Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Cream together eggs, olive oil, and sugar in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and pale gold in color. Add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Shape dough into a ball and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Use a teaspoon to drop spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches of space in between as cookies will spread. Refrigerate leftover dough to bake in batches.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until just golden around the edges, about 8 minutes. Allow to cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.

Cook's Notes:

The cookies and dough freeze well. The dough will last in the refrigerator up to 24 hours.

You can also use a high-gluten flour (such as Manitoba(R)) instead of all-purpose flour.

I made these with gluten-free flour added a tspn of vanilla extract and refrigerated overnight. My niece and I used cookie cutters to make snowman and snowflake cookies. They were yummy but not exceptional. Read More
