This recipe is definitely a family favorite. I used to make these cookies at least once a week, and they disappeared about as fast as I could make them, especially when my son Eric and his friends would stampede into the kitchen after school!

These were a nice change to my "regular" ones. The butter flavoring makes a big difference and I was OK w/ the sugar...not my favorite but everyone else seemed good with it. I did cook at 350 out of habit andthey turned out great. This ones a keeper!

Delicious cookies! I used real butter, rather than margarine, and did not have butter flavoring so I omitted it. Also, I was a bit lazy and used a cookie scoop rather than shaping into balls. :) I had never given the "sugar treatment" to the tops of chocolate chip cookies--usually only peanut butter cookies. My husband and son were a bit unsure how they felt about it (just because it was different), but they sure ate them up! Great recipe--thank you for posting it!
