    The cookies are awesome. The taste exaclty like Mrs. Fields. They do tend to thin out so make sure not to overbake. I also added 1/2 a cup more chips. These were so good I don't think I am going to share. Thanks for the recipe.  -  20 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    yes, very chewie. yes, lots of chocolate. but i do agree with some of the rest, way too sweet. i'm gonna try it again, but this time, i'll cut the sugar (white and brown) to maybe a half of what's suggested.  -  01 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
