Chocolate Chip Cookies with Avocado

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Avocado I read that when baking you can replace half or all of the butter with mashed avocado to make it a little healthier. I got out my favorite cookie recipe from my dad and tried it. I replaced half the butter. They were still very yummy and I couldn’t tell there was avocado in them.
