So disappointed! I am glad many others had luck with these, however, I did not. There is way too much flour; the batter was so dry & when I baked them, they just crumbled. I even went to the extra expense of buying Land O Lakes products and they still turned out poorly. I made two batches and then threw the rest of the mix out. Heart broken that I wasted so much money and time. Hope others continue to have better luck!

These cookies are so easy to make! And the smell filled every room in my home. I was worried the dough was not as moist as I had imagined, but it had no effect on the flavor!

I have made many different chocolate chip cookies. These are by far the best cookies I have ever made. So rich and flavorful. I was surprised how dry the mix was. I had to roll the cookies into balls and place on the cookie sheet. However, the cookies came out amazing. I would recommend these to anyone who was a crunchy edge, but a soft center cookie. Thank you LandOLakes!

Love this recipe! I have an Autistic grandson who is obsessed with hand mixers and baking. We make these cookies almost every day for his baking therapy. Everyone loves them! They are soft and chewy.
