    400 just seems to high. Bottoms were overdone and tops were undercooked. They somehow tasted bland.

    They were yummy! I followed the recipe and directions, except I used light brown sugar (did a 1:1 substitute because I didn’t have dark brown sugar). I feel like 2 cups max on the semi sweet chocolate chips are more than enough for this recipe. My own personal taste, I’d cut it down to maybe 1.5 cups semi sweet chocolate chips. And keeping them in a 400ºF oven for 10 mins was ok in a regular cookie sheet.

    I’ve never really been big in chocolate chip cookies I’m not the biggest chocolate fan I honestly could not stop eating these Resting the dough for AT least 24 hours is key It seems the longer the better I made some three days later and Oh Boy such goodness I experienced I would give 10 stars if I could

    These cookies flattened right out and were a greasy mess. Worst recipe I’ve tried so far

    Its now my favorite chocolate chip recipe. I browned my butter and let it cool down before adding it. I also reduced chocolate chips to 1 cup for my own preference.

    Best looking cookies I’ve ever made. Chopped ghiradelli instead of chips, semisweet and white chocolate. Grab the cold milk they were so good!!!

    Amazing! Mouthwatering! I wanted to make another batch after I made them! My whole family enjoyed it! We gobbled them after they came out of the oven! They explained the cookies exactly right, " They will melt in your mouth." Definitely 5 star! Thank you for sharing!!
