this is the best chocolate chip recipe you'll find. i like to take it out still doughy- that's how my family likes it. i have also made it with whole wheat flour and it tasted just as good!!!

Just made these and am so disappointed. The first batch came out look awful because of the little bit of flour I used on my hands to roll them into balls. After 10 minutes, they were still not done. Had to put them on for another 5 minuts. I let them cool on the pan, and then attempted to take them off the pan. They were stuck all over the pan. They ended up hard. So the next batch, I dropped smaller teaspoonfulls onto the pan instead of rolling and timed them for 8 minutes. Gooey. Put the timer on for another 2 minutes and decided to just follow the directions and not cook more than 10 mins. Gooey in the center. Had to stick them back in. Took them out and let them cool. Crunchy on the outside, undercooked on the inside. :( Soo disappointed I wasted all my ingredients. This recipe makes a crispy/CHEWY cookie. Not a SOFT cookie.
