Though they tasted pretty good, I was disappointed with these cookies. I don't know what I did wrong, but they looked burned (even though they weren't) and when I baked them for a little less time so that they did not look burned, the centers weren't done. They weren't very attractive, but again, they tasted okay.

My family absolutely LOVES these cookies. I have to bake them at least once every two weeks or else I've got a bunch of rabid people wanting chocolate! I usually substitute the baking soda for baking powder, though, because the cookies are fluffier .

Last minute cookout

A group of friends decided to throw together a cookout and I decided to put these in the oven as I was preparing other food. I made these in bars and everyone loved them. This recipe was so easy.

I love milk chocolate and this to me is so much better than the semi sweet which I love to. I now have a new favorite chocolate chip cookie!

My husband couldn't stop eating the cookies. They were so good I had to make more two days later.

These are some of the best cookies I have ever made. And using the milk chocolate, was an extra bonus.

Original Nestle' Toll House cookies

I just LOVE these cookies! I make them so often that I've begun to play a little with the recipe (raspberry flavored coffee syrup in place of vanilla, different flavors of chips or mixed chips) This is a wonderful "old standby" (cuz I remember eating these as a little girl!)
