Semisweet Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Updated on February 27, 2013
4 stars from 4 ratings of Semisweet Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies. I guess we all have these childhood memories of walking home from school and smelling the chocolate chip cookies our mom was baking. Maybe that’s one of the reasons it's an all-time favorite besides its delicious taste.

      You could definitely replace the chocolate chips with M&M Marie. Actually that would make an interesting combination. Try it and let me know how it turns out.

      This looks like such a great recipe! I wonder if I could replace the chocolate chips with M & M's.

      When your mouse cursor goes over the star DzyMsLizzy, it says "view favourites, feeds and history". Using "Alt" and "C" keys simultaneously pops up the favorite too.

      Oh, the star. Thank you! I did not realize that, as they did not think to label or explain it..

      I use the regular Google bookmark. It's a star icon on the top right corner of the page.

      I have not been able to find a bookmark utility on Google Chrome...right clicking on the page does not bring up a menu to save anywhere than as a webpage on your computer... :-(

      Thank you for stopping by DIYmommy and livingsta. This is one cookie worth gaining few ounces over DIYmommy!! I am trying to eat healthier this year too but cannot resist the once in a while temptation :).

      These look delectable. My friends and family can attest to the fact that I'm a bit of a glutton for chocolate. Though I have resolved to eat healthier in 2013, I may just have to make a little room for this recipe! Thanks for the great article!

      I never used the HP bookmark and always use the Google bookmark to bookmark my pages. But then twice my computer crashed and I lost all my bookmarks. In a way I was relieved because it was getting out of hand. Anyhow, thank you for your comments and I hope your cookies turn out good.

      These sound great...and I really miss the 'bookmark' feature that HP took away from us... :-( otherwise, I'd bookmark this in a heartbeat...

      I must try them out, though...I've been having troubles with my old recipe (the one on the bag of choc. chips), not working anymore..I think they changed it...

      I'll have to come back on a different browser that lets me bookmark/add to faves...Google doesn't seem to have that option.

      Voted up, interesting, useful and starred!
