  • Add salt.

  • Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
  • Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet, about 1 inch apart.

  1. I find it tastes a lot better when you put Easter eggs on them
  2. Do the cookie s get hard after cooling?


  1. Really, really good! I made them for my family and they loved them! ( I made the mistake of using the wrong pan so they were a little burnt on the bottom but that was totally my fault.) Amazing.
  2. it didn't taste good it tasted like posion
  3. Really good I made them the other day and by the end of the day there were 3 left. Now i’m going to make them again
  4. Best cookie that I have ever tasted it was an easy thing to make and you don’t have to use a lot of ingredients. My family loves them they ate them all in one day. If I like it then you will like it too.??
  5. This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. Period. I've made them many times for my vegan uncle by subbing butter for vegan butter and the eggs for 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 tsp baking powder. I also sub all the sugar for granulated. They're crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside and best fresh out of the oven.
