"Wow, Sharon will you marry me. These cookies are amazing. They were quick and easy to make and tasted fantastic. Good luck keeping them around. Made exactly as written but used chunks of extra dark chocolate instead of chocolate chips, as I didn't have any. The chocolate chunks worked perfectly in these lovely large, sweet cookie. My dh is over the moon....say's this is a 10* recipe. Thanks so much for making me look good and for sharing this treat."
"These cookies are amazing. I made as written. In my opinion, when making these cookies, it is a must to use Chuncky chocolate chips. I also think it is a must to add chopped walnuts. Great recipe!!! I'm sure you can add all kinds of your favorite goodies."
"I made these and agree, simple, no mixer needed, but needs some elbow grease! I recommend a large pot (rice krispie sized), things get tricky to blend in your average saucepan. The key is to just chill the rolled dough and let the cookies finish, aka"
"The great thing about this recipe is the versatility of it. Here are a few suggestions:<br/> Chilling the dough is a must and I even place the dough balls in the freezer on the cookie sheet for a few minutes while I wait for my oven to preheat.<br/>I use all types of chocolate (sometimes omit the white chocolate) and love to add nuts because it balances out the toffee brown sugar goodness. <br/>After the butter is melted and has that browned butter smell, I add the sugars immediately and stir and stir and stir until the mixture is glossy smooth. <br/>Love these cookies!"
"Sharon thank you so much for this recipe. I am an avid baker and have well over 500 cookbooks, at least 25 devoted just to cookies. I also have a folder of just Chocolate Chip cookie recipes. Yours is the new favorite for all the friends and customers I bake for. I also love the ease of the recipe made all by hand and the fact that they are excellent "keepers. "<br/>The timing was perfect since I saw a wonderful idea for Halloween with Chocolate chip cookies. You put about 3 large chips upside down on top before baking. When the cookies are cool you melt some chips with a very small amount of shortening added and pipe legs on the big chips to make spiders.<br/>Big, big hit with grown-ups and children alike."
"These are some seriously good cookies! And, what an interesting technique. I halved the recipe only because I only had one stick of butter and they turned out great. Nice, light texture with just the slightest hint of cinnamon. This recipe goes straight to the keeper file. Thanks for posting the recipe!"
"Such an awesome cookie! Love that I could prep this all in one pot. I skipped the white chocolate and did semi-sweet and extra dark chocolate chips instead. I ended up with extra dough, so made some "cookie donuts" just for fun. I found under-baking them by 2 to 3 minutes was best. They firm up quite a bit overnight. Work quickly to roll/scoop them--the dough starts to fall apart if they get too warm."
"WOW!!! Not much more I can say about these cookies. I made them for our Valentines Day Dessert Buffet (along with another chocolate chip cookie recipe that was equally delicious), and hubby loved them, as did I. The grand-kids (ages 9 mon, 2, 3 & 7 yrs) stopped by the next day and gobbled up all our left over dessert cookies (which we didn't have many of). Thanks for sharing your recipe. I saved your recipe & plan to make these again. Simply terrific!"
"Very yummy cookies, I made a batch yesterday after this recipe popped up on my facebook feed. I had to cook them 3-4 minutes longer than the recipe calls for - probably my oven, but they were still very soft and chewy at that point. I did add a cup of toasted walnut pieces to mine because we like nuts with our chocolate chips. My S.O. asked if we had enough for him to share with his work buddies - that's his highest compliment. This recipe will go in our keeper file.Oh, I wish people would take the time to proof their recipes/ingredient lists before posting them online. The amount of dark brown sugar is confusing and there is no amount listed in the ingredient list for the salt (although thankfully it is listed in the instruction). Might make things hard for someone who is not an experienced baker. 12/24/14 Edited to add - we have since started making these minus the cinnamon and adding in a cup of macadamia nuts. Too many folks said they were good but that the cinnamon didn't belong in them and made a weird taste combo. Also noted, I have to bake them about 5-6 minutes longer than the recipe states when making 2 dozen cookies as indicated in the recipe. I also see the author edited the recipe to clarify the brown sugar measurement. That's a good thing. :)"
"These are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made they are delicious. I will definitely be keeping this recipe in my go to recipe from now on. The only problem I had was the way they look they didn't look anything like the picture although they taste very good look of them wasn't very good. hopefully someone can give me a tip on how to make them look as good as they taste! Thanks so much for submitting these recipe."
"Very good recipe! Next time I'll cut down on the chocolate chips to one cup just to reduce the sugar content as a personal preference."
