Crisp and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookie people take sides. You're either a soft-and-chewy fan or a lover of thin and crisp. But everyone goes for these chocolate chip treats. They're soft in the middle, slightly crunchy at the edges, and extra-big.

    These are simply rich in every way possible. Perfectly baked they are the right amount of chewy, soft and just the right amount of chocolatelyness. Everyone who has tasted my Martha Chocolate Chip Cookie wants MORE. That's a good indication of a good recipe. Thank you Martha.

    I followed this recipe exactly. I ended up with a puddle of melted butter with chocolate chips in the middle. Obviously there is too much butter in the recipe. This error needs to be corrected! I used to think that all Martha Stewart recipes were well tested. Obviously that is not always the case.

      If you're like me, you may have confused the "two and a half sticks of butter" with two and a half CUPS, which is wrong. A stick of butter is only half a cup, so this recipe is calling for one and a quarter cups butter. I tried this recipe and it was perfect!

    This cookie was chewy and a little crispy....perfect just as I would of thought. For those who said it was greasy or had too much flour must not have used unsalted butter and or sifted their cake flour.

    This was my standard chocolate chip cookie recipe. It used to come out as described. I've tried making this again, a few times. Each time, they spread out so thin. I'll try decreasing the butter to 2 sticks and see if they don't spread out too much.

    Perfect cookie. I altered by using only 2 sticks of butter (european). Oh and 2 cups of dark chocolate chips instead of 1 1/2 cups.... duh. A very good cookie.
