This afternoon we have D's history day team here working on their display. I didn't have any sweet treats, so I decided to bake them some cookies. I had no butter and no (regular) eggs. But I made due with olive oil and duck eggs. I don't think they could tell...or cared. They devoured a dozen cookies in 5 minutes flat!
Ingredients makes approximately 30 cookies
- 2 ½ C flour
- ½ t salt
- 1 t baking soda
- ¼ C olive oil
- 1 t vanilla extract or vanilla paste
- ¾ C organic granulated sugar
- ¾ C organic brown sugar
- 2 eggs, 3 if small (I used 2 large duck eggs)
- 1 to 2 T milk (I used almond milk)
- 2 C semisweet chocolate chunks
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda together in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
Combine sugars, vanilla, and olive oil together in a large mixing bowl. Beat in the eggs one a time. Gradually beat in the flour mixture, then add in 1 T milk to make the dough a bit firmer; you can add a second tablespoon if you feel the dough is too dry.
Use a small (Tablespoon) scoop to place dough on parchment or silicone mat-lined baking sheets.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly golden and set. Move cookie sheet to a wire rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes before moving. You can move them to a wire rack and let them cool completely or eat them warm. You can guess what the kids did!
