Recipe Tips

- It is important to measure the flour properly when cookie baking. Here are our suggestions for measuring flour: Stir flour in the bag or canister with a large spoon to lighten it. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup and level with a spatula or knife. Be careful not to tap or shake the measuring cup when measuring. It is not necessary to sift the flour in baking unless the recipe specifically states to do so.

- To enhance the chewiness of these cookies we suggest covering and refrigerating the dough for at least 1 hour, or preferably overnight. Refrigerating the dough allows the flour in the dough to hydrate and the flavors in the dough to develop. In the Test Kitchens we tested this recipe and found that the cookies that had been refrigerated for at least one day or even two days were thicker and chewier than cookies immediately baked after mixing the dough.

- For 2 1/2-inch cookies, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. 48 cookies.

I've been Using this recipe for years and I love it ! Won't try another one lol I always keep the base and just use other chocolates, dry fruits or nuts. I'd like to make them all chocolate but what proportion of cocoa powder should I add ? Then should I add more sugar ? How much ? Thank you for your answers

I have been making this recipe for several years. The best chocolate chip cookie ever! I upgrade my vanilla and always add finest chocholate chips. However, the base consistency of the cookie itself is impeccable and everyone who has one of my cookies cannot resist how delectable they are! Andrea S.

Best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made and tasted. First found the recipe on the butter box. Recently I was looking for my recipe and could not find it. Thank goodness it's online. Just one ingredient was different, and that was the salt. The recipe from the box had no salt, but always felt it was missing.

I decided to try this chocolate chip recipe after spotting the recipe on the butter carton. These are the bomb! I have taken these to parties, work, and to holiday get togethers, and have had many requests for this recipe. They are perfect, crispy outside but tender inside. I make the recipe as directed and leave the dough in the fridge overnight. This recipe is a keeper!!

Best chocolate chip cookie recipe EVER! However, you've changed it since I first began making this recipe - the original recipe called for 3 1/4 Cups all-purpose flour and 1 Cup cake flour. The cake flour gives the cookies a crunchy surface, but the interior of the cookie stays chewy. I think it's worth the extra effort!!

I made this recipe a few months ago and everyone LOVED these cookies. I did not save the recipe...lost it...and could not replicate the cookies. So pleased I found the recipe again and I am baking a batch now to take to my son (in med school and he asked for these cookies!)

These Cookies are the best cookies, Big bakery style cookies even better than any other chocolate chip cookies, store bought or homemade, When I make them people can't believe that these didn't come from a bakery. Iv'e attempted to make other chocolate chip cookies off of chocolate chip bags, they can't compare to these, these are top of the line bakery style cookies, Believe me if you make these and they don't come out amazing it's not this recipe, Because these cookies are AWESOME!

This is THE BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe I've *ever* made, and I've tried A LOT. This is everything I've ever wanted out of a cookie. It's delicious, perfectly chewy, not too flat, not too thick - everything is just perfect. I don't think I'll ever try another chocolate chip cookie recipe again.

Very, very good recipe. Husband said these were the best cookies I've ever made. Usually the tollhouse recipe I use makes greasy, flat cookies. Not this recipe. Baking powder in this recipe helps the dough to rise in the oven and not produce flat cookies. Not greasy at all. Crispy outside and chewy inside. I will use this recipe from now on.

I don't usually bake from scratch, but since my birthday was coming up I decided to give this recipe a try. Now every time a special event comes up I always stick to this recipe. It is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe and I'am spreading the word to all of my friends so that they can try it! Thank you Land O' Lakes!

This is just the best recipe. I will never look for another. I thought it was perfect when baked right away. Will have to try to let them set overnight. Will be trying other recipes. This one is a diamond!
