Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Happy Hump Day!  I made these chocolate chip (chunk) cookies Monday night.  I used the chocolate chip cookie recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  I used dark chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips, since that's all I had.  I also put some pecans in them.  This was my first batch of vegan chocolate chip cookies to make, and they were great.  I can't seem to get enough chocolate here lately for some reason, so I whipped these up while I had supper (spaghetti) cooking.   They were fast and oh so very good!  Tony even gave them a two thumbs up.  They were very moist and soft, which is the perfect chocolate chip cookie to me.


In my pre-vegan days I was a HUGE chocolate chip cookie dough fan.  I'm totally serious!  Chocolate chip cookie dough was like crack to me.  I had rather eat the cookie dough than make cookies out of it.  With that being said, after I added the chocolate chunks to this cookie dough, I just had to take a bite to see how it compared to the original stuff.  The taste was very close to what I remember eating.  I couldn't believe my taste buds.  It was very hard to stop eating the dough, but I thought Tony might like to have some cookies.  So, into the oven my little dough balls went.  :o)

  3. "I had rather eat the cookie dough than make cookies out of it." TOTALLY agree! I think I pretty much ONLY make cookies and cakes to eat the dough/batter. Another awesome thing about vegan backing - no salmonella or e. coli! :)

  9. I always thought cookie dough was delicious too! It seems to have more flavor than the cookie themselves...but I've always love choc chip cookies too; yours look perfect, and just the right size to dip in some coffee or soy milk! :D

    Those look delicious. Little cookies are so cute. Bonus- there's no raw egg in vegan cookie dough!
