HELPFUL TIPS THAT WORK FOR ME: These never go wrong, but I find cookie recipes turn out different as far as thickness by the ingredients and temperatures you use them at. They turn out SO MUCH BETTER when you use eggs AND butter that are at room temperature. I always increase the vanilla, and you'll notice almost all other chocolate chip recipes on here have more as well because it tastes better! :) I also blend half chocolate chip&half semisweet chocolate chips. Makes a huge difference in the blend of flavors! MY SECRET: Add 1/8-1/4C andes mint chips in place of some of the cc, and everyone will beg for more!! Always hand mix recipes like this! No mixers or your cookie will be flat! My husband likes to microwave the cookies a tad & then of course eat w/a glass of milk. Now my son copies him. :) Though this is the recipe I've turned to for years, when I tried "Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie" on here & followed the advice of some reviews ...I switched. They found the secret to the biggest, chewiest cookie with the right mixture of sweetness!


I've tried many chocolate chip cookie recipes (especially from this website) and my favorite is still the one on the back of the chocolate chip bag! This is the one I grew up with and the one that I love. I do make one modification. I use 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening to keep them puffy.


NOT cool. These cookies have the worst presentation in the WORLD! SOOOOOOOOOOOOO flat!! I should have added more flour than the recipe called for. Maybe they wouldn't be so flat. The chips are elevated above the rest of the cookie. This is bad. I will NEVER make these again! Try "Best Chocolate Chip cookies" those are my all time FAVORITES! These are just not cool.
