    This is not a recipe that I would normally pick out to make but my 12 yr old son saw it in a cookbook and requested it. Was a little skeptical because of the oil. (By the way if you're that person that doesn't bake a lot and doesnt have fresh ingredients on hand these probably will taste awful as anything does made with old oil) beat the oil/egg/sugars for a bit. Shaped just as described and baked for 7 min and they came out very nice. We used all chips. White, semi-sweet, and butterscotch. Only thing I would recommend is put lots of chips on. These spead while baking and then they became rather sparse. I only got 2 dozen. With the ease of making them and the fact the kids like to put the chips on and they like the shape, I will probably make them again. Ha! Who knew?! ??

    I'm a very experienced baker/food blogger. In concept, I really like the idea of cookie sticks, but I have to be completely honest and say this recipe makes the least flavorful chocolate chip cookies I've ever tasted. They're not bad, but they're not particularly tasty either. Must be the lack of butter. If I were to make them again (and that's a big if), I'd try to boost the flavor by doubling the vanilla.

    These are delicious; you would never know they were not made with butter. I just shape them into cookies and bake for 8-10 minutes.

    These were great, fast, and easy to make. I also liked that it took only one pan to bake all of them. The recipe using oil instead of butter worked well because we actually ran out of butter right before we were going to make these!!

    I was looking for a recipe that called for oil instead of butter. My guys love Tollhouse cookies and were skeptical, but they loved these. They are chewy, very easy to make and you only have to deal with the oven for one pan (6-7 minutes)! I mixed the chips & nuts into the dough before I shaped it, rather than pressing them into the top.
