    this is the best choc chip cookie ever!! besides famous amos of course. according to the previous reviews, i've made a few variations: 1/4 cup butter in total (no shortening needed), 2/3 total amt of sugars added (the choc chips are sufficient to make the cookies sweet!) and a few more drops of vanilla. the outcome? MmMMMmmm.... definitely 5 stars!!  -  08 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was looking for a choc chip cookie recipe with less butter than usual. I used butter in place of shortening and margarine (hey, it was still half of most other recipes!). These cookies look a little different - more puffy and they don't spread as much as chocolate chip cookies usually do, but they are a great texture with a wonderful, vanilla/buttery flavour.  -  22 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My husband enjoyed these very much. Chocolate chip cookies are his favorite and his egg allergy makes finding good cookie recipes a challenge. This came out very similar to my regular eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe (basically the toll house recipe using egg replacers). They came out lighter in color and took a couple more minutes than the baking time in the recipe indicated. The only change I made was using non-fat vanilla yogurt because I didn't have plain. I only used 1 tsp of vanilla extract because of this. Out of the oven, they were delicious -- a little crisp on the surface and soft and chewy inside. They didn't flatten as they cooked and remined domed though they did spread a bit. I look forward to seeing how they taste in a few days (a problem I've had with my eggless cookie recipes is that they fail to stay moist after a couple days).  -  20 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
