    Tried it today - was a big hit! Added dried cranberries in with the chocolate - it was great.

    This cookie recipe is a total hit. I made the cookies with my neice and nephew over the holiday weekend and everyone loved them.

    these are the best chocolate chip cookies i've ever made in my life and i've made thousands, i think. they are absolutely perfect--soft and delicious and chocolatey. these are the only ones i'll be making from now on.

    Excellent recipe. They came out perfectly. I used the peanut butter variation and it couldn't have been better. I will definitely use this recipe from here on.

    These are hands down the best choc chip cookies! They don't spread out too much, which I LOVE. I made the peanut butter version, and I used a bag of 60% cacao bittersweet Guittard chips. Awesome and decadent!! Also, I baked for 15 mins....perfect

    This is my new recipe for chocolate chip cookies! They are the best! My 8 year old loves making these and requests these. My mother-in-laws recipe is now going to the back of the book (and that used to be my favorite).

    Tip: refrigerate overnight, gives flavors a chance to marinate and the cold batter entering the hot oven delivers a better texture cookie. Best chocolate chip cookie recipe I have found. I double the recipe, subsitute the butter for criso butter flavored sticks, scoop the finished dough into gallon size hefty zip lock freezer bag. This conforms to my fridge or freezer much better than a tub. When we want cookies, we just pull out the bag and bake what we want. Delicious.

    These cookies are amazing! They're great warm from the oven, but they're even better the next day. The texture is perfect (a perfect combination of crispy, chewy & soft), and the buttery hint with the loads of chocolate chips is just heavenly! I used a larger cookie scoop and got 24 big cookies. This will probably become my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe!

    I haven't used another recipe since this one came out in the magazine. Positively THE Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe!

    AMAZING!!! I followed the recipe exactly, and added 1.5 cups chopped almonds. My husband is in love with these, haha I need to make sure he doesn't eat them all before I can give them to a friend for her birthday!! :) (Note: I dropped them by the tablespoonful and it made 4 dozen cookies, not 5)

    This was a great chocolate chip cookie recipe. I look forward to trying the variations- especially the peanut butter version! I will definitely save this recipe. The cookies did not spread out too much and tasted great!

    Replace the butter with butter flavored Crisco and this is the same recipe I've been using since the late 80's (the recipe came from a BF Crisco pull out card in Southern Living!). After years of trying out other chocolate chip cookies in comparison to this one, everyone always prefers this one! It is really the best I've ever made or eaten!

  • SusanGates Posted: 01/16/11

    I added a total of 1 tsp of salt and about 1/2 cup of raisins. Plus 2 Tbsp of cocoa powder. Absolutely outstanding.

    I followed this recipe exactly the way it was printed and made the chocolate chip cookies. Every time I make these cookies I get so many compliments! Everyone loves these cookies and my children always ask for more! Thanks for this great recipe!

    These cookies are amazing! I add little white chocolate chips and toasted coconut shreds. I've used half the amount of butter and they still come out great. My husband loves them - they disappear at our house

    Needed a whole lot of cookies in very little time. Found this recipe, tweaked the Oatmeal-Raisin version slightly, and it worked perfectly. I used 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour for half of the all-purpose, and walnuts instead of raisins. I decreased the size to 1/2-tablespoon and cooked for only 6 minutes or so. Got eight dozen cookies instead of five. Everyone loved them!

    You are correct it is the toll house recipe, 1/4 less butter and more vanilla, Good recipe but I have been making it since I was 12, that was in the 70's

  • Skittles Posted: 11/18/11

    I'm I missing something? Isn't this the TollHouse recipe with 1/4 less butter?

  • EUlrich Posted: 12/15/11

    Perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. I doubled the recipe & upped the ante by using all organic ingredients with the exception of my favorite Ghirardelli chocolate chips. Yummy!

    Something went terribly wrong with mine ! They did not come out as crisp as i had imagined and i wonder if its Baking soda that is to be used or Baking powder ? The base id nice and golden brown but the top looks pale and whitish ! Just finished baking a batch and really dissapointed :-(

    Great recipe! Me and my kids did this for snack and my kids asked for us to make some more! We used to have Berry Buttermilk Soup which we found on GourmetRecipe.com but it's nice to try new things. I often check it out for recipes and cooking information including this website, KraftRecipes.com, WikiChicken.com, EverythingLemon.com, theSaladSite.com and Gourmandia.com for different moods and occasions. Thanks for this appetizing recipe! By the way, here's the link to the mentioned recipe: www.gourmetrecipe.com/recipes/berry-buttermilk-soup

    This recipe turns out perfectly every time. Our favorite variation is to reduce the flour by 1/4 cup and add I cup each of oatmeal and dried cherries. Soft, chewy, and full of chocolate!

    Add a little less brown sugar and use about half the bag of chocolate chips . I was kinda bummed with my results wouldn't recommend it .

    I'm not sure if I underbaked these cookies, but I was disappointed in the way they looked and taster. I was expecting a bit more for an Ultimate cookie.

  • isbell Posted: 11/30/13

    Same recipe that Toll House has been putting out for years with the exception of 25% less butter. Here's what we do to improve it for consistent results time after time. First thing, substitute the Crisco Butter flavored sticks for the butter and use 1 whole stick at room temperature (that is 1 cup of shortening). Before baking, slightly refrigerate the dough. These two steps make the cookies a bit taller when baked and not flatten out like a pancake. Of course, if you like your cookies to be as flat as roadkill, use the butter and do not refrigerate them. Taste will be the same.....
