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.
