Very Tiny Lower Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 43mins
Recipe by ladypit

Tonight my husband asked for chocolate chip cookies but I couldn't get myself to use all that butter. I found the recipe for these but was a little concerned since every chocolate chip cookie recipe I've used with canola oil has a problem with the chips adhering to the dough. Luckily, this was not a problem and these turned out really yummy and not difficult to work with at all. These will be a very crispy cookie. Adapted from a recipe in "Great Good Food" by Julee Rosso. Baking time is so long because this takes multiple times of filling up your baking sheets!

I scaled this down by half, using 1 egg, 3/4 cup sugar paired with a couple tablespoons of molasses, and no chocolate chips. I'm someone who doesn't have much luck with cookies, but these have come out perfectly every time I've made them. Wonderful, thank you.
