This is a wonderful recipe!!! We've already made them three times and they are a hit with the kids!! I was looking for a cookie made with oil, to save on the cost of butter, and I bake a lot with whole wheat, so that was a plus, though they taste great with white flour too. I've made a couple of variations of these cookies. One was to add 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon--this made them almost taste like snickerdoodles. Another time we substituted lemon extract for the vanilla--yummy!! Not sure what we'll try next. I did find that while the dough was easy to work with, it was a little too sticky to roll into balls by hand. I ended up using a cookie scoop that I dipped into water occassionally to keep the dough from sticking. These were a real winner and will made in our home regularly. Thanks for the great recipe!!
UPDATE--Our latest variation was to substitute 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder for 1/2 cup of the flour and adding 3 drops of peppermint oil. They were delicious!! Now what will we think of next...
We did not have a good experience with these cookies. We used whole white wheat flour, which should give them more of a white flour cookie flavor. They weren't totally inedible, but they tasted salty or like there was too much baking powder. We thought we made a mistake and tried again, but it was still not good. We used small scoops and it was not nearly enough time to cook the cookie through. I'd keep looking for another recipe. Sorry!
I made this cookies just to try them out, they came out perfectly and my family just adored them!! They didn't last! I wish I had doubled the recipe, oh well, I'll just do them again. thnx for the recipe :)
I had the midnight munchies and decided to try this recipe out and eat it raw. When I tried all i could taste was the wheat flour. Mabye I had to use normal white flour but the cookie dough I made tasted horrible.
The ONLY reason I am giving this 2 stars is because I really liked the consistancy. I hate wasting food, but there was no getting around how terrible these were.
These were pretty awful...not completely inedible, but close.
I love these cookies! They're the only ones that turn out well if I replace the oil with applesauce. They're really fluffy and definitely more chewy than crispy, but I love them anyways. Next time I'm trying them with Splenda!
Trapped inside in "Snowmageddon" (a huge MN blizzard) I needed something to do, and with no butter and limited groceries on hand, i found this recipe! Minor changes i made were white flour (didnt have the wheat) and coconut oil instead of vegetable oil, and coconut extract instead of vanilla! YUM!!! The dough itself was worth five stars, and once baked, a little dry, but good with coffee on a cold snowy day! Thanks for the recipe! i WILL make these again!!!
