Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am so happy and thrilled today. Reason??, well I successfully baked a set of cookies. I am so fond of baking, but the challenge I always have is to bake eggless stuff. Be it cookies, cakes, muffins anything. I do eat eggs but indirectly. I cannot stand the smell of it in the freshly baked goods. So, when I make anything at home, I do it eggless way. I baked my ever favorite chocolate chip cookies today and succeeded. They were so moist and soft inside and slightly crispy outside. The best part is my daughter too liked them. She is not a big fan of sweet stuff but she kept asking me "mummy cookie". That gives lot of satisfaction after hard work.

Here is the recipe that I followed:


1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs ( I used 2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 6 tbsp warm water )
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cup All purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F with wire rack in center of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. I had only a piece of it which I used the rest I just placed them directly on the baking sheet. Those had a crispy bottom, because of the butter they will not stick to the baking sheet. So if you do not have parchment paper do not worry and place them directly on the baking sheet.

I do not have an electric mixer so I used food processor for this process. Bring butter to room temperature and place it in the food processor bowl. Cream it. Add both sugars and run the processor until fluffy. In a blender, take the ground flaxseed and water and beat it until frothy. Add that to the butter mixture and run the processor until well blended. Add vanilla and beat until incorporated.

In another bowl take flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry to the wet ingredients and run the processor until the mixture forms into a ball. Take it into a bowl, add chocolate chips and pecans. If you find the dough to be too soft, cover and refrigerate it for about 30 minutes or until it forms a firm dough. I did not find it too soft so I just proceeded and dropped about 2 tbsp dough balls on the baking sheet. Bake it for about 8 - 10 minutes or until the cookies turn golden brown.



Hot hot chocolate chip cookies are ready to be served. You will not believe that these are eggless unless if you are used to the smell of eggs in baked products. My daughter eats raw dough, calling it as "pind"(In telugu dough is called pindi). I don't have to hesitate giving her the raw dough, as it does not have raw eggs in it.


I am sending these goodies to my own event called Sunday Snacks - the theme being Bake it.
