This is an awesome recipe. I too found it on the bag. I add 85% Dark Chocolate, chopped fine. This are our favorites at home. Dough freezes well too. C. Smart

I also got this recipe off of the Gold Medal Organic Flour bag and it is without question the very best Chocolate Chip cookie recipe I have ever tried! Don't skimp on real vanilla and definitely at least the whole Tablespoon. They bake up beautifully golden and even and taste fantastic! Can't beat this recipe! Easier to make than any other, as well.

Best cookies ever. Simple ingredients for a truly extraordinary cookie. I was going to post this recipe and figured it was already up. Funny thing is, most people probably have this recipe already and don't even know it!
