I wanted a non-dairy recipe, so I substituted shortening for the butter. Not a good idea. The cookies came out chewy, but not quite soft once they became cool. I would say that they are alright, but not amazing. I think that the substitution wasn't a good idea, but generally, I think I'm going to look for a recipe with more brown sugar content, or preferably molasses.
I have been using this recipe for years...Best Chocolate Chip Cookies ever....I put a rolo candy peice in the center of my dough and then bake. Good
Wow are these good! Just as you said soft & chewy. Like others I added 1/2 tsp of salt, I also used mini chips (all I had) but it seemed like there was more chips using them. I used my cookie scoop and ended up with nice, fat, round cookies -- beautiful. They took about 14 minutes but I have a screwy oven, I just had to watch after 10 mins. I was hoping to see how they held up (if they stayed as nice as they baked up) but no chance there, they just didn't last that long! Great recipe, my go to from now on. Thank you! Smiles -- Nina
I always turn to this recipe whenever I'm preparing a care package. The cookies stay softer so much longer than my usual recipe. (My husband isn't very fond of the pudding flavor, which is why I don't use this recipe all the time.) It is also fun to use M&M's instead of chocolate chips if they are for a party.
Taste-tested, hubby approved! These are hand-down the softest, moistest, most delicious cookie recipe - and I'm going to trade chips for thumbprint jelly cookies today! Merry Christmas!
flavor was good but the cookies fluffed up when baking and then flattened out and became sticky<br/>when taken out. Maybe it's me but something went wrong.
My nephew is visiting and needed something for a party he was going to and picked this recipe out from all the others I'd saved. Made two batches, one with vanilla pudding and chocolate chips and one with chocolate pudding and white chocolate chips. They are both great. Left out the nuts as I don't send those to parties with kids for fear of possible allergies but bet they'd be even better with them. Will are soft, chewy and delicious.
These were like cake cookies, not chewy
