These are heavenly good. I made the dough and sent it off to be cooked by 4 teenagers, a rather risky endeavour at the best of times. They succeeded wildly and saved 1 (oh, joy - 1!) for me to sample. It was really scrumptious. This recipe obviously has been very carefully worked out, and I changed nothing, nor felt it needed any changing. It's perfect.
I don't even remember what the original Doubletree Chocolate Chip Cookies taste like because it's been so long since I've had one. What I do know is that when I made these cookies last night and sampled one they were absolutely heavenly! I love the buttery flavor of the cookie and the hint of cinnamon. These cookies hit the spot for my sweet tooth (teeth). My husband and I both enjoyed them thoroughly. Thanks for posting!
This is a great recipe, but if you want to get the " all over chocolate feeling" freeze the chips and pulse them a couple times in a food blender.
