Excellent cookies! The original contributor is right; substitute some margarine for part of the shortening. Our family also thought it needed a lot more vanilla; I'd triple what it calls for. But the cookies were fantastic, and definitely a big hit! - 21 Jan 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Tasted great. Yet cookie was flat. Any tips on how to remedy that? - 09 Jul 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is without a doubt the best chocolate chip cookie recipe. I've been freezing the dough in cookie-size balls, flash freezing them, putting them in freezer bags and giving them as extra treats to my friends when they have new babies. I'm not sure if any of the dough has actually gotten baked, or if it all got eaten straight out of the freezer. YUMMY! - 13 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
