This is the best recipe for chocolate chip cookies I've ever made. I've been making this one for at least 10 years. I believe the secret is under baking. Take them out when they are just a touch moist in the center. I love the way these cookies are a little salty and I alway use double the amount of chocolate chips. Thanks for posting, I was going to today to ensure I never lose this recipe. Lisa
