Chocolate Chip Cookies-The Complete Vegan Cookbook
The non-vegan painter who is working hard at our house today sampled a couple of these cookies and gave them a 2 thumbs (or paintbrushes) up. The applesauce makes them a bit chewy.
Chocolate Chip Cookies: (Susann Geiskopf-Hadler & Mindy Toomay)
1 1/4 cups unbleached white flour
1/2 teasp. baking soda
1/4 teasp. ground cinnamon
2/3 cup organic granulated sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teasp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup vegan chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Stir together the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. In a larger bowl, combine sugar, applesauce, and vanilla extract. Mix until the sugar is well incorporated. Add the flour mixture, stirring until all ingredients combine to form a stiff dough. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Mound rounded teaspoons of batter onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 min. until golden brown. Remove from the oven and transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
