Hi Renee, you can substitute margarine for the butter in equal amounts. Happy baking!

Can I use Land O Lakes Margarine instead of the butter as that's all I have?

This is the perfect chocolate chip cookie, no chocolate chip cookie recipe I have made has beat this one.

I've used this recipe many times now and it is absolutely the best. Whenever I make them everyone wants to know what bakery I bought them from and don't believe they are homemade.

I have used this recipe twice now and it is by far the best chocolate chip cookie recipe that I have ever came across! They come out perfect, just like the ones in the picture.

I've been looking a great chocolate chip recipe for a very long time. Well, I just made these cookies and this recipe is the best recipe I've found to date. These cookies are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. My search has stopped here.

This recipe is so easy AND AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS!!!! Anywahy, I LOVE this recipe, and this is going to be my all-time favorite and used future recipe…

I use this recipe for our Open House/Customer Appreciation every year. People rave about these cookies! There are never any left:) it is definitely a 5 star recipe! They are best using Land o Lakes though. My friend made them with store brand butter and she said they were not like mine. Also, sometimes people will blame the recipe when the issue is actually the mixing method or the oven. This recipe has never disappointed me, and I've been baking for over sixty years.

I was looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe that wasn't toll house, so I came across this recipe on the land o lakes box and just had to try it for a function at work. what I liked was the fact that it was such a large recipe 4 cups of flour. I thought perfect no need to double the recipe. Well they turned out to be the best chocolate recipe I ever tried.. this will be my go to recipe from now on. i think the land o lakes butter makes a big difference

Rating

Perfect!

Rating

Way too much flour never used 4 cups only if this recipe was doubled

Oh my gosh, these are delicious! I can't wait to try the variations. My suggestion is to mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl and then add gradually to butter/sugar mixture. You may have use your hands to mix the chocolate chips in and you definitely never want to overmix cookie dough; you may end up with tough cookies. I don't understand why some reviewers complained that this dough was dry; I thought it was perfect. Again, try using your hands to mix it, kneading it a little like bread dough. It will come together!
