Zander's Chocolate Chip Cookies

"These are our favorite! Chewy inside, crisp outside. I've tried lots of different recipes and this is my hybrid recipe. :-) Making these cookies is my three-year-old son, Zander's, favorite activity. He loves to help measure and play with his own ball of dough. I have made these healthier by substituting 1/2 cup of white sugar for Splenda and using half wheat flour with great results."

    These are delicious, chewy on the inside and crispy on the out..just the way I like chocolate chip cookies. I used a 250 gram packet of chocolate bits. Thanks for sharing.

    Mmm-Mmm Good! I substituted all the white sugar for Splenda and used half brown sugar/half Splenda brown sugar. I also used 1 1/4 wheat flour and 1 cup white. Next time I think I will try all wheat and more Splenda brown sugar. They were delicious and soft. My problem is I can't stop eating them! Don't be afraid to substitute-they didn't taste "healthy"!

    These cookies were great. My children absolutely loved them. One problem with cookies is that they tend to harden when they cool off, but not these...that is you have to follow the instruction in the recipe that tells you to somewhat undercook them. Thanks for a wonderful treat!
