Soft & Sweet Chocolate Chip Cookies

"This came from Betty Crocker's Best-Loved Recipes cookbook and were a Spirit of Betty Crocker Contest Winner, they surpass any other chocolate chip recipe that I have ever come by. They come out large, thick and chocolaty. These are the type of cookies you find in a bakery, everyone will rave! You do have to drop them by 1/4 cup and watch them carefully for them to turn out perfect."

    Carmen these are fabulous! We absolutely LOVE them. I followed your directions and they came out just like your picture showed. From now on this is the chocolate chip cookie for me. Thanks, Lisa

    They were very good! They were a little big though! I only used 1 cup sugar and 1 cup brown sugar and did not use the nuts, but used 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips! Might try making them a little smaller next time!! Thank you for the recipe :)

    These were fantastic! They were loaded with chocolate chips, were very big, and stayed soft, especially in the middle. This will now be my "go to" chocolate chip cookie recipe. Thanks for posting!
