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.
