Though they tasted pretty good, I was disappointed with these cookies. I don't know what I did wrong, but they looked burned (even though they weren't) and when I baked them for a little less time so that they did not look burned, the centers weren't done. They weren't very attractive, but again, they tasted okay.
My family absolutely LOVES these cookies. I have to bake them at least once every two weeks or else I've got a bunch of rabid people wanting chocolate! I usually substitute the baking soda for baking powder, though, because the cookies are fluffier .
My mom always made these for me, now I make for my children. I subsitute Crisco for the butter..it makes a great crisp cookie. I love them!!
A group of friends decided to throw together a cookout and I decided to put these in the oven as I was preparing other food. I made these in bars and everyone loved them. This recipe was so easy.
The recipe is quick and easy. I added more chocolate morsels. The cookies were delicious. Everybody loved them.
I love milk chocolate and this to me is so much better than the semi sweet which I love to. I now have a new favorite chocolate chip cookie!
My husband couldn't stop eating the cookies. They were so good I had to make more two days later.
