    Wow, these are good! Got 44 cookies and they baked for 10 minutes. What else can I say, made them just as stated and wouldn't change a thing. They are melt-in-your-mouth cookies, perfect!<br/>Thanks for posting.

    Possibly the best chocolate chip cookie ever. My dh was over the moon. He was so pleased. He ate most of the cookies himself, I had to make another batch to give in our cookie baskets. Thank you so much for making me look like a star. These tasty cookies are perfect, crisp, tender, with melting chocolate, could there be anything better :)

    I have used this recipe a million times & I still think it's the best chocolate chip cookie recipe there is. It is the exact same recipe as the original Toll House Cookie recipe. That's why they taste so good. Thanks for posting, this will make it more handy for me when I need my chocolate chip cookie fix.

    "mmmmmmmm!" Was my instant reaction when first tasting this cookie, Loved it loved it! It's not very often I find a choc chip cookie that can do that. As I'm not much of a sweet tooth, but these certainly did. Beautiful. Now I just need to hide them from everyone else hehehe
