“This is based on a recipe from BH&G's New Cook Book, third printing in 1990. I was surprised that I couldn't find this recipe posted here, although there is a similar one, also from BH&G. Before joining 'Zaar, this has been my go-to recipe when I feel like whipping up a batch of chocolate chip cookies and I prefer it to the recipes printed on the bag of chips. I only make one change, which I noted next to the butter ingredient, in order to keep the ingredients the same as the original.”
