No subs use only butter. If desired you can coat them is sugar before baking. These are also great without the chocolate chips, chopped maraschino cherries can be used in place of the chocolate chips for the holidays.

I had this recipe and lost it. I am so glad I found it it's my children's favorite Christmas cookie.

I really, really WANT to like these. I was really looking forward to making them and I am pretty disappointed. It seemed like they were missing something. They definitely do have a melt-in-your-mouth quality about them, though...
