Cookie stick recipe

Cookie Sticks Recipe


  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips or M & M's, any baking chips, or combination
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts optional (I do not put on the nuts.)


  1. In a large bowl, combine the oil, sugars, egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to sugar mixture and mix well.
  2. Divide dough in half. (I use my biggest airbake pans and divide a single batch into thirds. When I divided it in half and did 2 long strips, it was harder to keep the cookie strips narrow. The dough just spread too much; and when the cookie strips get too wide, the cookie strips break easily.)
  3. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray or grease the cookie sheet. Place each section of dough on the cookie sheet, and press down into a long strip like shown in the pictures. Allow about 3" between each strip and 1"-2" on each end, as the dough does expand when it bakes.
  4. Sprinkle chocolate chips or M &M's, and nuts if desired over dough; press lightly.
  5. Bake at 375° for 6-7 minutes. (Bake for 8-9 minutes for crispier cookies.) Cool for 5 minutes. Cut with a serrated knife into 1-in. strips; remove to wire racks to cool.
  6. Yield: about 3 dozen.
