  2. On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by level teaspoonfuls or #70 cookie/ice cream scoop about 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake 10 to 11 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
Tips
  • Making these cookies will go a lot faster if you use a cookie/ice cream scoop. Level off the cookie dough in the scoop on the edge of the bowl.
  • Make Four-Chip Cookies by using 1 cup each semisweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, white vanilla baking chips and butterscotch chips in place of 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips and the chocolate candies.
