    The cookies tasted like flour cookies. Not sweet and way too many white chips for such a small recipe. Also, it's supposed to make 48 cookies, and it made 22. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Try the recipe on the back of the Nestle Toll House white chip bag!  -  27 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The other reviews are right there is something wrong with this recipie. I added an extra egg and 1/3 cup of milk in order to make it a texture that I could mix the nuts and chips into. Also, I rolled the dough and flatted before cooking as the drop cookies were ugly. The cookies were tasty if you like cake-like cookies.  -  04 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was very disappointed - had to throw the entire batch out. We followed the recipe exactly and they came out as super dry and crumbly. Almost as if they needed more butter or another egg. I ended up using the stand by Toll House recipe and substituting white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Yum!!  -  23 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
