How to make olive oil cookies?

I hope you like chewy chocolate cookies with powdered sugar. This chocolate crinkle cookie recipe is from a YouTube video (below). But I'm using olive oil as a substitute for vegetable oil.

When making cookies with olive oil, just use the same amount as you would with butter or vegetable oil. Essentially, it's 1-to-1 ratio.

I've come to like the taste of olive oil for baking. The baked goodies seem to taste lighter. It's the only way I can describe it.

Here's the source video. The author made bigger versions of the cookies, so s/he used an ice cream scoop instead of tablespoons.
