I love these cookies -- especially the next day -- they become very soft!
VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
•2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
•1 teaspoon baking soda
•1 teaspoon salt
•1 cup (2 sticks) shortening, softened (Earth’s Balance or margarine)
•3/4 cup granulated sugar
•3/4 cup packed brown sugar (I prefer dark, but light also works)
•1 teaspoon vanilla extract
•½ cup of blended tofu – this is @ ¼ - ½ of a block of tofu, use soft or silken
•2 cups chocolate chips
PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
BEAT shortening, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. (you can use electric mixer or mix by hand)
BLEND tofu until smooth/creamy. Then add to shortening/sugar mixture.
Then, gradually BEAT in flour mixture.
STIR in chips.
DROP by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
