Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I never get sick of trying new chocolate chip cookie recipes.  When I saw this one had 4,817 reviews with an average of 4 1/2 stars out of 5 over at All Recipes, I decided they must be amazing, right?  I also saw these over at Sing For Your Supper and her pictures were enough to convince me to make them.  The only difference was All Recipes used 3/4 cup butter and Sing For Your Supper used 1 cup butter.  I went with the 3/4 cup butter and mine ended up very flat?  I even tried chilling the dough overnight and they still ended up flat, but it was okay because they tasted SO YUMMY.  I couldn't resist them and ate way too many.  They are chewy, extremely delicious and won't last long, so give them a try!
