Adding some butter or margarine to this recipe makes the cookies crispy on the outside; for a chewier cookie you may try replacing the butter all together for one whole avocado. Note this may require a longer cooking time.
For added fun, this recipe can be modified to use macadamia nuts, walnuts or other types of flavored chocolate chips and festive colored chips or sprinkles for the holidays.
Great for dipping in a glass of cold milk.
- Medium avocados are recommended for this recipe. A medium avocado averages about 5 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
