"I was young when I submitted this, and totally submitte it wrong. and then I couldnt remember my old login password to change it but finally allrecipes changed it so now its perfect as written. My old..." See more review on this used to say "add 1/2 t baking soda" because i had forgotten to include it when i 1st submitted this recipe but once again allrecipes finally made the change so this recipe is now perfect as written. so dont change anything!!! However, Sometimes I do crisco instead of butter. but either way its good. This has been my favorite recipe since I was 14. Ive tried other ones, but always go back to this one. My friends all love it too, and they only use this recipe. I always underbake my cookies and then freeze them; that way they never get hard."
"Congratulations, Ashley! You've just passed our resident gourment taste tester. My 24 year old son gave you a 9 1/2 out of ten the first day these were baked and said the remaining 1/2 will be grant..." See moreed when they pass the freshness test in a couple of days. Well, they did. The dough is excellent to work with. I like a dough that I can roll into balls without messy hands. They stayed high after cooling, were chewy and chokeful of chocolate chips. I think the problem some had with inconsistency is because the dry ingredients have to be added in gradually as per instructions so that the baking powder will be well-distributed throughout the dough. After trying tens of recipes this is the one I'll keep. Thanks, Ashley."
