    DO NOT MAKE THIS RECIPE AS GIVEN! This recipe is seriously flawed! A cup and a half of chocolate chips for all this dough? Wrong! The ingredients should have been given in weight form, though a lot of home bakers probably do not have a scale. At least the recipe should have given the method for measuring the flour, which can make a huge difference in how baked goods turn out. My cookies also turned out in a big blob. Try using more flour next time. What a waste of expensive ingredients and time!

    I've been making these cookies for years and always to rave reviews! People have nicknamed them my "saucer cookies" as a nod to their glorious size. I'll never get tired of the sweet caramel taste of these buttery beauties. Thanks Lexi and Martha!

    These are, without a doubt, the most amazing chocolate chip cookies...ever! I have been using this recipe for years, and my kids - who are now full grown - will not accept any other homemade chocolate chip cookie! These are also Santa's all-time favorite cookie!

    Not my favourite - a little too sweet and greasy; not enough chocolate chips per cookie; they burn easily; & don't travel well in a lunch bag BUT they are great served with vanilla bean ice cream. Make them Large and bend into a taco shell shape when warm -then let cool and harden and kids can make Taco Sundays.

    THE BEST COOKIES IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!! These cookies NEVER fail to impress & wow people. Since they spread when baked, I make mine smaller & can get almost 300 cookies out of one batch. THANK YOU, LEXI! THANK YOU, MARTHA!!!

    I have made these forever and they are the BEST! Everyone loves them. That said, if you want a thick chewy Mrs Fields' type cookie, this is not the recipe for you. They do spread and are very buttery but that's why they taste so good! I looked for years for a crispy thin CC cookie and this was where I stopped looking! Thanks!

    BTW, this recipe was formulated long ago by Alexis Stewart--not the test kitchen--hence the name, Lexi's Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies.

    I LOVE these cookies. I use a SILPAT and put only 4 staggered balls of dough per sheet (18" x 12"). I've made them for years and have always received enthusiastic praise from the people to whom they've been served. However: they're different from traditional chocolate chip cookies so not everyone may be pleased with the results. Try them and decide for yourself. ; )
