Additional Notes: 

*I think about 18 ounces of chocolate chips (3 cups) is perfect for this recipe!

This recipe was submitted by guest chef Amy Faber. Photos taken by me (Tammy).

She writes, "I have found that adding a little extra flour makes them fluffier, while still chewy and delicious."

This cookie dough can be frozen and baked at a later time.

Tammy's Review: 

These are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made!! Baking each sheet (I used stainless steel cookie sheets) for 11 minutes was perfect. These cookies are just perfect! Chewy, chocolate-y... yummy!!

These are the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had! They stay really soft and everyone who you share them with enjoys them as well. They’re really easy to make for large gatherings and once you bring them once they will become expected!

Tammy, this are one of the best recipes I have tried for Chocolate Chip Cookies. I made a batch on the weekend. Using a 1/4" cookie dough scoop I got about 10 dozen...so far! I stopped baking when I reached that many!!! The rest of the dough is in the freezer for another day.
Thanks again :-)

I made these last night with whole wheat pastry flour! Chewy, soft and yummy! I am going to freeze the rest of the dough so I don't over indulge!

Love this recipe!!! They tasted wonderful and I love that it makes a big batch. The recipe said a yield of 3-4 dozen but I got 94 cookies (almost 8 doz!) and they were decent sized cookies too! I baked about 2 dozen now and threw the rest of the rolled dough in the freezer for fresh chocolate chip cookies any time I need it. So chewy and good!!
Oh, I also did one change... I did 1/2 white flour and 1/2 whole wheat. You couldn't really tell and they turned out well.

This made a lot of dough, so I baked half of it one night, and then the other half the next night. Great dessert!

These came out perfect even though I used whole wheat flour and turbinado. Super soft, delicious, and a lovely shade of brown. =)

These are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever baked. We make huge cookies, about 4 dozen, and cook for about 20 minutes. The recipe never fails--even when i switched to my own ground wheat.
