Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Success: To make cookies the same size, measure 2 teaspoons (10 mL) dough to shape into balls or use a small ice-cream scoop. Measuring the dough before shaping will make cookies about the same size and ensure that cookies in a batch are done at the same time.
  • Tip 2
    How-To: Get the kids to help with this cookie favourite. They'll love to shape the dough into cookies.
  • Tip 3
    Variation: For Chocolate Chip Fudge Crinkles, stir 1 cup (250 mL) miniature semisweet chocolate chips into the dough.
  • Tip 4
    Substitution: In place of the vegetable oil, you can use 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter or margarine, softened.
