I've made chocolate chip cookies for years, usually following the recipe on the bag of chips. This one is pretty close to the recipe on the bag, but something about this recipe makes the ultimate chocolate chip cookies! Very tasty & easy to make! From Oct 2004 GH.

Great, great cookies. Very easy to make and the baking time was right on! I always use parchment paper -- and these came out perfectly. A handful of these cookies and a nice cold glass of milk!!! HEAVEN!

I agree, these are truly the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made - they turned out just perfect. I am staying with my in-laws and baking in someone else's kitchen with an oven I was not sure of and they turned out just perfect - I did not change one thing in the recipe

There is something special about these cookies! I don't know what makes them so good, but they are. The flavor is just outstanding and they puff up nice out of the oven. You will probably want to double this recipe because they will be eaten up in no time - at least if your family is anything like mine.
