2 Stars=ok. Sorry, these cookies were bland. I've tried a few recipes using cake flour and bread flour, such as the New York Times chocolate chip cookie, but I'm not seeing the benefit in the texture in either recipe. Very buttery, not too sweet, did not come out crisp, but wasn't looking for a crisp cookie. I think this recipe needs to go back to the drawing board, really lacks flavor. Won't make this recipe again, but there are other very good recipes on this site.

Wow! These cookies are delicious! I did substitute all purpose flour and used unsalted butter with only 1/2 cup of chips and they came out perfect. Thank you! I will be using this recipe again.
