Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 10mins
Top Review by amanda l b

While I thought these were a bit sweet for my palate, my 7 year old loves them and declared them "even better than granma's" (extremely high accolade!). Ours are quite crisp - and I'll spread them further apart next time as they spread quite a bit. Thanks for a hit recipe!
