This cookie recipe replaces butter with olive oil and they taste amazing!  Not that i have anything against butter – I just like to mix things up and with this recipe, you won’t be missing anything.

Ingredients:

  • 1 C           all-purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp   Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp   Salt
  • 1/4 C      Lucini Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2/3 C     Brown Sugar (high quality makes a big difference)

  • 1/2 tsp  Vanilla
  • 1/2 C     Chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C     Chopped toasted almonds

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with foil, or silicone liners.  

In medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the olive oil and sugar with an electric mixer till creamy, about 3 minutes.  Beat in egg and vanilla until well blended, about 1 minute.

Stir in the flour mixture until just combined.  Stir in the chocolate chips and almonds until well distributed.  Drop by rounded tablespoons onto prepared cookies sheets, about 2 inches apart (makes 24 cookies).  Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until golden around the edges.

Remove from the oven and transfer the cookies onto wire racks to cool.
