   Recipe by: The New Dr. Cookie Cookbook
       Preheat oven to 350 degrees; coat a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking
   spray.  Beat the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla with an electric mixer until
   smooth.  Add the flour and baking powder and beat until well mixed. Stir
   the chocolate chips into the dough, if using. Drop the dough by large
   spoonfuls along the baking sheet to form 2 vertical lines. The spoonfuls of
   dough should be close together.
       With lightly floured hands, work these 2 lines to make 2 parallel rolls
   of dough lining each side of the cookie sheet. Leave ample room for
   spreading between the rolls and on the sides of the cookie sheets. Each
   roll will spread during baking so that it is about 5 inches wide. Bake the
   rolls for about 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly firm to
   the touch.  Take the rolls from the oven and reduce the temperature to 300
       Cool the baked roll on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes.
    Using a serrated knife, cut each roll into 24 slices. Turn each slice on
   its side as it is cut.  Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. Turn the slices
   onto their other sides and return to the oven for about 5 minutes longer.
   The cookies on the ends will be done sooner than the rest. Watch carefully
   to avoid overbrowning.  Cool the cookies on wire racks. Penny Halsey
