    This recipe was so tastey! I saw a comment saying to cool the batter before baking. I put the batter in the freezer for about 10 minutes and they turedn out wonderful. Added M&M's along with chocolate chips. Probably the best cookies I have ever made! Thank you Martha!!!!!

    This is my favorite chocolate chip recipe I've ever made. I have a few important tips after some trial and errror 1. Refrigerate dough immediately after scooping out the cookies for the first batch. I didn't do this the first time and the first batch turned out great because the dough was cold but the second and third batches spread out flatter and flatter from the dough getting warm 2. Scoop them smaller rather than larger. With the time recommended, a tbsp scooped FLAT is the perfect size

    These cookies are very horrible in my opinion. First of all instead of 10 minutes we did 9 minutes and it burned all around and was uncooked on the inside. Then we tried 7 minutes and before it cooked completely we checked them and the dough melted but the chocolate didn't. When it was ready, it still was melted so we put them in for 1 more minute. Finally, when it finished it was barely cooked on the outside and melted on the inside. This is why I believe you shouldn't make these cookies.

    The dough spread out to the "soft and chewy" type cookie. I followed the recipe above and they are barely cakey. :(

    Bake on oven rack one slot above middle! I followed directions exactly, and placed the oven rack on the middle slot in my oven. However, my cookies were almost burnt on the bottom after 8 minutes yet still raw in the center. For the second batch I moved the oven tray up one slot and the cookies turned out perfect! I checked them after 8 minutes and added an additional 2 minutes for a total of 20 min. The cookies came out baked all the way through and were light golden on the edges!

    If prepared sans Chocolate Chips & made small & taller very cake like & pour Chocolate Ganache on tops are the ultimate in a Cookie. Not traditional yet extremely tasty! (=^_^=)
