Dark Chocolate Chunk Drop Cookies
“Dark Chocolate Chunk Drop Cookies”
This is a guest post by Jes Keim over at The Vegan Screen.
I just know you’ll love these cookies! Big chunks of dark chocolate make them simply irresistible. I dare you to eat just one!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets and set aside.
1/2 cup of Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream
1/3 cup of vegan margarine, softened
2/3 cup of cane sugar
2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 good quality dark chocolate bar (about 3.5 ounces), coarsely chopped
Using a food processor, mix the Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream and the margarine; add the sugar, flaxseeds, salt, vanilla, baking soda, and baking powder. Blend the mixture until well combined, stopping the food processor to scrape down the sides when necessary.
Add the flour and run the food processor until a loose dough forms; while the food processor is running add the chopped chocolate through the barrel and continue to run the food processor until the mixture is just combined. (You do not want to break down all of the chocolate—leave some chunks!)
Drop the dough onto the cookie sheets by the heaping tablespoon, leaving plenty of space between. Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes, until set and slightly golden. Allow the cookies to sit on the pan for a minute or so, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Once cooled, store in a covered container. Enjoy!
Makes approximately 1 1/2 dozen cookies.
