I cut this recipe out from a "Woman's World" magazine. It is a great recipe that is supposed to be All My Children's Deidre Hall's favourite.

Wow. Why has this recipe not gotten more reviews? It's truly a hidden gem and will leave the local bakery envious! This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I have EVER made. They look perfect and take just as good as they look. Thank you SO much for this recipe. I took the advice of others and used 4 1/2 cups of flour and also added 1 tsp of vanilla extract for flavoring. I took the cookies out 2 minutes ahead of the recommended time and the cookies were a beautiful brown shade (not burnt at all) on the bottoms and just beautiful on the top. These cookies were soft in the middle with a slightly crunchy outer crust JUST like we like them. My kids thoroughly enjoyed this recipe and I will def make this a family staple. If you are looking for a perfect cookie recipe..look NO further. Highly, highly recommend.

I've been making these for years. I tried them when the issue of Woman's World came out. The best chocolate chip cookie recipe!! I don't like flat chocolate chip cookies so these are perfect. I also add an extra half cup of flour and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract if using imitation, 1 1/2 tsp if using real vanilla. I use a large cookie scoop from Pampered Chef and they come out perfectly every time.

Fabulous! The best I've made - slightly crunchy on the outside, soft center. Unbelievable taste!

I used 4 1/2 c flour, 1 tsp french vanilla creamer in place of milk, as per other reviews. I also baked for 19 minutes.

This is now my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies!
