Oh, and I used large milk chocolate chips (Hersheys "mini kisses") and they really blended nicely with the olive oil.

Thanks for the link, both times!
You're very welcome, LP! I used rounded Tbsp and baked them about 10 minutes, and they were very lightly browned on the edges and just barely done, so I don't think I'd be able to get away with a lesser baking time as you did. If I try these again, I'm going to decrease the baking soda by half, and omit the milk, which should make them less cakey. Glad your second batch came out nice and chewy!

Oh, yes, I did exactly what you said. I used 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and added a little more oil instead of the milk (not as much mind you, just a few drops) the second time and they were heavenly. Sorry to leave that part out.

Those pies do look yummy :)

I have buttermilk honey bread rising right now. Just made some maple butter to go with it.
