For frying yes, for baking no. But you can use butter or margarine instead of Crisco, the cookies will spread more with those than with Crisco so place them further apart on the cookie sheet.

Sherrya is right. If you want them to spread less, add a little more flour than you usually would, to make a stiffer dough. This won't completely eliminate it, but it will help a bit.

I wouldn't use oil if I was baking the cookies, but I would if I was frying them. If you don't want the cookies to spread out much, you have to use a bit more flour.

If you are concerned with a healthy solution than go with a low fat baking spray.If baking than no.

I agree with Henry'smom and JB ^^^. Use real butter for the best cookies in the world.
