Nestle Toll House Cookies

 My favorite cookie is and will always be Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie. Today I had to get my cookie fix and needed to double the recipe. Well, if I was going to share with family and friends one batch wouldn't be enough. So, I was making sure I had all the ingredients when I realized I was short 1 cup of butter, no problem I have made other cookies with shortening why not give it a try. What is the worse thing that could happen? Well, I love them! I will put this modified or should I called it Rhondified recipe in the Keeper's Pile. [slideshow]
