I got this recipe from Anna at cookiemadness.net, and everyone that tried them, including me who doesn't even LIKE chocolate chip cookies, said that they were amazing. I'm actually going to make another batch tomorrow. This is definitely going to be my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe from now on!
Chocolate Chip Cookies Made With Oil
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (more chocolate to compensate for the missing butter!)
(I used milk chocolate instead of the usual semi-sweet)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Stir together flour, soda and salt. Set aside.
Whisk together both types of sugar, oil, egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture to oil mixture and stir just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips
Using a tablespoon measure, scoop up dough and shape into tight rounds of about ¾ to 1 inch. Space them about 2 inches apart on two ungreased cookie sheets. The mounds should be bursting with chips. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.
Makes about 2 dozen
*Using a tablespoon as a scooper was a great idea, and if the dough starts sticking, just spray it with some PAM
