  1. Yes, Marsha, I am a bonafide chocolate lover, just like you! I am LOVING that you put a whole cup of chocolate chips in this recipe! What more could you really need in life? (Well, besides all of your other baked goodies). These cookies look like absolute perfection. That stack with the bite on top… must have taken true restraint to take just one bite and resist the rest! <–motivation to finish the shoot, amiright?? Pinning & sharing, of course! xoxo

  2. Hi There, I believe you may have doubled the flour by mistake. Just made them and turned out to be “cake” cookies. My boys will still eat them though :).

    • Hi Lucille! The flour is the correct amount. These cookies are meant to be soft and chewy, not cakey. Did you flatten them slightly before baking? You could also try using less flour, but 2 cups is the perfect amount for me 🙂
