This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I've ever used. Everyone I've baked these for LOVES them. They are so buttery and just the right amount of sweet+salt (I use salted butter)

This is really a great chocolate chip recipe, I also used this once for my daughter's class gift project. They loved measuring. It fits perfectly!

I used only one stick of butter and 2 eggs. Came out great. I could not fit the last 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in the jar =( But told my friends to add it. They have been raving about this recipe and have asked for the recipe to make more. Like it

you have to pack the ingredients down. Usually when you measure out ingredients (except for brown sugar) they are fairly loose in the measuring cup (at least they are supposed to be). To fit them into the jar you have to pack each layer together. The flour can lose half its volume if you pack it down enough. Never had any trouble with this recipe.

A student gave me this in a jar 5 years ago, and I finally made it. Even after sitting 5 years, and at 8500 feet altitude, they were fantastic. keep giving this to teachers! (But simplify the direxns.. no real need to sift, fluff, etc. Just mix it together and go.)
