A generous helping of two types of chips -- semisweet and milk chocolate -- makes these soft, cakey cookies even more tempting than usual.

    This is my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. I love the taste that the sour cream gives to the cookies- and these stay soft without feeling undercooked. I generally put in slightly less salt, and have made them substituting regular table salt without any issues.

    They were very soft and stayed that way! You can make them healthier by making it with oats, whole wheat flour and ground flax seed (and a tiny bit of milk if it seems too dry) and also add 2 heaping tsp of brown sugar. They also don't make a 2 dozen, only about 15 or 16.

    This recipe was not a favorite that will be repeated. True it is soft, but the baking soda or the salt or both, leave an unpleasant salty aftertaste. I followed the recipe exactly as written and the cookie came out like it was supposed to, but I didn't like the taste. The fact that half the cookies are still around after almost a week is testament to how bad they were.

    What's unique about these is that they stay soft, never hardening into a brittle mess liike other choc-chip recipes do. After trying these just once, my friends and family now insist upon them. The "all-purpose flour" I used is the blend variety, i.e., some whole-wheat flour mixed in. Also used course sea-salt, which enhances the chocolate flavor nicely.

    These were pretty good. A soft chocolate-chip cookie.

    Delicious with a great texture! I added a bit more salt than the recipe called for because I tasted the batter, of course, and it was a bit bland. I crushed 2 frozen chocolate bars instead of using chocolate chips, because I had none, and they turned out chocolatey and fantastic!

    The texture of these cookies was really nice, but they were somewhat lacking flavor-wise. I added an extra 1/4 C dark brown sugar and tsp of vanilla, and they were still a bit bland.

    Nice, easy recipe with great results! Only changes I made: used stevia instead of white sugar, non fat greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and threw in a large handful of craisons just because. Result? An excellent cookie with a nice "crumb" as they say. Have lots of ice cold milk on hand.

    After looking on the internet for the lat 3 weeks for a successful cookie recipe I think I finally found it! I loved these cookies - soft and cakey and smell soooo wonderful! The only problem that I ran into was the salt - I could taste it in the cookies, as if it didn't dissolve although I mixed all the ingredients very well. Why is coarse salt used and not regular salt? Isn't it more difficult to dissolve? Next time I will try using regular salt. Otherwise - a true success for my family!
