  1. I doubled this recipe and had a problem with them not spreading (they cooked in lump formation). I added a few T butter-flavored shortening to the (very stiff) batter, and lightly pressed down on the dough balls before baking. Perfect! Delicious! Very much like a Mrs. Field's Coco-Mac cookie. Next time, I will try using only 2 cups of flour to see if this will improve the spread situation...if not, the shortening did the trick nicely. It's a keeper.
