Used a stick and a half of butter instead of two, because when I used two they came out completely flat. With less butter they came out perfect! Delicious recipe

This is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. In fact it's the only one I will use. I am also partial to the original Toll House chips also but you don't have to use them. They make a great bar if you bake them for 25 min. Great for cookie cakes!!!
