Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup canola oil
1/4 cup applesauce (or 1 egg substitute)
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups crushed peppermint candy (I use peppermint sticks)
1 1/2 cups vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix sugar, brown sugar, oil, and egg replacer in a large bowl.
2. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in another bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet. Add chocolate chips and crushed peppermint.
3. Drop on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in the oven for about 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on these because sometimes the peppermint will seep and burn on the pan.
I recommend not using any type of vegetable shortening for these cookies. They will turn out dull and flat.
