      I make this for every guest at our B&B. They always love them and usually ask for the recipe. I make sure to cream the butter and sugars until they turn light in color. Sometimes the batter is thicker, probably due to less humidity or cool weather. If it seems to gooey (before I add the chocolate chips), I add a lit more flour.

      I love these, and had it posted until recently discovered as a duplicate. It looks like the flour differs from the original, as well as the egg. The original recipe is 2 cups 2 Tbps flour, and it has 1 large whole egg, and 1 large egg yolk. Great cookies!

      This is MY favorite recipe for CCC. Everyone in the family seems to like different one's best, but this is perfect for me. I use ghiradelli 60% cocoa chocolate chips- they are the best for baking! I also chill the dough sometimes even overnight if I can because I think the bake perfectly like that. The dough is obviously firm from being cold, but I don't find the fresh dough stiff like many reviewers.
