Danielle's Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these a couple of months ago.

Like LuAnn said, this recipe makes the most delicious cookie dough! A good portion of mine got eaten as dough as well.

I made them at night and it was too late to chill the dough if I was going to get to eat any. So I made some that night and then put the rest of the dough in the fridge. Both ways I made them (chilled and not chilled), the cookies spread quite a bit and were pretty flat. The chilled dough didn't spread as much, but they were still flat cookies.

I don't mind a flat cookie, but I didn't like that the cookies browned so much. Was that just my oven or is it the dough? If anyone else makes them, let me know if you had the same experience. I kept thinking they were burning but they didn't look set yet. Even though they were pretty brown, they stayed chewy, but I still didn't really like the flavor they got from being so browned.

I can't really say why, but I thought the cookies tasted better the day after I made them.

Overall, these were tasty, but this won't be my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. I might make it again some day, but these won't replace my favorite recipe.

I had some of LuAnn's first batch, so I can say they are yummy, but also not my favorite so far. I didn't get to try to any of the cookie dough, so I'm looking forward to making my own and trying it. :)

It's too bad yours turned out flat too. It's strange that it it keeps happening to people. I googled some tips on how to keep cookies from going flat, and I'll try them. If they works, I'll post the tips.

Mine browned, too. So I was confused about when they were done. I wonder if decreasing the butter would help.
