    Swapped in some monkfruit sugar to taste/preference and used about a half bag each of semisweet chocolate chips and Ghiradelli dark chocolate chips, again to taste. Definitely chill the dough a couple hours (sometimes I “cheat” that by putting in the freezer for a little while after fridge). Also needs more than 10 min in the oven, more like ~15, but keep an eye.

    Super easy, really tasty. Will make them again. - Used half milk and half semi-sweet chocolate chips. - Didn’t have self rising flour, just sifted 1/2tsp of salt and 3tsp of baking powder into some all pourpose and they came out great.

    It turned out great! I used butter scotch chips instead of chocolate chips. It was so good that while I was chilling the cookie dough my sister stole and ate half of it!

    We loved this recipe! I had to substitute half of the butter because I was running low. I used Coconut oil and it was successful! They are a hit in this fam! I will do it again!

    great recipe I added a Teaspoon of almond extract to mine and one more egg and they came out soft and delicious(after letting cool for 15 mins) for better handling.

    Turned out quite well! Not sure the size recommended so I let the family tell me “when” one spoonful size ;) Used ghiradelli dark chocolate chips and they are especially yummy! I like the minimal and easy ingredients; for whatever reason I hate measuring out baking soda and salt so I loved that it was mostly relegated to cups for the sugar. I used just the one egg and followed the recipe to a T. Wish I had chilled the dough to give it more form. But the taste was absolutely lovely.

    My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe! These are so soft and delicious and taste like they're from a bakery. YUM!

    These cookies are THE best! Not sure why anyone would give these a low rating, because the flavor is amazing and they're very easy to make. You can even add other chocolate chips like white or caramel for variation.

    The batter seemed dry at first but they turned out perfect! Used 10oz of chocolate chips rather than 12.

    I've been making this recipe for awhile now. I have never left a review until now. I use a dark non-stick pan and cook them at 350 degrees instead of 375. In the past I have found the cookies to be flat, with dark brown bottoms. Today I decided to use 2 eggs instead of 1. HUGE IMPROVEMENT!! These are the best cookies ever! Try using milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet, with 2 eggs though!

    Easy to make, but tasted too buttery, maybe I will use margarine next time

    I didn’t have enough chocolate chips so I substituted with dried coconut. They still tasted pretty good though. Super easy to make too
