    Amazing! I love this recipe. I sometimes add walnuts or try using various types of chips like white chocolate, butterscotch, etc

    These are the perfect chocolate chip cookies. Not too sweet, not too crisp or too chewy, just perfect. Stop scrolling, this is the recipe you are looking for

    Out of this world. To space and the final frontier went my tastebuds with a side of Milky Way.

    The cookies turned out great. Instwad of cookes l made cookie bars. l will never do that again. But overall they were good and delicious, but a little on the sweet side. I would make this recipe again and make the cookies instead of the cookie bars.

    This is the perfect chocolate chip cookie 🍪! The perfect amount of crunch on the bottom while still soft on the top! A must try!

    These were absolutely delicious! I have never baked and decided it was time to not fear my oven! I think that for a first timer like me, it’s a great recipe and very simple.

    Cookies spread more than I anticipated but they turned out well otherwise. Put some of the batter into a cast iron skillet and baked a giant cookie as well :)

    This is the worst recipe for cookies ever. I followed the directions and went back and checked several times to see if I made a mistake. They didn't bake right. They're like cookie balls with moosh in the middle. Awful! Not even the chocolate chips wanted to be near these cookies.

    I was trying to find a cookie that was not too thick but still soft and chewy around the edges and I lucked up and this is it. This recipe was amazing but I did mix and include white chocolate, milk chocolate and caramel chips I used 4 cups rather than the 2 cups called for in the recipe and added walnuts. I will make these again

    Turns out great. I made half recipe and reduce the sugar because my oven is small and my dad needs to control his sugar level, nevertheless: the cookies disappeared fast

    I ended up having to bake for 15 minutes but they are sooooo good. I’m not a great baker and I was able to whip these bad boys up
