Chocolate Olive Oil Crinkle Cookies & Giveaway!!!

Chocolate Olive Oil Crinkle Cookies a1

Ever since I have experienced olive oil tasting in one of the events in Orange Food Week, I have learned to keep different types of olive oil for various purposes. I confess I used to keep an all-purpose olive oil. I know, I know, you can lift your jaw from the floor now. I didn’t know better then.

Now I have a small collection of olive oil. One for salad dressing, one is for dipping with bread and the other for sautéing as well as baking.  With my slight addiction of dipping sourdough in olive oil (so delicious!) as well as my fondness of baking a lot of olive oil, I felt like I have come a long way from just associating olive oil with salad dressing.

If you are wondering which olive oil should be use for what, well, wonder no more as Bertolli Olive Oil has launched an online campaign to educate food lovers on the benefits of using the correct type olive oil for cooking.  Whilst I worked on the basis of the more expensive olive oil is for direct consumption and the cheaper one is for cooking, the recent packaging of Bertolli Olive Oil actually specifies  the recommended usage of each type of their olive oil:-

  • Classico: Best Choice for barbequing & roasting
  • Extra Light: Best for baking and frying
  • Extra Virgin: Best for salads, pasta sauces & dips

Although I wonder, which one of the above is better to use as eye make remover eh? Lol

Jokes aside, these olive oil crinkle cookies have been on my mind for a while.  They looked spectacular as well as spontaneous-baker-friendly. Having no butter in bakegoods does not mean it is less decadent.

  1. Spaghetti aglio e olio. Spaghetti with garlic and oil! And chilli and parsley….. Delicious, quick, cheap and the hot spaghetti allows the oil to diffuse flavour perfectly.

  2. Chocolate olive oil cake – so moist and yummy! Especially when it’s warm out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream on the side 🙂

  3. Hi Emily
    I have to say my favorite olive oil receipe would be orange chiffon cake with a half cup of olive oil it gives the cake a lighter consistency and makes it very moist!

  4. My husband is allergic to wheat so the easiest way to cook cakes is to buy the special packet mixes, as mixing up so many different flours is a real pain. The packet mixes that I make for him say to use melted butter, but I use the same amount of Olive Oil instead, the cakes always turn out perfectly that way!!!

    • I used olive oil the first time, as I didn’t have enough butter, but it worked so well, I use it all the time!

  5. I only had home made chilli oil, but used it anyway and the cookies were amazing!! This is definitely one to make often. 🙂

  6. SENSATIONAL! These were being eaten straight off the baking tray within minutes of coming out of the oven! They’re like mini brownies. Melt in the mouth deliciousness!

  7. Pesto is never complete without Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It has to be homemade as Pesto from the shops are made with those nasty oils.

  8. My favourite olive oil recipe is Garlic Prawns, absolutely delicious and soak up all the oil with bread, yummy

  9. Chopped tomatoes, finely sliced red onion, dried oregano and fresh basil combined with lots of olive oil, salt and pepper and served with crusty Italian bread is to die for!

  10. Once when making garlic mash,
    discovered with horror I had no butter,
    so I grabbed the Extra Virgin Olive Oil,
    my daughter thought I was a nutter,
    but it is now a family favourite,
    as it turned out to be an absolute smash!

  11. so many recipes and only one entry Im going to go with something very simple and delicious.

    slice some cabiata bread or french stick thinly drizzle lightly with some friuty tasting Betolli olive oil bake in the oven at 180 degress celcius for 5-7 mins till golden and crisp.Chop up some fresh roman tomatoes,some fresh sprigs of basil chopped,chopped garlic ,cracked black pepper and drizzle again lightly with Bertolli olive oil,top onto bread and enjoy the beautifull flavours .cheers xx
    P.S love the page Fuss Free Cooking .

  12. Not so much a dish, but I love making my own Basil Pesto with basil from my garden, I have it in pasta, on pizza, in potato bake, I even mix it into the egg-wash when crumbing chicken legs to make Pesto Crumbed Chicken 🙂

  13. ~Chocolate Mousse with Fresh Berries & Biscotti~ The Extra Virgin Olive Oil gives it such a gorgeous glossy shine and topped with blueberries, strawberries and raspberries…its DIVINE!

  14. My 10min microwave Chocolate selfsaucing pudding! Quick and easy made with olive oil…been cooking this dessert since my sons were little! They still ask me to make it and they are close to 30’s!
