  1. I loved these cookies!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!! I made a batch of these to send to my dh overseas. I also loved that they were not oily- i am hoping that they will ship better because of that! Thanks again! I know that I will have to make these again soon! :)
  2. LOVE these cookies! This recipe turned out way better than the one on the back of the chocolate chip bags. Definetly a keeper!
  3. So Easy! Very yummy. I doubled the recipe and it came out to about 60 cookies. This isn't helping my Husband's diet, :) .
  4. Great recipe! I use generous teaspoons, so I only got 24, which is still too many for 2 of us since we tend to eat them the same night! I set my oven to 370 and baked for 14 min. since my husband likes them crispy; I don't think I'd bake them longer than that. They are scrumptious!
  5. Best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever!! I will never use another recipe! A little tip for those who said it was dry--make sure you spoon the flour into the measuring cup. They will come out moist and chewy!


  1. Very easy to make. I've never made a good cookie until now. These came out great. I did use butter instead of margarine. I brought them to work and they got rave reviews and were gone very quickly. Thanks for making me a cookie maker.


I live in New Delhi, India. I am a stay-at-home grandmom. I spend a fair amount of time on the net....and while surfing for a recipe ran into this site. After that; this is it....a one-stop station for every kind of recipe. I have no favourite cookbook but love collecting recipes from any source. I play a lot of scrabble (Any potential scrabblers out there?!) and hate cooking in summers. Temperatures run into the 40 degrees cent. range and our kitchens are not airconditioned!! I love travelling and, given a chance, would take a month long luxury cruise which touched exotic ports! Aaaahhh....pure bliss!!!!
