We have two variations for you of popular Chocolate Chip Cookies. The first is extremely similar to the standard recipe using brown sugar substitute. The second uses only regular sugar substitute but also makes a very tasty chocolate chip cookie. Try them both!

Add 1/4-cup water to creamed mixture along with the flour mixture and mix at medium speed for one minute or until smooth. Add chocolate chips to dough and mix lightly. drop by tablespoonsful onto cookie sheets that have been lined with alumium foil or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Press down lightly with fingers dipped in cold water to form a circle about 2-inches across.

Bake at 375-degrees for about 12 minutes or until browned (the cookies won't be crisp unless they are browned). Remove cookies from hot cookie sheets to wire racks to cool to room temperate. Recipe yields 24 servings.

Variation: Chocolate Chip Bars

Instead of dropping dough onto cookie sheets, spread dough evenly in a jelly roll pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray, or greased with margarine. Bake at 375-degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly browned and the bars pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool to room temperature and cut.
