Vegan White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
Since finding the vegan white chocolate chips, I knew that I wanted to make a yummy cookie with them! I worked until 11:00pm last night, and when I got home, I started baking these cookies! I know, I am a crazy lady baking at midnight. These turned out so delicious! They're so soft but they have a crispiness about them, too. And the flavor - Paul commented to me today, "Those are vegan!? What!" and even said "These are way better than the ones at Subway." Success!
Here's the recipe that I put together late last night:
3/4 cup raw sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup Earth Balance
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup applesauce
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
big handful of vegan white chocolate chips
big handful of chopped macadamia nuts
(You can adjust the amount of chocolate and nuts to your liking)
Heat oven to 370 degrees. Mix sugars, margarine, vanilla, and applesauce together in a large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
