"Are you hoping to bake a slightly thicker, chewier cookie than the usual Tollhouse recipe? After tinkering with the classic, I pulled a tray of perfect cookies out of the oven. They don't spread as much as the Tollhouse variety, so they're tender all the way through. Don't be scared off by the shortening that is used in place of butter: that's what keeps these chippers so nice and soft. Last night was the third time I've made them, and everyone who has eaten one comments that these are the best tasting, and looking, chocoloate chip cookies they've ever eaten. I tend to agree!"

"Very soft and chewy, I guess I am just a sugarholic cause I thought they could be a little sweeter, I may add a little more sugar next time. Great recipe."
"These were a big hit with my family. Great cookies!! Thanks"
"The best Chocolate Chips cookies-The family loves them.The Cinnamon added great flavour.Excellant recipe. Thanks :)"
"These cookies came out perfect!!! I made a few batches with different types of chips and they all came out wonderful. This is my new cookie recipe. Thanks "
"I can't cook. But this recipe smoothly walked me through the steps. We loved these cookies. This recipe is definitely a keeper !!"
"I was attracted to the name of these cookies, since I am someone who intentionally underbakes cookies in order to keep them soft. I just hate dry, crumbly cookies! (If a recipe description says the cookies are "crisp," I run away!) These are awesome. I am not a cinnamon fan when it comes to cookies, but I decided to give it a try here and I was surprised to find how much I liked it. You don't taste the cinnamon, you just detect that there's "something" in the cookies - it adds an extra dimension to the taste, and I think it enhances the vanilla flavor. I used 2 cups of chocolate chips and added 1/4 cup each of pecans and Rice Krispie cereal. The cereal just adds texture - no real taste. I also pressed a pecan half into the top of each cookie before baking, so these were very attractive, too. I personally thought the cookies kept pretty well (not that they lasted long in my house) and what I REALLY liked was how they didn't break in storage. These would probably mail well. I took some in to work to share and they were loved by all who tried them. Thanks for this recipe, which I will use often!"
"These just didn't have enough flavor for my family and me. They were cake-like and not the chewy texture we like in our choco chip cookies. They do end up looking nice and fluffy, but they don't keep very long. The next day they had started to harden already, I'm guessing that is what happens with a shortening based cookie. I think I will stick with using butter for the flavor. I wonder if it would taste better if butter flavored shortening was used?"
"This recipe is great.These cookies taste wonderful.They bake nice,and are easy to make.Will make again!!!"
"By far the best chocolate chip recipe I've ever tried. The cookies came out fluffy not flat! Mine were also done at the 8-minute mark. I'll toss my other recipes... this is a keeper!"
"FINALLY!! A chocolate chip cookie that even IIIII can't mess up! *LOL* These are tender and bake up great time after time. Mine were done after the 8 minute mark. My new chocolate chip cookie recipe! Thanks!!! "
