I have been trying to make a good chocolate chip cookie for almost 10 years now. It wasn't until someone told me to try this recipe, that I had finally found the true "ultimate chocolate chip cookie" recipe. I think these cookies are the absolute best ever!! Whenever I make them for my family, they usually don't make it till the next day. Finally, I can go to bed at night knowing I have found it at last!


I agree,a very good chocolate chip cookie is hard to find, good texture and just the right amount of sweetness to it. Only recipe I need have anymore - We all love em and no they do not last long at all.
