The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
Normally I try to make a recipe three times before rating it. I've baked five batches of these excellent cookies. Because they're made with oil rather than shortening, butter or margarine the texture is different but every bit as good. Cookies made with shortening, margaine or butter tend to have crispy or crumbly edges, but when baked properly, these crisp up nicely on the edges also. For those with cholesterol, saturated fat or trnas-fats issues, this recipe is a great find. You are giving up nothing with these cookies. The flavor is excellent, and the texture very satisfying, and the batter freezes well. I would suggest making a batch but baking just one tray to see how they turn out in YOUR oven, because as we all know, the recipe numbers for temperature and length of baking time vary with our own particular oven. Mine was spot-on, but cookies baked on the lower rack burned a little while upper rack cookies were perfection. I add walnuts, but I assume you can add anything you want, craisins, raisins, coconut, any kind of nut. You can even leave out the chocolate. But who'd be crazy enough to do that?

Crisp Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2005
These cookies are DANGEROUS. As close to a perfect recipe as any I've found, wonderfully crisp along the edges, with a satisfying chewy middle thanks to the coconut. The second time I made them I increased the oatmeal to a full cup. To avoid saturated fat and trans fat I substituted Canola Harvest 0 Trans Fat margarine for shortening [Crisco 0 Tans Fat PER SERVING Shortening actually has a lot of trans fats...they get around it by increasing the claimed serving size, sqeaking by the FDA rule], and for an increased burst of flavor when the cookie first touches your tongue, I greased the cookie sheet with butter. This adds just a minimal amount of saturated fat/cholesterol, but a lot of flavor. I have also made this recipe adding walnuts and cranberries...delicious, but still full of healthful stuff to "offset" the cookie's decadence.
