After a couple of stressful days of moving, these cookies were a must to celebrate. You never really understand just how much stuff you’ve accumulated until it all needs to go in a box. After spending over 12 hours getting all our belongings out of our old apartment, my boyfriend and I were finally able to turn our keys in. At the moment, we’re currently in limbo, but we hope to be in our new place soon.
I was originally going to make a chocolate chocolate chip cookie that my grandma made for Thanksgiving last year. But now that I’m in a new kitchen, it’s a bit disorienting. I took out a couple of eggs, but then forgot to add them to the batter. Since they came out amazing without the eggs, they can easily be made vegan. All you’ll need to do is substitute the butter for vegan butter.
Since there aren’t any eggs, these cookies remind me of those delicious European cookies. These are a bit on the drier side and have a nice crumbly consistency. Instead of chocolate chips, I used chocolate melting wafers. They’re similar to the chips, but a little bigger and they become a bit meltier (yeah that’s now a word!) than the chips. I noticed that the chips become solid after cookies cool, but the wafers stay soft. These cookies are perfect after a long day.
