Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe comes from the back of a Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chip bag. However, I did not use Nestle chocolate chips because they contain milk products. The Wal*Mart brand of chocolate chips does not contain dairy! (Cheap is good sometimes!)

2 1/4 cup All purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 sticks dairy free margarine, at least a little soft
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs (or 1/2 cup applesauce)
2 cups dairy-free semi-sweet chocolate morsels

I literally put it all in the bowl together and mixed it with my Kitchen-Aid Hobart mixer.
Drop small balls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Cook 11 -13 minutes at 375. Yield: about 45 cookies

For a really detailed look at the original recipe and whether you want to sift your dry ingredients or not, visit Cooking for Engineers - it's a fun site for cooking!

UPDATE: These can also be made into bars. Just spread the dough onto a 15x10 inch jelly roll pan and bake 20 -25 minutes at 375. Use a pizza cutter for ease of slicing while warm.

Just made these with Earth Balance, vegan buttery sticks, applesauce and Enjoy Life dairy, soy & gluten free semi-sweet chocolate chips. They turned out delicious. Thanks for great blogs!

Loved the cookies. I was trying to find a dairy free cookie recipe that stilled used eggs, and yours in the best. My kids love them and they are very suspicious when I start in on my health kicks. We are a family of lactose-intolarant people and are doing our best to enjoy life without dairy. I would love to find a good cookie recipe that cut down the sugar, but they just don't taste the same without it. Thanks for posting this.
