Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? This is probably the best recipe I’ve tried yet. It’s been modified from Nestle Tollhouse’s recipe. I can’t wait to share these with my friends today. The sooner I get the cookies out of my house the better! Enjoy!
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon of Ener-G egg replacer (at most grocery stores, usually in natural foods section)
- 1 cup (2 sticks) margarine, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar (dark brown sugar adds a nice touch of molasses flavor)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 – 2 cups of chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Turn on the oven to 375 degrees farenheit. Combine dry, set aside.
Beat the margarine and the sugar together until they are well combined and creamy.
Add the vanilla to the mixture. Then add the dry ingredients bit by bit until they are completely mixed. Don’t overmix. At this point, it will probably be too dry. Add a small amount of cold water bit by bit until the dough just starts to hold together. You’ll probably need about 1/4 cup of water total, but add it in smaller amounts.
Add the chips (and nuts if you’re using them) and mix them evenly through the batter.
For baking, form the dough into balls on a baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes, until they’re golden brown.
