“This is the recipe that we use at my school cafeteria for chocolate chip cookies. They must be the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! If you don't have margarine or don't like it, then just use butter (softened) instead.”
5 dozen cookies

  2. In a mixing bowl, sift together the flours and baking powder. Set aside.
