Chocolate Chip Cookies (low-fat)
Firmly packed dark brown
Regular rolled oats
(6 oz.) semisweet choc.
In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter, oil, and brown
sugar until smooth. Add egg, applesauce, and vanilla; beat until
blended. Beat in baking powder, soda, and salt, then flour, until
smooth. Scrape side of bowl, then stir in oats and chocolate.
Bake dough right away; if allowed to sit, cookies will be dry. Drop
dough by 2-tablespoon portions onto 2 lightly oiled 12-by-15-inch
baking sheets, spacing evenly. Dip fingertips in granulated sugar,
then pat cookies into 1/3-inch-think rounds.
Bake in a 350~ oven until pale golden, about 10 minutes; switch pan
positions after 5 minutes. Lift to racks; eat warm or cool. Makes
