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!

I found this recipe on the flour bag and was about to post it when I discovered it here... I tried it on a whim for a party and were they a hit! At least 4 people asked me who made the cookies because they were the best they'd ever tasted. I can't even describe how good they are. I had to make another half batch the next day to curb my family's craving for these cookies! I will never make any other chocolate chip cookie again. Yes, they're that good... try them!!

I tried this recipe a year ago, and then LOST it. I went to google thinking that there was no way that anyone would have placed this recipe online, but alas, I was wrong. And I am so glad I was wrong. This is one of those recipes that when baked, people would pay to eat the cookies. I was frantic earlier trying to find my recipe, but I'm fortunate to have found it here. Thank you Lainey66!

Wow! I think I've found the Holy Grail of chocolate chip cookies! This recipe is similar to my old stand-by recipe, but makes a bit more dough. However, it has TWICE the chocolate chips! I made them as pan cookies rather than drop, baked at 350* F for 25 minutes with the convection fan on for the first 20 minutes. When I served them up after they'd cooled to just above room temperature that they were not cooked through, but they actually are--the gooieness is all chocolate! There's a layer of ooey, gooey, chocolatey goodness inside these bars that really makes them a chocolate lover's delight! Thanks so much for posting, Lainey! Made for the Holiday Tag game.

I love this recipe! However, I find that the cookies are much better if you cut the flour by 1/2-1 cup. Absolutely delicious!

These were nice cookies, had a different flavour / texture than the traditional choc chip cookie. I added macadamia nuts but I don't think they were the right nut for this mix, I think that walnuts or pecans would be better. I added a little less choc chips and I think they'd be much better made as written with more chocolate. Thanks!

Of course Five Stars! Here's a tip I had heard on Public Radio's Splendid Table: Refrigerate the batter overnight and/or up to three days, covered. (Now of course, I always make a dozen right after mixing, for my husband's sake)! Anyway, if you then compare the two results, you will notice a better tasting and fuller cookie with a bit of crispiness at the bottom. Try it and see!

I love this recipe! I found that the cookies are more dense if you substitute half the the butter for shortening.
