    These are truly very easy, quick and yummy!!! I’d reduce the sugar, but that’s my personal taste. They look and taste wonderful!

    It def didn’t need 1 cup + 1/4 of flour. These def taste more like sugar cookies as one of the above comments said. They’re very light in color and like cakey. They def do not need 8-10 min or the bottom will burn. Watch them very closely. Easy ingredients but not a good recipe. I wouldn’t make again

    There was slightly less flavor than I’m used to in cookies, which was strange, but dang did they come out with the perfect texture! I’d absolutely make these again.

    They didn’t expand much. They taste fine but appearance wise didn’t do it for me. Taste was like butter cookies.

    easy to make, but 8-12 minutes at 350° wasn't enough, so i increased it to 375°. still had bake for a bit longer than 12 mins. they tasted good but I'll try another recipe next time.

    Followed the recipe to a tee and baked for 12 minutes at 350. Bottom tray of cookies burned and were blackened on the bottoms. The cookies that weren’t burned were flattened like small unappealing pancakes. Unfortunately, going to have to give this recipe a pass.

    Made them 3 times now. Great, easy batch of cookies. My husband asks for them all the time. I would only use a 1\2 cup chocolate chips as this made a batch of a bakers dozen ( or so).

    Not that great... I mean, when I got it off the paper, some was still there. Plus there were WAY too many chips of chocolate! So I would recommend cutting down the chocolates. And they don't look too great either. One of my sisters refused to eat them just because of their look...but they still tasted okay for me and the rest of my family.

    Need something sweet quick! These cookies are really good and best of all easy. I did bake at 325 instead of 350.
