    Why do have to make the cookies so big?? I have to make a hugh batch of cookies for my husbands pool league and I don't think a normal doubling it will work in this case if you use so much dough on one cookie.... But on the other hand I don't want to make the normal ones and break peoples teeth.....

    Your recipe calls for 2 cups of chocolate chips, but the directions say 1/2 package which is only 1 cup. Which one is it?

    Great ideas!! I've made the Tollhouse Cookie recipe on the back of the bag and every time they turned out like rocks. I also found that adding more brown sugar and less white sugar makes a chewier cookie too. :)

    Made them last night. They were really good - I sign up under all the previous comments here. Though afre 9-11 minures they weren't quite baked through, I thought, so I baked them for about 15 min. I figured out, that you have to keep an eye on them the whole time after 10 min, and pull them out, when the top just starts getting brownish. Worked good, my husband loved it. The are sure worth trying!!!! Thank you for the great recipe!

    These are wonderful... I have used butter flavored crisco since it came on the market.. It makes a much better cookie.. Wonderful!

    Jocelyn, Climate may have something to do with the variation in baking times -- you're on the East Coast and Jim's not. Just a thought.

    I made these for my family and who would have thought that I had been making inferior cookies all these years???? Thanks! They really love them.

    I just baked these cookies yesterday. I NEVER cook with Crisco, but I gave the butter-flavored Crisco a try. I followed the directions exactly, baking at 350 for about 9-11 mins, but they came out just slightly too crispy for my liking. I was expecting "soft" and "chewy" with just a hint of a crisp on the outside. If I were to try again, I'd reduce the bake time to 7-8 mins, however, for health's sake, I'm going back to butter.
