      These were so unusual for a chocolate chip cookie. They were pretty crumbly, and I'm not sure I liked that too much. However, the flavor was good. I made them as posted except used regular sized chocolate chips instead of miniature. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag.

      Wow! When I looked at these ingredients I had my doubts. But now I like them so much I've made two batches already! These were a little crumbly when they first came out of the oven, but once cooled they were delicious! I flattened them before cooking, and found them better. I also skipped the powdered sugar at the end. To give more stability I cooked them the second time with half butter and half margarine. Thanks for a real keeper!
