Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
From How it all Vegan (cookbook) submitted by Jen VanAlstine - she brought these to our event at the Northern Spy and you asked for it! Or even if you didn't or were not there these are tasty and all vegan.

3/4 cup dry sweetener (raw sugar)
1/2 cup soy margarine (1 stick), softened
1/2 cup oil (I use sunflower)
3 tbsp water
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups flour (try spelt flour, but add 1/2 tsp of baking powder too)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups choc chips = 10 oz. bag (get the good/organic or dark chips!)

Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking soda, (baking powder, if using spelt flour) and salt. In a mixer bowl, stir together the sweetener, margarine, oil, water, and vanilla. Add this margarine mixture to the flour mixture. Mix together well. Then add in the chocolate chips.

Scoop spoon sized portions onto an ungreased cookie sheet, roll between hands into balls, then slightly press onto cookie sheet with tips of fingers. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tops are slightly browned. Let cool before removing from the cookie sheet. This recipe makes at least 20 large, 35 medium, or at least 50 small cookies. Enjoy with a nice cold glass of soy or rice milk!
