    These are fantastic cookies! I make them at least once a month and every time they taste even better. These cookies are my go-to snack + very easy to make. Thanks Martha Stewart!

    Absolutely foolproof. I don't see why people have problems with this recipe, I can only assume they're making a mistake somewhere along the way. I make this recipe all the time and get requests for the recipe every time someone new tries them.

      I should have read the comments! My fault! These came out "see through" FLAT. After reading I should have added more flour. 2 1/2 or 2 3/4

    I feel the need to defend this recipe. I have been making this exact recipe for about 12 years and every single time I have made it it has been great. I go exactly by the recipe and don't change anything and it is wonderful. The only time I have switched anything up is when I have been out of butter and I have used earth balance in it's place and it has worked out perfectly.

    They were in the oven and before I knew it they were finished, and my parents and grandfather loved them, thank you so much for making the cookies.

    By far the best soft chocolate chips cookies I have ever made or tasted! I’m adding some PB chips and m&ms, roll the dough and freez some of it for later
