  1. The cookies look delish!!!
    I love the smell of the kitchen when baking choc chip cookies.

  2. Do you really use shortening? What kind? Could you use becel instead?

  3. I do use shortening. Have never tried margarine but I am not sure it would work. If you wanted a buttery flavour you could use the shortening that tastes like butter.

  4. Boy am I glad you don't live nearby, or I would be forced to come over and help you out. My son loved these so much when he was little that I'll never forget going to kiss him goodnight and noticing that he had stacked a dozen of them under his pillow! He also had telltale chocolate marks around his little mouth.

  5. LOL! Kids do the cutest things! Mine used to take them to school and sell them!

  6. ummm I hope you are bringing some of these to Thanksgiving!! Who is this batch for? No fair if they are for one of the boys and I don't get any!!
