Gardening & Baking Cookies

Ethan is going to visit his parents this weekend, while I suffer with gobs of homework, so I made some cookies for Cathy & David. These are vegan chocolate chip cookies, which are just a veganized version of the Toll House recipe. So good! I make these all the time at work.

Vegan Toll House Cookies
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • egg replacer for 2 eggs (I use Ener-G)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup nuts, optional
Preheat oven to 375*F. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, & salt; set aside. In a stand mixer, cream together the margarine, sugars, egg replacers, & vanilla; beat till light & fluffy, scraping down the side of the bowl a couple times. Add the flour mixture to the mixing bowl; mix until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips & nuts. Place 2-tablespoons-sized balls of dough on a cookie sheet, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes, letting them cool on the sheets before removing.


I had to get a few pictures of the garden. It's so sunny today & everything is growing like mad!

Here's some of the mint, hanging with its gnome guardian:
