This is an awesome cookie worth the little extra work caused from only cooking 6 at a time and then cooling on paper toweling. You won't be disappointed, I guarantee it!

This recipe is very good. Rich and buttery tasting. Crispy on the outside and moist and flavorful when you bite into it. The amount of ingredients when put together form a nice shaped cookie. Easy to make.

Not sure what went awrye with these, but they tuned out completely paper thin. I followed the recipe (although I did make a half recipe) and left off the optional walnuts. I tried to follow your directions and use 2Tbs of batter and six per sheet, but they ended up sticking a lot in the middles. So I ended up making them more like 1 tsp... they still sort of stuck. Luckily, BF likes his chocolate chip cookies very thin and crisp and the flavor in these were just fine. I didn't cool on paper towels- they were a little to crumbly for them to be moved around too much when they were hot. Not sure what went wrong, but we enjoyed them anyway.
