We started based on the original recipe, but also comparing it to the one on the chocolate chip bag. This recipe calls for about an extra cup of flour compared to the chocolate chip bag recipe. We found that our dough was just too dry, and added a half stick of butter to make it usable. We needed an extra 6-8min in the oven also. If we make it again, we will use a different chocolate chip cookie dough recipe, one that actually has flavor.
