I was young when I submitted this, and totally submitte it wrong. and then I couldnt remember my old login password to change it but finally allrecipes changed it so now its perfect as written. My old review on this used to say "add 1/2 t baking soda" because i had forgotten to include it when i 1st submitted this recipe but once again allrecipes finally made the change so this recipe is now perfect as written. so dont change anything!!! However, Sometimes I do crisco instead of butter. but either way its good. This has been my favorite recipe since I was 14. Ive tried other ones, but always go back to this one. My friends all love it too, and they only use this recipe. I always underbake my cookies and then freeze them; that way they never get hard. - 27 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Congratulations, Ashley! You've just passed our resident gourment taste tester. My 24 year old son gave you a 9 1/2 out of ten the first day these were baked and said the remaining 1/2 will be granted when they pass the freshness test in a couple of days. Well, they did. The dough is excellent to work with. I like a dough that I can roll into balls without messy hands. They stayed high after cooling, were chewy and chokeful of chocolate chips. I think the problem some had with inconsistency is because the dry ingredients have to be added in gradually as per instructions so that the baking powder will be well-distributed throughout the dough. After trying tens of recipes this is the one I'll keep. Thanks, Ashley. - 23 Aug 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Too much flour. Way too dry. Won't be using this recipe again. - 26 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
