This recipe won first place in our county fair. My son submitted it and it won! We increased the flour by 1/4 cup (to make 2 cups of flour total). We used two eggs (how does one get a half of an egg??)and we used a layer of white chips and swirled choc/white chips. It all fits in the jar if you pack it in well. We will be making these for Christmas gifts this year.

This recipe is super easy to put together and are probably the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted. They are a little crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. I increased the flour to 2 cups and changed to 2 eggs and decreased the chocolate chips to 1-1/2 cups. I also found that if you pack every layer as you go, there is too much room left open at the top of the jar. So I only packed it down at the top before adding a final layer of chocolate chips. (I layered it like this: flour, chocolate chips, flour, brown sugar, flour and chocolate chips. Very pretty! Thank you!
