This recipe was easy to follow and made yummy cookies. Stepson and I made them for Santa tonight. Santa loved them!!! We used 1/2 PB chips and 1/2 milk chocolate chips. Paired with eggnog for a Santa Surprise!

This recipe produced a traditional tasting chocolate chip cookie with a cake-like consistency. Or at least that's what I baked up...puppitypup's picture shows flatter cookies than mine. Regardless, they taste good.

These might be the BEST COOKIES I've ever had! The consistency is absolutely perfect and the taste is devine. Thank you Nicalyn, this recipe is a definite keeper! Edited to say that I've been making these for a year now and they turn out perfect every time. My picture doesn't do them justice.
