Questions & Replies

  1. If the butter is still cold and the bowl it is mixed in will it cause the bottoms of the cookies to burn


  1. Used a stick and a half of butter instead of two, because when I used two they came out completely flat. With less butter they came out perfect! Delicious recipe
  2. I didn't add the nuts and accidentally completely melted the butter ?? so I had to leave it in the fridge to harden up amlittle more. Don't melt te butter! Haha but other than tht great recipe!
  3. This is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. In fact it's the only one I will use. I am also partial to the original Toll House chips also but you don't have to use them. They make a great bar if you bake them for 25 min. Great for cookie cakes!!!
  4. A tasty cookie but too sweet for me. I found the ammount of sugar way too much! I don't know if I made something wrong but the cookies turn out like Shortbread cookies. I halfed the ammount and I got 25 big cookies. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made it for PAC Spring 2009.
