These super soft chocolate chip cookies are my daughter Brittanys' favorite. She likes soft cookies, and these are about the best ones I have found.

They really are nice and soft and chewy! The kids love them. One son actually asked for a batch with no chocolate chips!!! He just wants the cookie part cause it's so good. The only thing I did differently was to add the sugars to the butter when I creamed them because the butter and liquids never came together for me. Great recipe, Tracy!

I thought these were a little on the greasy side. If I make them again, I will cut back on the butter a bit. They had a nice flavor, however.

Brittany knows her cookies! These were very good and my kids loved them too. Using one inch balls, this recipe makes far more than 4 dozen cookies. It could be halved. These are so good warm from the oven, I just kept half the dough in the fridge to bake another time.
