chowhound's crispy chocolate chip cookies

i made half the recipe but was only able to make 11-12 cookies. not half of 48
i think i added too much brown sugar because it caramelized around the edges of the cookie. YUM. :)
i used belgian chocolate chips again
i skipped the nutella.
i found having melted butter on hand makes it easier to spoon the 1 table spoons of dough onto the sheet.
