I can’t even tell you how long I’ve had this recipe. I clipped it off the back of a bag of chocolate chips a LONG time ago. They have been a big hit with my family, neighbors, friends, and co-workers. I refer to them as, “the best chocolate chip cookie recipe EVER!” and I know many will agree. Enjoy!
