To ensure your cookies come out just right, follow a couple of basic rules: Space them at least 1 inch apart during baking, rotate the sheet pan half way through, and let the cookies cool on the sheet for 1 to 2 minutes before transferring to wire cooling racks. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

    These are very tasty cookies. 10 minutes was enough baking time (perhaps I made them a tad smaller; I made 30 cookies). I like that this is a small recipe. I will make again!

    My husband -the cookie connisoure- gave them a 10! After his first few changed it to a 12! I added raisins but made them to Martha's recipe. Excellent. thank you Martha for still having your recipes out there. I miss your show. Oatmeal in it in Wisconsin.

    This is a weekly staple in my house. So quick to get the dough together and because it only makes a couple of dozen cookies - it is fast to bake up. These cookies have a great texture - if something can be called crispy chewy. Since I love to bake- these just last a day or so - and then I can bake something new.

    I had to leave before the comments about freezing or having cookies ready ahead of time. The video sound quality was not audible. I would love to have the tips given after the recipe.

    This is my mom's recipe for chocolate chip cookies cut in half. If you double this recipe, some of the more unusual amounts become more standard (6TB's both sugars become 3/4 cup, etc.). It dates back over 50 years. She only had one cookbook back then: Joy of Cooking, from the late 30's or 1940"s, but I suspect she got it off the Nestle's chips bag, the Quaker Oats carton, or a magazine. We lived in St Louis and never had contact with Laura Evans. She sent me these at college and Vietnam often.

    Great recipe! Are you sure you drop by teaspoonfuls and not tablespoonfuls? Teaspoons were too small and tablespoons made exactly 24 cookies. YUMM!!
