    Came out more like a batter- cookies didn’t hold shape and spread out in the oven.

    I dont know what went wrong but my cookies b"dough" was not at all a cookie dough, it was more like cake batter. This recipe is horrible and i suggest you dont make it because i wasted a lot of ingredients. Im very dissapointed. Bad recipe, the cookies expan too much probabky because of the surplus ammount of baking soda..i thought to follow this recipe thoighc

    I don't know what went wrong, but my cookies turned out like cake balls. Instead of being too runny like most people had said (which was what I would've prefered) mine puffed out and up, and the texture was disgusting. I followed this recipe to the T and even watched the video. I'm sure this recipe is great, but it did not work for me.

      Update: I realized that altitude also affects a lot of things. I live at a 5,000 ft+ altitude so I should have adjusted the recipe, by adding less baking soda and increasing the oven temp by 25 degrees, which I did not take into consideration.

    I’ve been making these cookies for a few years now and they always turn out amazing. I love them, my family loves them. I’ve even shared Martha’s recipe with friends because it’s so good. This recipe is always my go to for a sweet, baked treat in the house.

    It wasn't quite what we were expecting. After a healthful dinner of kale and quinoa, my sister and I decided to indulge in the decadence of chocolate chip cookies, trusting only Martha herself to direct our baking. We used the correct measurements but melted the butter for a bit too long. We thought, "This is no problem, our fearless, wise teacher will not fail us." We were gravely mistaken. Our dough has the consistency of batter and stuck to our fingers like some ungodly things I don't want to mention on such a pristine website. Our cookies took hours to bake (figuratively of course) as we waited in anticipation to see what masterpiece we had created. Upon opening the oven, we discovered that our cookies had merged into a colossal flat cookie! We broke it into chunks and mixed it with ice cream and voil la! We realized that Martha had not led us astray, but took us on another journey we had not expected. All hail Martha.

    Best.Chocolate Chip Cookies.EVER! I just about have the recipe memorized. Always a hit with my family and my girls love to help make them. Perfectly chewy, just how we like them. I've made them with GF, 1:1 flour as well and they still turn out beautifully.

    The edges are perfectly crunchy and they mix with the soft middle nicely. My mother loved it! Needs 12-14 minutes.
