VeganMofo: Day 24

Forgive me father, I am a bad blogger. It has been 18 days since my last post.

My cookies bring all the boys to the yard. I am obsessed with cookes. I make this dough and freeze it and give it to people as gifts. I want you to have the recipe. Make these cookies or you will have bad luck for 7 years.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 c (338 g) Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1 t Baking Soda
1 t Salt

1/3 c (71 g) Canola Oil
1/2 c (80g) Shortening or Margarine
1 1/2 c (300g) Granulated Sugar plus 1 T (15 g) Molasses
OR 1/2 c Granulated Sugar plus 1 c Brown Sugar
1 1/2 t Vanilla Extract

1 c (125 g) Chocolate Chips

1 T (5 g) Ground Flax Seeds
3 T (40 g) Water
1/4 c (45 g) Silken Tofu

With a whisk, beat together the Ground Flax Seeds, Water and Silken Tofu in a large bowl. The Tofu will not get completely smooth: a little chunky is alright (better even!) In a smaller bowl, mix the Flour, Baking Soda and Salt together. Cream together the Oil and Shortening/Magarine until smooth then cream in the sugars and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well. Fold in Chocolate Chips. Roll dough into balls about the size of quarters. Bake at 350F (180C) for 10 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
