Good adaptable cookie to use as a mini chocolate chip cookie. I subbed a healthy omega baking spread for the shortening and used the same measures on everything else. I skipped the nuts too, and left the chips un-melted. When I baked them, I cut the very chilled dough with a sharp knife, reshaped any cookies with my fingers that had gotten warped, and baked as indicated. Very tasty little gems!
