    ChefboiR2D2's Note:

    I have been using this recipe since 1993. The original version came from Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book. Over time, of course, I have changed it to suit my preferences. I am sure you and yours will love this very classic of classics as much as me and mine! NOTE: I use old fashioned shortening with animal fats when I make these.

      thanks chef for a terrific recipe!! the whole hive loved them, i got 56 good sized cookies from this recipe.....the only change i made was to add in chopped walnuts......i also was a little shy on choc. chips so made up the small difference by covering the difference with white chips also......good texture and i liked how they didn't go flat....i earned my crown today!

      I also halved the recipe and added walnuts. Great cookies, chewier than I was expecting, I'm used to cookies baking down nearly flat. I would bake these again.
