    Omg these are the best cookies I've ever created. They came out so perfect and moist that you'd never believe that they were homemade and not bought from a store. They look so perfect I don't even want to at them. Perfect in color, perfect in texture, and tastes perfect. I'm using this recipe for the rest of my life.
    I will try this recipe again, even though I am disappointed in the first try. They are very flat, not at all like the picture. I think maybe it being a very warm summer day had something to do with this. The dough was kind of goopy and I think that I should have added another tablespoon of flour to compensate. The taste is very good, though, not too sweet. I like the idea of using both butter and shortening. All butter and they are always too flat. All shortening and they hold a nice shape, but the taste suffers. I also like the amount of cookies, some recipes make way more than I want. I think the recipe is worth trying again.
    My most favourite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe!
    I love love love this recipe! It is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe - people always rave about it. It's the Special Dark Chocolate Chips that make a difference!
    really good! just make sure you just scoop on the dough, cause it spreads quite fast!
