Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a love hate relationship with putting vegan in the title; because some people assume that means not-delicious. Let me tell you these crisp edged, gooey centered cookies are most definitely delicious. 

I bake these almost every week! The recipe makes two dozen, assuming you don't eat spoonfuls of dough before baking. And, because there's no raw egg you can feel totally safe about doing that!

Ok, these are ridiculously easy. It will take you less than 10 minutes to whip up, and they are soooo good. Breaking into one of these transports me back to my grandma's kitchen, when I was three years old scrounging the kitchen floor for every last fallen chocolate chip. When I was in college, she would send me 8 dozen for finals week. She's one awesome lady, and I think both her and the cookie monster would be proud. 

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup fake butter (2 sticks very soft)

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup of water

1 tablespoon Vanilla

1/2 tsp salt

2 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup of chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350. Cream the butter and sugar, mix all other ingredients. Bake for 10-12 min till edges look golden. The center will look slightly unset. It will finish baking after it's out of the oven. 

Does vegan being in the title scare you off?
