Equipment

Ingredients

  • ½ cup margarine or vegan butter (Miyokos, Earth balance or Country Crock plant butter are good.)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar - packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons soymilk
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips

Instructions

  • With an electric mixer, or by hand, cream together the margarine and sugar for 1-2 minutes, making sure it whips up into a creamy mixture. Add the vanilla and soymilk and mix until it starts to look like caramel
    ½ cup margarine or vegan butter, 1 cup light brown sugar - packed, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 3 tablespoons soymilk
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda
    1 ½ cups all purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon baking soda, ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. If the dough seems too dry still, add 1 more tablespoon of soymilk. DON'T OVER MIX! Fold in the chocolate chips once batter seems right.
    1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • Put the batter in the fridge and chill for AT LEAST 30 minutes (24 hours is best, but 30 minutes does the trick as well.) If you're in a hurry you can skip this, but they taste better when they've had time to sit.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Using a 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop, form dough into balls and put on a lined or oiled baking sheet. Bake for 11-12 minutes, or until edges start to look a little golden brown and center is puffed. Every oven is different, so watch your cookies! You may have to bake them a little longer depending on your oven.
  • It may still look undercooked in the middle, but it's all good. Once the edges start to look cooked, take cookies out of the oven and let them sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes to finish baking. Place cookies on a cooling rack to finish. If you want crispier cookies, let the cookies bake longer. If you want softer, chewier cookies, bake them less.

Notes

Every margarine and vegan butter contains different amount of moisture. If the dough is too dry, add a splash or two of soy milk.
If you want crispier cookies, let the cookies bake longer. If you want softer, chewier cookies, bake them less.
How to measure flour correctly
Step one: Stir the flour.
Step two: Spoon flour into the measuring cup.
Step three: Level off the flour with the flat end of a knife, putting excess flour back into the bag.
Bonus: Hit the "metric" button at top of recipe to convert this to grams and use a kitchen weight and measure out the flour in grams. This is the most accurate way to measure flour.
