Followed this recipe except I used margarine instead of butter as that's what I had on hand. The first batch didn't come out right. They didn't spread out much so I just had "cookie balls". Which is fine but I like a flatter cookie. I flattened the second batch with my hands before baking and they came out much better. I would also add, the secret to softer cookies is in the timing. For a softer, chewier cookie, bake them for less time and for a crispier cookie, bake them for longer. Leaving the cookies on the cookie sheet for five minutes before transferring to a cooling rack will also help with the consistency of the cookie.
