I have been using this recipe for more than 40 years. I always add the extra 1/2 cup of flour for a rounder cookie & I add a cup of coconut flakes. It makes the cookies moister. My family & friends love them. As a matter of fact, I quit making any other type of cookie but this recipe since it's always a hit.

Great chocolate chip cookies! I made just as directed other than omitting the nuts. I did add the extra 1/2 cup flour. I baked mine for about 10 minutes. I only got about 5 dozen cookies so maybe I made mine bigger.

WOW!!! Not much more I can say about these cookies. I made them for our Valentines Day Dessert Buffet (along with another chocolate chip cookie recipe that was equally delicious), and hubby loved them, as did I. The grand-kids (ages 9 mon, 2, 3 & 7 yrs) stopped by the next day and gobbled up all our left over dessert cookies (which we didn't have many of). Thanks for sharing your recipe. I saved your recipe & plan to make these again. Simply terrific!

This is the best recipe EVER I have been using it from my card file system since 1972 the original card is no longer usable wish I could get a replacement card. This is a must try .

This is a classic! It is the recipe I love best in the green 1971 Betty Crocker Box! Delicious and easy. Definitely a keeper and a "go to". Thank you for posting this oldie-but-goodie!

My grandma was not Betty Crocker but I call this "my grandma's chocolate chip cookies". They are always the hit of the party. The bad news is that they don't keep very well but the good news is that they don't last very long either! I recommend freezing if they won't be gone within 3 days.

My two sisters and I made these with both of our grandmothers and our mom as well. My grandma said that the secret is to use a wooden spoon to stir in the flour and the chocolate chips. I also had tweaked the recipe with 1/2 to 3/4 extra cup of flour, a extra splash of vanilla and slightly less on the baking soda. They are REALLY good with mini chocolate chips as well.

We really enjoyed this recipe, thank you for posting. Also enjoyed reading the background in the forum. I did add the additinal 1/2 C flour, made a very nice batch of cookies. Perfect

Nice cookies, just the way I like them - cakey, not chewy. I omitted the nuts as the kids dislike nuts, so added the extra 1/2 cup flour mentioned in step 2. I will make these again, thank you.

OK, OK, I know it says chocolate chip but I had some white chocolate, some semisweet chocolate and a few more butterscotch chips leftover begging me to do something with them. So I tagged this because they all totaled (6 oz). Oh! these are so yummy, they melt in your mouth. My DD has an awesome recipe (which she won't share) this is so close to hers. I cut the recipe in half and froze the other 1/2 of the dough because I didn't want to make a pig of myself. Thanks for posting. :)

Wonderful chocolate chip cookie recipe, as with most of Betty Crocker recipes!!! I made these yesterday morning, 1/2 of the recipe, and they are almost gone. I followed the recipe as written and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing the recipe NWG!!
