Cookie Sticks

Chocolate chip cookies. Would you agree that they are as American as apple pie? Or baseball? I would say yes, absolutely. While there are a few that don’t care for chocolate chip cookies, you are pretty much guaranteed to bring home an empty plate if you bring some to a get together or party. That’s where these cooke sticks went; to a pool party where they were quickly devoured, leaving me with an empty container. That works!

I’ll admit, I didn’t change anything in this recipe, but I was very tempted. This recipe used canola oil, which I thought was odd considering every other chocolate chip cookie I have ever made uses either butter or shortening, or a combination of those two. It’s not too often you hear of using oil. I found it on the Taste of Home website, but decided not to change anything and give it a whirl. I thought maybe the oil might play a part in making the cookies stand up once cut. Not sure if that was the case, I just know that everyone enjoyed them. :)

Cookie Sticks
adapted from Taste of Home

1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine the oil, sugars, egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to sugar mixture and mix well. Divide dough in half.

On a greased baking sheet, shape each portion into a 15-in. x 3-in. rectangle about 3 in. apart.

Sprinkle chocolate chips over dough; press lightly.

Bake at 375° for 6-7 minutes. (Bake for 8-9 minutes for crispier cookies.) Cool for 5 minutes.

Use a pizza cutter to cut each section into 4 large pieces to make them easy to transfer to cooling racks.

Use a serrated knife to cut the cooled sections into 1-in. strips.

    Oh, so pretty! I love cookie sticks–they take the "standing around and waiting for each batch to bake" out of cookie baking. Nice and easy, but still so rewarding!

    I like the idea of using oil, since we are bordering on high cholesterol. :(
    These sticks is quite the novel idea…grandkids will love them.

    My husband will love these. He likes to dunk cookies into coffee or milk. This will go into a glass or cup better than the round cookies. Will be trying them soon!

    Sarah@Buttered Up says:

    Whaaa?!! I've never seen these before. Cool idea. Does the taste of the oil come out excessively though? I made these muffins recently that tasted of oil and sucked!

  56. 56
    Amanda says:

    Hi Sarah. I thought they did have a hint of oil flavor yes. They were all eaten up, but I think if I did them again I would sub some of the oil with butter or shortening.

    "1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour"

    Yes Annellénor, that is correct, 1 and a half cups :)
