That is a good recipe.

I like the Neiman-Marcus recipe. Have you ever tried it?

I guess its a matter of personal taste, as always. I really, really love one of the KA's choc. chip cookie recipes, and it is the one that gets the most requests when I am baking.

Neiman-Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 Lb Unsalted Butter - softened
2 C Sugar
2 C Light Brown Sugar
4 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla
5 C Oatmeal
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Baking Soda
4 C Sifted Flour
1 tsp Salt
24 Oz Chocolate Chips
8 Oz Milk Chocolate, grated (Grates more easily if frozen)
3 C Chopped Walnuts

Cream the butter and sugars together.

Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.

Blend the oatmeal to a fine powder in a blender or food processor. Combine with the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Combine this mixture with the previous mixture.

Add in the chocolates and the nuts.

Place two inches apart on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 13 minutes at 375 F

For best results, the dough should be chilled for 30 minutes before starting and kept in the refrigerator between uses.

The cookie sheets should go in the freezer between trips to the oven.

Makes approximately 112 cookies

if you want soft batch chocolate chip cookies, make the toll house recipe and add 1 package jello vanilla pudding mix. they will stay soft, and the flavor is excellent.

Do you substitute the pudding mix for something else, or just add it in on top of the rest? I'm always interested in tips for softer cookies!

I definitely would like to second that inquiry; that addition sounds pretty interesting.

I quit making my own chocolate chip cookies a long time ago. It seems that, although the recipe says "makes six dozen cookies", there would only be about a dozen in the cookie jar.
