I used butter flavored Crisco instead of margarine and I added an extra tsp, Almond Extract instead of Vanilla, Added refined baker's sugar about 1/4 c and just a handful more golden brown sugar (the recipe wasn't sweet enough for my tastes) and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Ok, so they probably aren't very light any more, but what the heck, it's Christmas!!
Here are the pics. Our friend Audrey came over to bake with us. She brought an apron for Ethan, so we all had them on. Ethan was asleep for most of the baking, but we did get a few pics while he was awake and he of course got to be the official taste tester!
