Sorry, I guess I should have known when it said baking powder and melted butter. I never melt butter for any baking and I usually use baking soda. They puffed up like a cake. They are just not my kind of chocolate chip cookie. I like flat chewy cookies. These are not it. The taste is fine and my hubby loves them. It's just me, I guess.
I tried making chocolate chip cookies from scratch before and failed... Today I tried this recipe with a few modifications: <br/>1. I cut the recipe in half. <br/>2. I didn't use salt at all <br/>3. I used I can't believe it's not butter instead<br/>4. I only had light brown sugar so I used that<br/>5. I also didn't add extra tablespoons of flour. <br/>6. I used 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips and 1 cup of crushed walnuts<br/>The content was not dry at all but after cooling it in the fridge for 30 minutes, the texture of the dough came out as it should. I baked it for about 13 minutes, left it out for too long because I got distracted.. probably about an hour or so.. a tad crunch on the outside but still soft in the inside!! SUCCESS!! I can't say these are the best cookies I've had but still delicious! I will keep this recipe. Thanks!
Wonderful recipe! I took half the dough and added a pack of VIA (stbux) instant coffee and nuts, then the other half was left as is for our boring boys to eat. Yummy!
I baked several batches of these cookies recently. I made the cookies about half the size and baked them for around 12 minutes. For me these are quite standard chocolate chip cookies- perhaps not especially unique but a reliable recipe and everyone who tried one was very happy!
I have been looking for my forever choc chip cookies recipe and this one is it. It is the best ever, perfect size, texture and taste. Perfection. Thanks
these were very good! thanks!
excellent cookies! my husband made these for me (he said he followed the recipe EXACTLY)... I believe him.
These are very good...richer than the usual chocolate chip cookie.
I've been making chocolate chip cookies for many years now, and these are definitely THE BEST chocolate chip cookies I've ever had!! These will be my "go to" recipe from now until I die!! Thank you, Steve_G!!
Coming out of the oven, I thought these were the best cookies I'd ever eaten. Awesome! Even my husband commented how good they are, and I make a lot of cookies so he's not easily impressed:) They do crisp up as they cool, and would suggest watching the baking time, taking out before you think they're "done." I used light brown sugar, didn't chill the dough, used my Doughmakers cookie sheet with no parchment paper, and used about a tablespoon of dough for each cookie. Definitely a recipe I'll make again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
