    First successful batch of choc chip cookies!  -  30 Nov 2014


    These are delicious and there is nothing wrong with the recipe. I only have one small point to make. I doubled the mixture, knowing I had family over and wanting double the amount, I used tbsps. I still got just 21 cookies. Tsps of mixture would have made tiny cookies, not like cookies at all.  -  18 Apr 2015
