The cookies were too salty and had a funny taste to them. They are the worst cookies I have ever tasted.

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?

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 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.
