What I Did: I converted cocoa (at the advice of Frugal Living blog) in lieu of chocolate chips since I didn’t have any on hand. My conversion accidentally used three times the sugar and shortening that was required. Math is hard.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Next time I’ll run to the store instead of trying substitutes. My cookie pancakes could run a small diesel engine and ended up in the trash.

    I’ve had this happen to me before too – conversion and substitution not working. But these cookies look good enough to try again.

    I have successfully made these. They were good but time consuming and expensive.
