I tried this recipe with all purpose flour, and used 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup brown sugar. These cookies were delicious. I also added bits of crushed pretzels and sprinkled vanilla fleur de sel on top. The were incredible. I am going to try this recipe using whole wheat and all purpose flour next time.

I could not believe how delicious these cookies were. I did a few changes added butterscotch chips w/ the chocolate chips. I love soft cookies & my boyfriend loves crunchy and the cookies can be baked to a cruchy state. Bravo to the person that came up with this recipe. Thank you from Hollister, California Yvonne S.

These are super delicious! The only thing I changed was the amount of sugar. I used 1/2 cup of each sugar. I also used milk chocolate chips instead of semisweet.
