I was invited to my daughters school for a guest lecture so I wanted to take some goodies for the kids. Made few batches of double chocolate cookies and wanted to make plain cookies for kids who might not like chocolate. That’s when I realized I ran out of butter. Didn’t have time to go for shopping so, modified the recipe and made these Butterless Cookies adding cold pressed coconut oil to get some flavor.
These cookies became such a huge hit not just with the kids but also my friends. So, here is the recipe:

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time : 13-15 minutes per batch
Makes : 34 cookies

 Vegetable oil : 1/2 cup
Coconut oil: 1/2 cup (I used cold pressed)
Brown sugar: 1 cup
Sugar : 1 cup
Eggs : 2
Vanilla extract: 1 teaspoon
All purpose flour: 2 1/2 cups
Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
Baking soda : 1/2 teaspoon
Salt : 1/2 teaspoon

Method :
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a mixing bowl, cream together oil and both sugars. Add eggs and beat well. Add vanilla and mix well.
Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix well. Refrigerate the dough for 15 minutes.
Scoop in a golf ball size dough on to a greased cookie tray and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Let them cool before moving them to a wire rack.
