    vERRY eXXCELLENT cOOOKIE! I worked 10 years as a baker and the recipe we used at the bake shop was similar except this recipe didn't call for any cream of tartar, so I added it to my version. I added 1/2 tspn. What it does is make the cookie crack better when baking which gives it a better appeal in appearance as appose to that smooth top looking cookie which I don't like. It doesn't do anything for flavor so if you don't care about whether its smooth or cracked then don't bother with the suggestion.  -  01 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    If it's even possible, I found a way to make these even better!! I ran out of flour, so I used 2 cups all purpose and 1 cup of ground oatmeal (Put it in the blender until ground fine like flour). The result was amazing.  -  20 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is the perfect chocolate chip cookie!! Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside!! For added flavor I also add l cup of white chocolate chips (try the brand that Aldi's carries...wonderful....better then Nestles!!) Some have stated that their cookies were too cakelike, this is caused by the addition of too much flour. To help prevent this, spoon flour into measuring cup, leveling off with knife, rather then dipping cup into flour. Roll dough into walnut size balls. Be careful not to overbake, I decrease my oven temperature to 325 and bake for l0 minutes. I have tried dozens of chocolate chip cookie recipes over the years, this one is far superior to any of them!! Makes 4 dozen. Thanks for sharing.  -  02 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
