Fabulous cookies. The powder went out on campus today for 2hrs... and it just so happens that it went out during my cooking class on campus. We were baking at the time for a big board meeting tomorrow and we didnt get to make our cookies because of the powder outage. I, being the wonderful student I am (HAHAHAHA) offered to make some cookies for the event because my professor was going to have to spend the entire day baking so many cookies herself... Here I Come to save the day!!! LOL Thanks :) Fabulous cookies ;)

awesome! they are crispy on the edges and chewy in the center. the extra bit of salt and vanilla gives them a better flavor and the shortening helps them from going flat in the oven. i creamed the butter and shortening with the sugars first and then added the eggs and vanilla (force of habit). mine were smaller than a tablespoon and they seemed to need about 8 minutes. great recipe...thanks L!

Great cookies! Followed the recipe exactly and my discerning chocolate chip cookie critic gave them two thumbs up. This replaces my old chocolate chip cookie recipes.

These cookies are AMAZING! This is that classic kind of recipe that everyone loves. They're crispy on the edges and soft in the centers and sooo delicious. I followed the recipe exactly except for using regular chocolate chips. Great recipe!

I made these with 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar, and with 1.5 teaspoon of cognac instead of the vanilla because that is what I had on hand. I also used organic semi-sweet Sunspire chocolate chips because they aren't raised using slave labor AND because they are the best chocolate chips I know of. These cookies are the best I've ever made! I'll definitely be making them again!

I have to say, these are quite nice. The only other kind of chocolate chip cookie I've made were tollhouse. I mixed white and semi-sweet chocolate chips. No nuts, hubby doesn't like them.
