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!

These cookies turned out great. The recipe says that it makes 7 dozen, but I like my cookies a little bigger so I dropped the dough by tablespoonfuls and came out with exactly 4 dozen large cookies. Normally, I like to use real butter to make cookies, but this time I used margarine, since real butter is getting so expensive. The combination of margarine and shortening used really makes these turns out just as well as using butter. This is the recipe that I'll use from now on. Update: I made this dough and froze it for a month and it still turned out great, even after being frozen.

I made these last night and I think they are wonderful! I had tried a few recipes for chewey cookies and this is the first one that I have found that didn't turn out cake-like. Plus, this recipe was much easier than many that I have tried in the past. I will save this one and make again.

Great recipe!!! These cookies hold up very well even when using milk chocolate chips. They have the perfect consistency and the wonderful flavor of butter! Also very good with about 1 cup of chopped pecans. Thank you for posting this!

Wonderful!! When I first looked at this recipe I didn't think it looked that much different, but was I surprised! These have a crunchy outside and chewy inside that beats any I've ever made. Thanks!

My daughter beat me to the punch. I was going to make these today but my daughter made them last night. She said as she munched on her first tray of cooked cookies, "A very easy recipe to make for such a wonderful flavoured and textured Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe." My daughter hide a litre ice-cream container full of these biscuits so she could take them to work because then she could be assured that she would get to eat some of the cookies. Just as well too; because when my daughter and I woke up this morning, her brother who studies in the wee hours of the morning, had eaten about half of the remaining chocolate chip cookies. So I reckon that that speaks for itself on how good these cookies are!!! Just the best Chocolate Chip Cookies I have tasted as I slink off with a small container of these cookies to hide in my room so my son doesn't eat these too

This recipe is probably the best and easiest Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe I have made! My husband is not very fond of chocolate chip cookies, but he can't keep his hand out of the cookie jar!! I put in more vanilla than the recipe called for 1 TBS, and it turned out great. Today I am making another batch, and I am going to replace the chocolate for Reese's Peanut Butter Chips! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

Good recipe, Martha! I got up early this a.m. to make a batch for morning tea for my hubby. He said he liked them much better than the Tollhouse cookies I have made. I had to agree with him. I think the shortening makes all the difference in the texture and taste. I made some soft and chewy and some that were crunchier. Yum! Thanks a bunch!

Had a craving for something sweet at 9 p.m. last night. Nothing in the house, so decided to make cookies (what else do you do at 9 p.m. at night when you have a sweet tooth??!!). Made a batch, ate some, refrigerated the rest of the dough and went to bed with the intention of baking the remaining batches this morning. Let the dough come back to room temperature, and it produced many additional batches of delicious cookies (made mine with peanut butter chips and pecans) -- YUM! Very nice, not-too-sweet recipe.
