Chocolate Chip Cookies-Like They Should Be

What you need: 

3/4 cup raw sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup vegan margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4-1/3 cup applesauce (enough to equal 1 egg)
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 (12 ounce) bag vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips

What you do: 

1. Heat oven to 370 degrees Fahrenheit. Beat sugars, margarine, vanilla, and applesauce together in a large bowl.
3. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. (Dough will be somewhat stiff). Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until light brown. Cool.
This is a recipe that my mom has been making my entire life, and I was so so so excited that they turned out so well after substituting a few things.
Enjoy!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

my cookies are always really really chewy/cakelike.....It might be because I take out the butter/oil and replace it with applesauce. ...So maybe just putting in some applesauce might help

These cookies are delicious but they crumble very easily before you can get them in the oven. The dough falls apart. Any suggestions on making the dough stick together better???

thanks :)

I never had that problem, they always stay together great for me. Are you making the recipe like it's listed or changing anything?

Mermaid07:

I used liquid egg replacer instead of applesauce and put in walnuts. Also, I used all raw sugar, no brown, and I used whole wheat flour. They're really yummy but it was hard putting them on the cookie sheet because the dough wasn't sticking together but rather crumbly. The cookies turned out fine though (a little on the crunchy side rather than chewy, but that's ok, no cookie is alike  ;)). Next time I think I would put in a couple tablespoons of soymilk or soy yogurt and use white flour.

I'm not sure if adding a little soy or yoghurt works or not as i haven't tested it.. but that's what I think I'd try if that happened anyway.. Hope it goes okay :)

I used 2/3 cup of applesauce.

These cookies were amazing! They were almost gone in one night!

next time I'd probably use only 1/2 cup of brown sugar, because the chocolate chips add most of the sweetness.

I made quite a few modifications for this recipe:

1) Only used 3/4 cup sugar TOTAL
2) Only used 1/2 cup earth balance margarine
3) Used about 1 cup of applesauce

They turned out pretty yummmy with alot of chocolate chips! Two was enough for me!

Thank you, Cephi. That helps.  I like them soft, not crispy and flat either.

I saw this one posting below too with baking powder. Does the 3/4 applesauce and 1/4 corn oil replace all of the margarine?

"Super yum. I used 3/4 applesauce and 1/4 corn oil and I added 1/2 tsp baking powder for a cakey cookie. So. Good."

Saskia, the ones I made are definitely moist -- I was quite surprised.  As to fluffiness, I suppose they are as fluffy as cookies ever are, and as fluffy as I myself care for them to be.  However they are chewy, not particularly cakey.  If you want them fluffier and cakier, I suspect that some baking powder would do the trick -- I don't know, 1/2 or 3/4 tsp?

I prefer a moist, fluffy chocolate chip cookie. Does this recipe produce a moist cookie, or is there a better chocolate chip cookie recipe on this site that does?

I tried a chocolate chip cookie recipe in a vegan cook book but the cookies were kind of dry.
