I must agree with the other reviews posted...fantastic cookie. I used 1 1/4 cups of chocolate chips as that seemed like plenty. The whole bag would have been too much. Nice texture--not at all greasy like Toll House. After first batch browned a little too much on the bottom, I lowered temperature to 350°F and cooked for 10 minutes--they cooked to golden perfection without browning the bottoms too much.

My mom made these for me the other day, and they were fabulous! I don't know where Elizabeth comes up with these exquisite recipes, but they are absolutely heavenly! Keep 'em coming!
