Recipe by SilentCricket

Get a glass of cold milk ready! This has been my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe of all time, found in a Betty Crocker cookbook years ago. Once I made it for my HS Latin class and it became a class tradition and a family favorite...Thank you, Betty!

I have tried several cookie recipes from this site, including a lot of highly rated chocolate chip cookie recipes. These were by far the best and most reliable. I use several different type cookie sheets, and they always turned out great. This was definitely the best recipe!
