myFresha-licious: Chocolate Chip Cookies with Oil

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Oil

I’ve made several chocolate chip cookies, however, I’ve been using butter for the fat ingredients.  This time I made use of oil.  I find it more convenient to use oil, the liquid flowing fat than using fat in its solid state.  Using butter, I still have to wait for it to soften before I can use it. It takes time.

And my cookies still looked awful.  I saw my tukayo’s chocolate chip cookies and they look yummy and gorgeous and she was just using a spoon and her bare hands to make those beautiful creations.  I suddenly felt ashamed of myself for buying an expensive ice cream scoop using my cookie baking as a justification to spend on it.  Well, I’m making ice cream so I really need that ice cream scoop, don’t I. That was supposed to remove that guilt feeling I have for the ice cream scoop 🙂

Oh well, I’ll try what Sharon Rimando is doing with her cookies, scooping out the dough using a spoon and forming it into a ball by hand then flattening them on the pan.  I’ll do that next time 🙂 

For now, try this recipe.
