Chocolate Chip Cookies III *

This chocolate chip cookie recipe ends the "real butter or margarine" debate for using in baking.
Butter wins by a LANDSLIDE.
I used margarine for this recipe, which came from a box of Blue Bonnet.
It looked like the recipe started out well, melting and cooling of the margarine, which I loved the outcome of the Chocolate Chip Cookie II when the recipe called for that. But Not so good.
The dough was creamy, which meant I had to drop it onto the baking sheet, which is fine.
But then when the cookie baked, the dough consumed the chocolate chips and you can barely see them.
They were thick, harder and drier than I like. I just didn't like the flavor.
The box calls the recipe "America's Classic No-Fail Chocolate Chip Cookie" but for me, it was a fail.
Perhaps, I'm just too picky?
