These cookies didn't come out too great, but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt because I used all butter instead of margarine. Came out kind of like shortbread cookies, stayed round and didn't flatten on the cookie sheet.

This recipe baffles me a little. Let me start by saying that I had lost my favorite chocoloate chip cookie recipe that I had used for the last 10 years (you would think I would know it by heart!)and so I decided to search to find a recipe that seemed close and then throw in my secret ingredient from my former favorite....Graham Cracker crumbs. In this recipe you used 2 cups flour and 2 cups graham cracker crumbs instead of all flour. Also, it called for 1 cup butter not the split between margarine. So in my first batch (because I alway triple or quadruple and freeze some)I did my little graham cracker trick, used all butter, and added m&m's with my chocolate chips and they were really good. I would recommend this trying this...In my second batch I stuck more to the recipe by using all flour, but used all butter and threw in some nuts. It was then that I saw the very crumbly, dry dough...but I pushed on...the cookies did not flatten, as a matter of fact they almost stayed in the original ball so I would recommend doing the step where you flatten them a bit. They are good, but reminded me a bit of a shortbread cookie with chocolate chips. It could also have something to do with the fact that I tend to cram my cookies with lots of extras like nuts, extra chips, and m&m's and the dry dough maybe isn't the best for doing that. All in all, my husband really liked them and they are good...just a little diferent than a toll house...

Really good! Great taste. The dough was a bit crumbly but if you stick with it, the cookies come out really nice.

Talk about hard to make! First the dough turned out all crumbly and extremely dry! Tried first batch as per recipe, and it was so bad, had to throw out cookies. Then adde some oil and water to get pliable. Then baked and the cookies were like powder - still crumbly, dry, and little flavour! Definite will not make again!!

I feel like I've tasted my fair share of good cookies; my grandma is a baking queen. These cookies stood up against all the years of wonderful cookies and I will, and have already, recommended them to friends. Not only were these cookies delicious, they were easy to make and used mostly ingredients I already had around. I also think this recipe would be good to make with children (with supervision, of course.)**Note: I used all margarine because I didn't have any butter, and they turned out just fine.**

I rated this 5 stars because I know it would've been better if I made with 1/2 margarine but didn't have any so I made them with all butter. Otherwise, I really liked their thickness and they taste very good! Thank you for sharing this great recipe!

My husband has requested that I only use this recipe from now on. We love the fact that this cookie stays soft.
