These were good but got a little too crisp.

I thought these were really good so I'm not sure what I might have done differently as I think I followed the recipe exactly. I did use a little less pecans because I only had 4 ounces. The cookies turned out fine and I thought they had good flavor. I baked them for 13-15 minutes. The first batch was definitely closer to 15 but as the oven stayed hot they needed a little less time.

I thought these were ok but nothing spectacular.

"Famous Amos" was on a talk show many years ago and basically said that his recipe was the Toll House Cookie recipe -- right off the bag of chocolate chips.

This recipe doesn't work for me AT ALL! I follow the recipe carefully and it didn't work.. I does it twice... The first time, too sweet and too hard... The second time, still sweet although I've cut down the sugar and too soft...

4 cups is definitely enough! If anyone has tried Famous Amos cookies before, you'll know that it's not supposed to have too much flour in it.

This recipe worked great for me - almost exactly like the real thing!

this recipe is the greatest. BUT... it needs a little work. you need 5 cups of flour (four is nowwhere near enough), and you only cook it for 12 minutes (15 and you have charcoal). but as for the flavor it is the best. it may look odd when you first start but just keep going.
