    Really good cookies! They hold their shape instead of melting and spreading out I guess that’s why they are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

    It's really good especially when it just comes out of the oven. Although the dough tasted like bananas it was good!😋

    I wouldn't say they were the best. They came out ok, though.

    These cookies came out awesome! The only thing I did was put a little kosher salt on top to get that sweet and salty affect. These cookies are a hit with my family and forever be in my recipe box. Thanks:)

    The ratios were off not enough sugar, salt, or eggs. Taste was blah.

    Great! Had to add some cream to get the cookie dough to mix fully and used baking powder instead of soda. However, it worked pretty well! TASTY

    It was a good cookie recipe. Very basic tho. I like them better by adding instant vanillin pudding.

    This recipe is really pretty amazing and I've tried a lot of choc chip cookie recipes. I've melted the butter (accidentally, meaning to try to soften it too quickly) which actually seemed to make the cookies even better! Going to hang on to that tip for myself!

    I made the recipe exactly, except I added a half teaspoon more of salt and I left out the walnuts. They're delicious, this recipe is definitely a keeper.
