I have been experimenting with chocolate chip cookie recipes for a couple years now, trying to make one that has less fat and less sugar than most recipes I've seen and tried. My goal has been to create a cookie recipe that is delicious and healthier for my two daughters. The name "Half and Half" is for half the butter, half the sugar and for half chocolate chips and half white chocolate chips. I hope that you enjoy these soft and yummy cookies with your family.
