First of all, if you are making these up here in Flag, you will have to adjust the recipe for high altitude. I have a forumla that I can post or email you for that. Always use real butter. Baker's Secret makes "bakers sugar" that is a bit finer and works well in cookies. Use a good name brand peanut butter. I use Jiff (yep, choosey mothers ). Also never skimp on the vanilla, use the best you can.
Pllleeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Plse do whenever you get the chance. Face it, if I made peanutbutter & chocolate chip cookies down here
in Dust Bowl Hell - and they came out too flat
, one shudders to think the unsuccessful mess I'd create trying to make ANYthing baking-wise w/the altitude factor involved
