Recipe by joanna.l.wilson
I've adapted this over time from multiple recipes. I wouldn't say these cookies are exactly good for you, but at least they don't have quite as much sugar in them as usual. I'm a sucker for a buttery taste, so I make them with butter and butter flavored shortening. But, they turn out pretty well with margarine instead. Also, depending on the climate I'm in, I don't always wind up using quite all of the flour, and cooking times vary. Any kind of chocolate chip will do for the recipe, I just happen to prefer the Kissables. Sometimes I swap out some of the chocolate for nuts.
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 1⁄2 cup shortening, butter flavored
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 cup Splenda sugar substitute
