    Some suggestions for this recipe: You can subsitute 1/2 white sugar for brown sugar which makes them tastier! Use unsalted butter instead of butter. Which gives you the real great taste of the cookie without tasting too buttery. You can add another 1/2 cup of flour, to make the dough stay in shape better and not too sweet for those who does not like it too sweet. You can bake it longer for more crispy cookies and shorter for crispy edges and chewy middles!!  -  31 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    If you're looking for a crispy cookie, this recipe is a very good choice. The texture is perfect, smooth and not too crispy but not soft either. I have tried over 40 CC cookie recipes, and this is one of the few chocolate chip cookie recipes that I am really pleased with. However, I would omit the salt and I used 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup light brown sugar.  -  01 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Nice cookie -- much too hard (the next day) for my taste, though. When I read "crisp" I thought of a thin crispy wafer kind of thing, but this was much more like a Chips Ahoy kind of chunky thing.  -  12 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
