Don't bother thinking about the fat content, because you'll eat them anyway! These became "Rochelle's" cookies because she is the oldest child, and was the first of the kids to start baking. I believe this is a Betty Crocker recipe, but my family knows them as "Rochelle's" because she made them so often and so well.

Very good cookie. Thin, but not crisp and still considerably chewey. Nice, flat choc chip cookie, and no prob with the bottom falling off, as I usually experience with a thinner cookie. Yum, yum. Thanks a bunch.
fantastic cookies! i too used double the butter in place of shortening. i also used about 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips. amazing!
