They are a must try!

Now, I know you’ll look at the ingredient list and see vegetable oil and think to yourself  “These cookies can’t be low in points.” But…they are!

 I made these cookies 3 different times to try to perfect them. I made the first batch with 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce and the texture just wasn’t right, then I made them using 1/3 cup light butter and they were greasy and did not taste “right”-so then I decided to use 1/3 vegetable oil-and the texture was right on point!

To my surprise and maybe your surprise- when I added the recipe in the WW app- with the 1/3 cup vegetable oil-I was shocked to see that for 2 dozen ( which I usually make,  they would be 3 Smartpoints each) but I realized I had left over dough and I ended up making 26 cookies- which makes these only 2 Smartpoints each-and a decent size for a 2 point cookie!  

The key to keeping these crinkle cookies soft is to not overcook them. You’ll want to bake until just set-which means that the edges of the cookie should be slightly firm or dry to the touch and the top of the cookie should no longer look too wet. This is most often given with chewy cookies, or  brownie-like chocolate cookies where you want to make sure that the finished cookie is not overdone and the amount of browning around the edge does not necessarily give you a definitive result on how done it is. The vegetable oil makes these cookies soft, almost cake-like.

I always feel compelled to review your recipes cause they are so dang Good! I used the almond extract in mine. They will be very soft when you take them out of the oven. Let cool for a bit, then slip them onto your cooling racks. Chocolate bliss!! Thank you, Thank you!!

I have weak hands, and use my KitchenAide to mix everything. Your cookie recipes state "mix by hand" can I use my mixer without ruining the cookies? I would use low speed.

Hi Marla

Thanks for your comments. You may use a mixer if you aren't able to mix by hand. It will not ruin the texture if it's at a low speed.

Thank you
