  1. Line broiler tray (without rack) with aluminum foil. Brush foil w/ a little oil or margarine & lightly flour it.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients in bowl.
  3. In a larger bowl, beat together egg and sugar. Add oil and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Add dry ingredients gradually into wet while mixing. Fold in choice of add-in.
  5. Let mixture rest 1/2 hour in the refrigerator.
  6. Preheat toaster oven to 350 degrees. (Toaster ovens heat up quickly.)
  7. Drop one rounded tablespoon of dough per cookie on prepared tray. If you have a small oven, you will need to bake in two batches, wiping and re-prepping the foil in the tray before the 2nd batch.
  8. Tent another piece of foil loosely over cookies so it doesn't touch them. Bake for 7 - 8 minutes, remove foil tent and bake another 3-1/2 minutes until lightly brown on top.
  9. Remove from tray and let cool about 6 minutes on toaster oven broiler rack (outside oven).
