Delicious soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies! These are similiar to Nestle' Tollhouse cookies but not. The one thing I liked about this recipe is the dough was much stiffer than standard cookie dough (similiar to Mrs. Fields doughs). The cookies did not run on my cookie sheet yet they spread just right - I sometimes have difficulty with the Tollhouse recipe running and producing a flatter cookie than I'd like; I think this cookie dough is foolproof. I used butter and 3 Tablespoons of vanilla (love my vanilla) when making this recipe. I baked my cookies for about 8 minutes until they browned a bit but were soft and light in the center of the cookie. The yield is right on target at 6 dozen cookies. Thanks so much for sharing I think I've found my new chocolate chip cookie recipe!

These really are the best home made Chocolate Chip cookies ever. Not putting anty pam or spray oil on the pan makes them so fluffy and yummy. I had to keep my husband from eating them all in one day! J/J. I don't ever need another Chocolate Chip cookie recipe.

I halved the recipe using two eggs and just 2 cups of flour. My cookies came out a little flat once they cooled (but i didn't really spoon them in rounded scoops, more flat) and for next time I may lessen the butter just a little bit. I will also try a little harder to spread my (white) chocolate chips more evenly because some had waaay many while others had almost none. Other than that everything else was perfectly fine. Each batch cooked in 10 minutes and I put in one tray at a time.

These came out delicious - so soft and almost chewy (I haven't yet come across a recipe that yields genuinely chewy cookies, so no matter). I reduced the yield to two dozen, which ended up making about 18 decent sized cookies. I used white chocolate chips with chopped fresh pistachios - yummy!!

These will definitely be made again, TNT cookies. I was worried the dough would be too dry but it mixed up and was just very firm. My daughter said these are like the dough that you can buy in tubs, so I think this would make a great gift for the holidays. The only other recipe I have used that came out this soft had pudding mix in it, which I think defeats the purpose of making them from scratch.

Good cookies, I used 50% chcolocate chips and 50 % walnuts. Baking time had to be adjusted to 18 minutes in my oven.

These were the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made! They didn't spread out like the tollhouse recipe and they didn't get that slightly chemical taste like the pudding recipes. Wow! I had 2 sticks of unsalted butter and 1/4 stick of salted, so I added 3/4 tsp of salt instead of 1/2. Next time I'll make it with unsalted and add 1 tsp of salt because I like it slightly less salty. Soooo good, thanks for the keeper!
