Made a batch of these yesterday and they turned out great!!! Didn't make any changes to the receipe however I did put the batter in the fridge for 20 minutes or so before spooning out onto the waxed paper lined pan. Because the batter was cold I bumped the time up to 13-14 minutes and that was perfect for me, nice and chewy. I used milk chocolate chips this time and plan to go with semi-sweet next time to compare. Don't see how they could be any better though !! Think that I'll put some in the freezer right now just to keep from eating them all today !!!
