This is a very easy, very forgiving cookie.
It is simple and tastes great.
I get compliments left and right when I make these.
Also, this is the ONLY chocolate cookie recipe I use.
I do not stray because this is truly the best!

Lovely! I think it's a great idea to put the extra chocolate chips on top right before baking. Makes them look so professional!

Thanks. It really makes a difference in appearance.

this is very similar to a recipe I got from a pbs cooking show, only they browned the melted butter for about 2-3 minutes before adding it to the sugar. When I tried their recipe the browned butter gave a slightly nutty flavor to the cookies which I thought were great, you should give that a try and see if you like it

I will have to try it with browned butter, if it adds a nutty flavor that is something that really works for those with nut allergies :)
Are you sure it should be 1 tablespoon vanilla?
That seems like a lot.

It is 1 tablespoon vanilla extract and is not overpowering at all. The taste is great!
