Hi Cheryl, sorry to hear you've been having issues with this recipe. We'd suggest refreshing your ingredients - your leavening may have gone bad. Also, make sure not to over-soften your butter, because this could cause the spreading. Finally, your oven may be running hot so we'd suggest recalibrating. Hope this helps!

I have made these for years, however for the last 10 years or so they have been going flat when baked. I still use the same ingredients. Any suggestions on what may be going wrong?

I have tried this in the past and it was exactly the way a chocolate chip cookie should be. I recently tried a different cookie and it was way too dense. Next time I use this recipe, I am going to replace the 1 cup of chocolate chips with 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of craisins for a Christmas-y cookie.

Always my goto cookie recipe....also was for my mom...never fails to make a perfect cookie. Anyone who says otherwise most likely can't read a recipe. Just sayin.

This recipe fails on every level every time! i have tried this recipe over and over and can't seem to get the right consistency for the cookie dough; too wet, too dry, too frustrating!!!

This may be an American cookie, but here in Australia, I have been making these for over 40 years. I got the original recipe from a Kelloggs cornflake packet, & always add a cup of cornflakes last. It gives extra crunch. These cookies never last long.

This recipe is the best. I always use the salted butter, and it makes it just perfect. Love it!

How can you not love this all American classic ? I make these all the time. I use a small cookie scoop for these, and all my drop cookies. I find it easier to use than a spoon.
