    YUCK!

    Sarah Durall from Illionis

    If I could give this recipe 0 stars I would. The cookies are not at all sweet and honestly the flavor is not at all close to what the original tollhouse recipe tastes like. Back to looking for recipes! This one is a definite no!

    These were a waste of time and ingredients

    M Maryland from Maryland

    This came out as a powdery mess that wasn't even a little workable.

    Excellent!

    Stephanie Cone from USA

    I made these for a party and they were a huge hit. I used regular-sized chocolate chips and it worked fine, you just use less of them. Awesome recipe!

    Mini Chip Cut-Out Cookies

    Joanne Littleton from Woodhaven, MI

    Since my husband's birthday is Valentine's Day, my youngest son makes these, places them in a heart shaped tin with a homemade card attached. Then the 2 of them will eat cookies together all day long.

    Yum!

    Christie Weist from Reading/PA

    I love these cookies. I love the little chocolate chips, they make it better, in my opinion. I like them better without the icing on top, too.

    LYNN BORG from Encinitas, CA

    I tried these a little early to see if they would be good for a Valentines party and they were wonderful. Easy to make, great taste and I can not wait to make them again in a few weeks. I used dark and white chocolate piping on them to change it up a little!

    valentine success

    rae gorman-devlin from MAYS LANDING, NJ

    I wanted to make something different and special for Valentine's Day. My family, however, always prefers choc chip. These cookies were so pretty when decorated, different than the usual choc chip, yet everyone was still pleased. Will make and decorate again for other holidays.

    Delicious

    Marsha L. Kiester from KIMMELL, IN

    I was plesantly suprised by the wonderful results of this easy recipe. Made them for my daughters birthday, which is the day before Valentines. They were a hit. Didn't have enough mini-chips to drizzle the chocolate on top of the frosting, but they are just fine with just frosting. I used two silicone sheets to roll the dough between and they worked just as well as wax paper. Will plan on making this recipe again soon.

    these were probably the best chocolate chip cookie-type I've every tasted. And they were fun to make with my 9-year-old. They're very special cookies that'll I'll probably start making for every Valentine's Day from here on.

    I used this as a valentine cookie cut out recipe and didn't use the morsels, but instead added red sugar in the middle using a smaller heart cookie cutter. Looked really pretty after baking it and people enjoyed eating them!

    Mini Chip Cut-out Cookies

    Lisa Gram from Akron, OH

    I used 1/2 cup less morsels in recipe because it seemed too rich and they turned out great.I thought these cookies where a little dry but tasty. I prefer my mothers sugar cookie recipe better because the cookies are soft, moist and lighter. If you like drier cookies this is the recipe for you!

    Mini Chip Cookies

    Anita Benson from JARRETTSVILLE, MD

    I tried this recipe for our office Valentine celebration. It was the rave of the party! Everyone asked if they were hard to make and when I told them they were easy they asked for the recipe. I love that there is no mess because the dough is rolled between the waxed paper. Thank you again for this wonderful recipe.
