Chocolate Chip Cookies – small batch

“I came up with this recipe myself,” writes Bethany Thayer of Troutville, Virginia. “After trying several low-fat chocolate chip cookie recipes that were puffy and cake-like, I experimented some and came up with these.” Good-for-you walnuts give them a great crunch, too.

    I should have read the list of ingredients first. These are definitely not a small batch cookie! Even using an ice cream scooper, the recipe made nearly four dozen. They are very smooth and more puffy than a traditional chocolate chip cookie, but flavor is good.
