I love these! I did find them a little bit flat, so as suggested, I replaced ALL of the soda with powder and the results were amazing! Tablespoon sezed cookies work, I think, the best. And their small size does add to their "poofy-ness".


These cookies came out absolutely amazing! Were easy and quick, a good classical chocolate chip cookie. I read a previous person's suggestion to replace the baking soda with baking powder to avoid flatness, and decided to use 1 t baking soda and only 1/2 t baking powder, to make the cookies rise just a little. Came out perfect! When I didn't burn the sheet ;-)


I've been making these cookies for several years. Everyone LOVES my cookies. I love to see the look on my friends faces when they take the first bite. These taste nothing like the usual toll house cookie recipe. The dough freezes very well and my kids make these all of the time. You can also replace the chocolate chips with toffee bits, (the kind without chocolate) they are to die for.
