I had high hopes for these, but after following the instructions exactly and baking for 18+ minutes, they still are not browning and taste raw. I love chewy cookies, but these are a bit much for me.

Kids were home from school today (snow day!) so we decided to make these for the first time. After they cooled I gave one to my husband to "taste test" and he asked for another and said, "those are gooood" This recipe is a keeper!!! They are absolutely delicious! Followed the recipe to a T. Thank you for sharing.

These were the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. If you buy some quality chocolate chips to go in they are perfection. The only down side is you can actually taste the pounds attaching themselves. I had to give them away quickly so that I did not eat them all. My husband also loved them! Thanks for sharing.

I'm doing another review because I tweaked the recipe a bit and came out with an entirely different cookie. This time I used two WHOLE eggs, peanut butter chips and chopped pecans, plus made teaspoon-sized dollops instead of the larger ones suggested in the recipe. You wouldn't even know that it was the same basic recipe. These cookies were flat, which is strictly a commentary on the size not the taste, as they were absolutely delicious and a huge hit as my contribution to the family Christmas party. Also, they were a lot chewier than the batch made with the original recipe. As far as I'm concerned, this is still a 5-star recipe!

I was excited to try the "best c.c. cookie" ever. They were wonderful when they first came out of the oven. Mmmm, warm, soft, chippy, chewy goodness. I made them a smaller "regular" size - not the bakery style size. And the very next day, they were all hardened, and quite crunchy. And then the next day, they were even harder. And since I do try to not eat so many cookies all at once, we had some left a few days later, which at that point, they were so tough, we didn't dare give them to grandma for fear she might literally crack her teeth on them. I can only assume it's b/c I made them smaller, and cooked them for 14 minutes (as they were just turning golden brown) - this perhaps was too long. But I don't taste much difference b/c this and the Nestle's Toll House cookies which do come out crunchy, but at least they don't become rocks after 3 days. I had even frozen part of the batch, to keep longer, and they ended up just as hard (after thawing). If I ever have a need to make bakery sized cookies, I'll try this recipe again, since everyone else seemed to have good luck with it, but for standard (1.5in) reliable, super yummy cc cookies, I'll stick to the Toll House recipe.

I prepared following the receipe exactly. The cookies did not appear to be baking properly at such a low heat so I increased the temperature to 350, but they came out too crunchy. I will need to try again using the advised temp and take them out even if they don't look right. Taste was great, but not the chewy consistancy I hoped for. I had also done smaller size which may have contributed and think I had too many chocolate chips.
