  1. Chocolate chip cookies are my weakness. I may just have to whip up a batch this afternoon. Yours look so yummy!!

  2. Look Wonderful! Happy weekend!

  3. I made a batch this afternoon and the family devoured them after dinner!

    It was worth turning on the oven on a hot day!

    Thank you!

  4. Gosh, you guys are making me have to run extra blocks in the morning!

    I'm so hooked on this blog. My hubby says he's going to start a mennonite boys blog about building stuff. I say that's pretty sexist!! :)

  5. Kathy, do you truly use margarine or do you use butter? I wonder if that makes a difference in a chewy cookie. I have gone completely away from baking margarine for a few years, because of trans fat. Just curious what you use.

  6. HI Lori, I know what you are saying about Margarine. I do use it still in some of my cookies. I also have several other recipes where butter changes the taste so much that I stick to margarine. They will taste great with either, but I'm sure the texture will be slightly different using butter.....try it....let me know. Kathy

  7. How many cookies are in this batch? We are making cookies for a youth group event of approx 20 people.
