Good, easy recipe. Whips up in no time. I did add more chips than stated. Also used giant chips. They are very chocolatey!

This was a very simple, easy and delicious recipe! My co-workers have hunted me down at work and ordered me to make these cookies again and again!

Can't go wrong with a good basic chocolate chip cookie! I don't feel like this recipe has enough chocolate chips, though, making it 4 stars, but that may just be my personal preference. I doubled the chocolate chips, and that made it a good 5-star cookie in my book. :) Thanks for sharing your mom's recipe!

I am so surprised with how these turned out! These were the best cookies I have ever made. Very similar to the store bought cookie dough and even better. this will be my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe now!

These cookies are amazing! They taste like the packaged kind, but better! My family loved them!

Easy recipe. I got 25 cookies and they baked for the full 12 minutes. The cookies spread a lot and are wafer thin when done. They are also brittle and sort of "cake" together. The taste is fine though. I'll try again and if I get another result I'll let you know.
Thanks for posting.

Wonderful, simple cookies. I didn't have any shortening so used butter but I can't fault the recipe. Thanks so much for posting it.

This was a very easy to make delicious cookie. The shortening amount along with the brown sugar made the cookie not greasy or limp. Bottom turned out crispy and the top remained slightly soft with a good texture.
