EVERYONE LOVES THESE COOKIES! I recommend using butter instead of margarine for better tasting cookies, and my oven took 12 minutes to make them golden and perfect. I couldn't believe how fast these cookies were eaten!! They are great!!

Very nice cookie. I also substituted butter and had good results. I only wanted to make a half a recipe so entered 3.5 to resize. Made about 2 1/2 dozen.

Wonderful recipe, and definitely a keeper. I have tried many chocolate chip cookie recipes and this is definitely one of the best I have tried so far, and I am a grandmother with lots of cookie baking experience. I added 3T sour cream to the butter/sugar mix. (I read that suggestion somewhere recently, I tried it and liked it.)
