“This is the recipe from the back of the Nestle chocolate chip bag but instead of butter I use vegetable shortening and I leave out the nuts which I think makes the cookies taste better. For a twist on these, substitute whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour and Splenda for the granulated sugar.(The wheat and the Splenda will make the cookies flatter rather than puffier and they will also have a different texture than regular chocolate chip cookies)”
60 cookies
