   chocolate pieces into batter. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 3 inches apart
   onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with floured bottom of
   glass.  Bake in 375 F oven 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool
   on wire rack. Store in tightly covered container. Makes about 2-3 dozen.

   [I made these last night to pack for my trip to Reno.  Whatever you do,
   don't use creamy peanut butter!  With just 1/2 cup nut butter mixed with 2
   cups flour, the nut taste gets kind of lost. I used almond butter; we also
   used Cantbelieveitsnotbutter for the margarine. Don't round those Tbspfulls
   too high, as these cookies wind up a bit on the large size. I also forgot
   about flattening them out; oh well... What I have are chocolate chip
   cookies (mini-chips), with a faint almond flavor.]
