Ingredients

  • 1 cup 80% fat margarine (100 calories per tablespoon)

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 2 ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 12 ounce package (2 cups) semisweet chocolate pieces or miniature candy-coated semisweet chocolate pieces

  • 1 ½ cup chopped walnuts, pecans, or hazelnuts (filberts), toasted if desired (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl beat margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until mixture is combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Stir in chocolate pieces and, if desired, nuts.

  2. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 9 minutes or until edges are just light brown. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; cool completely.
