Chocolate Chip Cookies


So here I am in Milwaukee. Having fun, lounging around my BFFs house instead of lounging around mine. As someone who is busy lounging around peoples houses, I wanted to eat chocolate chip cookies. So I did and then had them for breakfast today. This is just the Toll House recipe, halved because I didn't want to make so many cookies. They're yummy. 

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Plain, old, chocolate chip cookies. I am pretty sure you can replace the egg with egg replacer or applesauce and make them vegan.  

a heaping 1 3/4 c rice flour, or flour mix
1/2 t xanthan gum
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 stick shortening, Earth Balance, or butter
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c white sugar
1 t vanilla
1 egg
1/2 package chocolate chips
nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 375. Mix sugars and shortening or butter until creamy. Beat in egg, then dry ingredients except chocolate chips and nuts, if using. Once smooth, add chips and nuts, and roll into balls, flatten slightly, and bake 8-10 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheets, then remove and eat. 

This is who I've been spending my time with while Kelly is at work.

  5. I just realized that I never commented on this recipe that this is my go-to chocolate chip recipe. It hasn't failed me yet - though the texture may vary from batch to batch, the cookies are always good. Thank you!
