Expert Tips

To make cookies the same size, measure 2 teaspoons 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.

Get the kids to help with this cookie favorite. They'll love to shape the dough into cookies.

For Chocolate Chip Fudge Crinkles, stir 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips into the dough.

In place of the vegetable oil, you can use 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened.
