I Can't Believe They're Vegan!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup vegan margarine

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/4 cup unbleached sugar

1 1/4 cups brown sugar

4 oz cinnamon apple sauce

1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1 tablespoon oil

2 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons vanilla nondairy milk

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Honestly, I can attest that side by side with regular chocolate chip cookies, these hold their own. I have been baking cookies for over three decades. My husband and I are bona fide cookie monsters. So trust me when I tell you that this recipe makes for great flavor and normal texture. Unlike regular cookies, you have to refrigerate the dough overnight before baking them. So plan accordingly.

  1. Melt the margarine completely in a sauce pan over medium heat.

  2. Blend flour, salt, and baking soda together.

  3. Pour melted margarine in a mixing bowl. Add vanilla, sugars, and applesauce. Cream on medium speed.

  4. In a small bowl, mix baking powder, oil, and water together vigorously until frothy. Add to margarine mixture changing speed to low. Add milk mixing at low speed again.

  5. Slowly add flour mixture mixing at low until doughy. Stir in chips and walnuts by hand.

  6. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight for at least 8 hours.

  7. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with vegetable spray.

  8. Drop by teaspoons onto sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.

I found this recipe on VegWeb.com. as "They're Vegan?!?!" but I have slightly modified it.
