Last week I broke in my new kitchen aide mixer with a batch of chocolate chip cookies. They were delish and went super quick. Yesterday, I was craving another batch but quickly discovered I needed eggs and we were all out. The novice baker that I am wasn't sure what to do. Thankfully, Pinterest exists. Seriously.. what would we do without it? I may have been forced to actually get dressed and go to the store. (The horror!) I found a recipe that worked with the ingredients I had on hand and whipped it up. Dave and I both agreed that we liked this recipe much better than the other and plan to make this our official, "go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe".
I'm writing this one down to keep forever and now sharing it with you, because it's that good. But I do warn you, you're gonna want a huge glass of milk to go with these. They're ooey, gooey and just so good.
Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 stick of softened butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon water
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup chocolate chips (we use fair trade chocolate chips)
Here's what you do:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
- Beat the butter with both sugars (white + brown) for 1 to 2 minutes, until creamy
- Add in flour + baking soda. Mix together.
- Add water + oil + vanilla. Mix together.
- Fold in the chocolate chips with a spoon.
- Drop by spoonful onto the baking sheet. The original recipe didn't specify whether to grease the cookie sheet. I buttered and floured the sheet anyway (just in case) I then used my hands to pull apart and roll the batter into balls. I got 12 cookies out of it this way.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes.
- Let cool on a cooling rack
