Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies #Sponsored

The last time I stopped in at The Quail & Olive*, I picked up a bottle of their Butter Flavor Olive Oil because I was interested in trying the oil in some holiday baking. I don't know about you, but as soon as Halloween is over, my brain goes into overdrive on what kind of holiday cookies to bake. I have been making olive oil chocolate chip cookies for years because it's so much quicker than creaming together butter and sugar! This olive oil is a great way to still get that buttery flavor.

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup olive oil (I used the Butter Flavor Olive Oil from The Quail & Olive)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 2-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of flakey sea salt + more for sprinkling 
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • Also needed: cookie scoop, silicone mat, and baking sheet

Procedure

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. 

In a large mixing bowl, combine olive oil, vanilla, eggs, and brown sugar. Whisk until blended. Add flour, salt, and baking soda to bowl and mix until ingredients are completely moistened. 


Fold chocolate chips into the dough with a spatula.


Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or a sheet of parchment paper. Use a cookie scoop to scoop dough into balls.


Place scoops 1" apart on the baking sheet and place in the oven.


Bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to let cool. The cookies will firm as they cool.


Serve cookies immediately or let them cool completely and store in an airtight container.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
