Hold up. Wait a minute. Are you telling me you can make chocolate chip cookies with olive oil? Oh yes, you can! They are downright divine and now my little “secret” ingredient.
Back in the day, I used to come home from school and plop myself down on the family room floor, and peruse my Mom’s large stack of cookbooks. Of course, I would thumb through and go straight to the cookie section. Since I was a kid, sugar was all I was focused on. There were cookies using everything from butter to shortening to oil. I remember thinking how do you make cookies with oil? I was about to find out.
