Wow! I really couldn't tell the difference between these cookies and the regular (i.e. full fat) ones! They are crispy outside and chewy inside--just the way I like them. I think they are better than Mrs. Field's, and also the Award winning chocolate chip cookie recipe on this site (the one that uses instant pudding mix)...a lot less greasy and definitely not sickeningly sweet. =D I substituted butter flavored crisco for butter because crisco is supposed to make it spread less (there's no water content in crisco, unlike butter). The dough turned out a bit sticky, but the cookies turned out fabulous. I was scared initially because they looked really puffed up when I took them out of the oven, but after a while they deflated and looked just like the kind in bakeries. I was gonna try white chocolate chips, but I think it will be way too sweet when combined with this dough. So semi-sweet chocolate chips are the best choice...I used Ghiradelli's and they tasted wonderful. P.S. I baked these at 2 am in the morning after reading the reviews, and even though I am on a diet, I just couldn't resist eating a couple of them! THE BEST recipe and a definite keeper!
