Great recipe--just what I was looking for. I made a few substitutions based on personal preference. I don't like to use Crisco, so I used only butter. Also, to reduce fat I almost always cut the amount of butter in half in cookies. This time I used slightly more than half a cup, which was a little bit more than half the total amount of fat called for. They came out wonderfully. Really tasty. I didn't actually count, but the recipe made at least 60 cookies, so I was glad I didn't double it. Thanks for a great recipe, Cindi.
