Choco Chip Cookies~ with Splenda/Splenda brown sugar blend

(originally made 9/2008)

My dad was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes last year, and has really struggled with giving up sweets.    He does cold turkey for a while, then binges and sends his readings through the roof.   I've been trying to make him versions of his old favorites with Splenda/Brown Sugar Splenda.    This is my second choc chip cookie recipe to try, the first were awful.     This came from the splenda site, and they are still a bit "pillowy" instead of chewy, next time I may try a different type of flour.   I only got 2 dozen with the switched out brown sugar.   The NI below is for the recipe as written.
