This was a very good recipe.. I'm not the 5-star person unless something is to die for, so 4 stars is a very good rating for me. I used margarine instead of butter and that was fine.. didn't soften, I just put it in the microwave for 30 seconds then added the sugar(s)---it was easy and it turned out good. I didn't use the nuts and only had 3/4 of the chocolate chips but they still turned out nice.. the amount recommended would probably be best though, some cookies were lacking in amount (due to me). I also added about 2 tsp of milk to the dough to make it easier to work with (hand mixing) and this was fine (and did make it a lot easier). I left the first batch in for 11 min b/c i was distracted which made the bottoms dark/black but they still tasted fine. The 2nd batch I was a lot more attentive and took it out at around 8 min and they were spectacular! I lightly greased (w/ margarine) the pan for that batch and it worked well.. I'd recommend lightly greasing the pans. I would also recommend saving a few CC's to put on the top before they go into the oven to make sure the CC's are evenly distributed and look nice also. You want to cool them on the pan a bit before taking them off because they will be real soft at first. You can make about 6 more safely with left over dough from the recipe. They all turned out really soft and fluffy (I think the creaming helped), and delicious. One of my housemates exclaimed "No... YOU didn't make these!" lol.
