I have only used imitation vanilla when making chocolate chip cookies. Yes, and it will make little difference in the final product, since the main flavor of Chocolate Chip Cookies comes from a combination of ingredients, including brown sugar, butter and Chocolate Chips. Using high quality pure vanilla is more important when it's the primary flavoring, like vanilla ice cream or custard.
