Cindy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch
Makesabout 11 dozen
My kids and I made these and they turned out perfectly! I did not chill the dough and don't know that it made much difference in the end result. The cookies were delicious and this recipe makes a LOT of them!
Thank you Cindy!!! This is hands down, the absolute best chocolate chip recipe on the planet! My Mom often gives me cookbooks for Christmas and one, was the Taste of Home which had your recipe in it. I've always made the back of the cookie chip bag recipe and the cookies are never very flavoral... too bready, not crispy or very flavorful. I think the secret to your DELICIOUS cookies is the addition of shortening. I used chocolate chips instead bc that's what I had on hand. Didn't chill the dough and just simply followed your recipe in the Taste of Home Cookbook!! Thank you.
Yum! Nice chewy crispy cookies.
Will stick with my 'favorite' recipe of Choc. Chip Cookies. These were 'runny' (I chilled the dough overnight) and not nice looking. They tasted OK while warm.... I followed the recipe given to the nth degree as well!
I also added an extra cup of flour to a whole batch. Maybe even could have used more ?? Will see how they go over when eating. Good flavor overall. The first pan turned out like chocolate chip crispies....flat as a pancake and crisp rather than chewy (that was when I added the extra flour).
The batter tasted really good! But unfortunately the cookies did not bake well. The tops barely cooked and the bottoms burned up in 8 minutes. So be warned if you make Cindy's cookies don't cook for as long as it says!
Have been baking these since I was a wee lass. My family thinks they're lovely, as do I.
Great all-round cookie; however, my husband is stuck on the chocolate chip cookie recipe you make with vanilla instant pudding (that is why it is a 4 out of 5). The cookie is soft and has a good overall texture. I did follow the directions exactly but did cut the recipe in half. The key to the soft cookie is refrigerating it for the hour. I recently made the "copy that" Mrs.Field's chocolate chip cooke and the refrigeration was the secret to her recipe as well.
I didn't realize how much these actually made, luckily for me a few fire fighters were stealing them as they cooled down in the kitchen. They came out great and stayed moist, and were a big hit for the Bake event I gave them too.They were perfect, and I plan to bake them again tonight!I also added walnuts
Made these cookies last week for my family. They're a good, basic chocolate chip cookie. Tend to be on the crisper side. If they're too crispy for you, toss a slice of bread in your cookie jar. They'll soften right up!
