I like the flavour, but I found that 15 minutes in the oven was too long. The cookies came out too crispy. Shave off a few minutes and they are softer. Very delicious though. Thank you.

I thought I lost this recipe a few years ago when my computer crashed. I'm so glad I found it! I always get compliments on them. During Christmas, I add one teaspoon peppermint extract and crushed candy canes! Mmmmmm.

very good, baking took about 10 minutes in my oven, and came off the baking sheet fine when i waited a couple of minutes for them to harden after coming out of the oven. they didn't spread much but for me, that just meant i could fit more on the sheet and do less batches..you could always flatten them with a fork after spooning on the batter if you want. i think 3 cups of chips would be way too many, i put just under 2 cups and even that is borderline...from now on i'll use 1.5 cups

Great tasting cookie! I didn't have margarine on hand so I used butter. Next time I will make them using margarine to see what the difference is. Thanks for a great recipe.

I made these for my good baskets on monday they were very good. and pretty simple i chilled the dough overnight just because i wanted to make the dough the night before i made them they were soft and mine weren't flat at all but anyways these will most likely stay on my list for next year

These cookies were chewy and very tasty, but mine came out extremely flat, and they were fragile (I baked them on parchment paper after the first batch stuck hopelessly to the cookie sheet and fell apart). Next time I think I'll try omitting the water and chilling the dough for a while before baking. (note - I used 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup regular shortening.) Still looking for that perfect recipe...

I made these cookies but altered the recipe a bit. I left out the water and the corn syrup and reduced the vanilla to 2teaspoons. They turned out great. If you are looking to get a flatter cookie, try dropping the sheet pan on the counter just as you take them out of the oven. I do this and they collapse.

I'm very disappointed! =( I made these hoping I finally found a cookie that would "spread out" and go somehwat flat while baking. I always get mile-high cookies which I did not want! These did not spread out at all, and look nothing like the photo! =( They tasted good, but don't look it. Thanks for the recipe, though. =)
