They are nice cookies, but I think two points have to be made. Firstly, the recipe as posted forgets to tell you when to add chocolate chips! I added them after mixing the dough and it turned out ok. Also, I only got 7 Cookies out of it. Mine were large, so you could probably get 10, but you should double or triple this recipe to get a large batch of cookies.
