This was very easy and quite good! I did think the batter was a bit bland -- perhaps it is because I enjoy a more buttery cookie. Next time I'll do 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening. Also - I wasn't sure what size bag of chocolate chips to use. I ended up using about 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips and it was perfect. Thanks for this recipie!

These cookies turned out very good. Poorly constructed DIRECTIONS; Be careful in the future to listing out each step, ingredient, and amount in the direction process. Not everyone who reads these recipes will realize that you missed a few ingredients and steps. Note we used an 11oz. bag of chocolate chips. We believe you can never have enough chocolate.
