I just love it when someone claims to have followed a recipe "perfectly" except they did things differently in three ways, and then gives the recipe a poor rating-(don't you?) For those who are...

Crunchy outside, gooey, chocolatey inside. Very good for chocolate lovers. Important to remember 1 stick of Crisco is 1 c. as opposed to 1 stick of margarine being 1/2 c. - perhaps this is why...

Delicious, super easy cookies. I substituted a stick of butter for the Crisco, and had no problems. They look just like the main picture! I also substituted butterscotch chips for the chocolate...

My neighbor brought these to a Christmas party last night and I asked for the recipe. She pointed me here to allrecipes. These are wonderful cookies and the thing that made her's even better was...
