If I could give this 20 stars, I would. Quite possibly the BEST choc. chip cookie I have ever had. Everyone raves about these cookies, they all beg me for the recipe. I do make a few minor changes: I use dark brown sugar and instead of the nuts, I substitute semi-sweet chunks, about 1/2 bag and for the milk chocolate, I use about 1/2 bag milk chocolate chips. I always make sure I have very fresh baking soda so these cookies are nice and "plump" and not flat. The best, try them, you'll love them too!!
