We all but inhaled these delectable delights today! Most of the cookies I bake are chocolate based, so this was a rare treat and my family was thrilled with the results. I used real butter, chilled the dough for a full hour and decided to not use a fork to smash them down. They were nicely shaped, didn't spread and came out so chewy inside with a crisp outside. I will definitely make these again! MERP'd for my adopted PAC baby in Spring '11.

  10. Additional Hint; I used Parkay Tub margarine and orange flavored cranberries. It gave the cookies a hint of orange flavor. Cranberries come in different flavors from Ocean Spray so these cookies can take on yummy results.
  11. I also did not chill the dough and used a medium cookie scoop and I did press them with a fork dipped in sugar. These cookies do spread so make sure they are at least 2 inches apart. They were a hit with my family.
