    Strawberry Girl's Note:

    These truly are the best chocolate chip cookies that I've ever made. The chilling instructions before baking and the standing afterwards are very important steps. The texture turns out perfect.

      Very good classic chocolate chip cookie. Not too greasy like "Toll House". Nice crisp edges. My kids loved them. They are especially rich with 2 cups of chocolate chips!

      This is the best chocolate chip cookie that I have ever made ,and I've tried a lot of recipes! I like a cookie that improves with age and this one does, it is still moist and chewy and very good , not drying out like most do.The only thing I changed was oven temp to 350 deg and they were a nice golden brown in 8 min. I tried the just brown around edge with one batch, is not as nice to look at at all.I will stay with this recipe now.Thankyou for the recipe,blueangelica54
