I made this recipe but I used 1 cup of margarine instead, the cookie dough was super crumbly after mixing so I put margarine on my hands and scooped it up forming a log, plastic wrapped it and tossed it in the fridge for an hour, when I sliced the dough to form the balls, it was hard dough, like it feels already cooked lol but when I put them in the oven for 350f for 11 minutes, WOW they came out soft and delicious, so sugary and ciniminimininy!!!!! love this easy simple delish recipie!!

This is a keeper. Delicious. A little crunch but not at all hard. Excellent taste. Just HAD to put in vanilla. Probably would have been fine without but I'm compelled.. Put a teaspoon in per batch. I doubled the batch. You'll love these I'm sure. Oh, also used Land O Lakes margarine instead of butter.
