|Chocolate Chip Cookie Sticks - ButterYum|
So there I was, around 9pm the other night, when out of nowhere my daughter tells me she needed to bring cookies to school in the morning. *Sigh*
I really hate when that happens. Anyway, I started brainstorming my memory banks for a fast cookie recipe and this one came to mind. It was perfect for this situation because it's very quick as there's no need to wait for butter to soften, the dough is easily mixed by hand, and all 36 cookies bake on one sheet pan in less than 10 minutes. Oh and they're super cool looking too.
Divide dough into two equal portions.
Pat each portion into a 3x15-inch rectangle.
You don't have to do this, but I like to use a pastry scraper to make the edges nice and neat.
Chocolate chips are gently pressed into the cookie dough before baking.
The baked cookie rectangles are allowed to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the sheet pan.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Sticks
makes 36 cookies sticks
adapted from Taste of Home
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, combine oil, both sugars, egg, and vanilla; add the dry ingredients and stir until well blended. Divide dough in half. On a silicone or parchment lined sheet pan, shape each half into a 3x15-inch rectangle, leaving 3 inches of space between the two rectangles. Sprinkle each rectangle with 1/2 cup chocolate chips; gently pressing the chocolate chips into the dough. Bake in the center of the oven for 6-7 minutes for chewy cookies (8-9 minutes for crisper cookies). Allow to cool completely before cutting into 36 cookie sticks. Use a serrated knife for best results.
