I should have known from other reviews that I wouldn't like these... they are VERY cakey (I prefer flatter, chewier, crispier cookies), but I thought I could "fix" them by slightly altering the recipe. I used half butter half shortening, and half white half brown sugar, but I don't think that made a difference. They are very puffy and kept whatever shape they were put on the pan--they don't spread at all (my first batch came out in little balls because I used a cookie scoop, after that I tried flattening them a bit before putting them in the oven). I added extra cinnamon and nutmeg as previous reviewers suggested, but they still tasted bland to me. The only good thing about them was the chocolate chips! If you like cake-like cookies you'll probably like these, but they just weren't for me.
