Vegan NYT Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

NYT Chocolate Chip Cookies {vegan}

this december has been standoffish, ill-content in what temperature range to stay in, one day warm, the next fickle and cold, leaving much to desire -- along with my dressing room in disarray. so unlike november, when it was a steady coolness that encouraged soft sweaters and gloved hand holding, the first week of the 12th month has had its ups & downs.

december has always been a busy succession of days reserved for holiday cheer and birthday accolades. we spent our weekend among friends and little ones, sharing these delightful cookies, something that i can finally bring back into my diet. i made them often and when i nixed dairy they disappeared. now, this is their 2nd appearance.

the first time we agonized over the cold dough, combining two ice cream scoopfuls. then we decided to make do with one scoop prior to refrigeration and they turned out wonderfully. the first time dw ate these cookies, he had to with a fork. the cookie were fresh from the oven, had not yet set and were too soft to handle. they are that good.

another vegan recipe i'm wanting to give a try: rosewater & thyme.



this is my contribution to the Food Matters Project, a weekly reminder that we are a perishable item and we need to eat accordingly. we draw our inspiration from Mark Bittman's cookbook of the same name. this week was sponsored by Margarita of Let's Cook & Be Friends. the recipe is for walnut-orange biscotti. i won't lie, i've made biscotti once & failed, i opted to save my pride & make cookies instead.

if you'd like to join in the fun, invest in the cookbook & check out the schedule for what recipe is hot for the week.


  1. Chocolate chip cookies are my absolute fave cookies, more if they're homemade. This is a great gift to give families - chocolate cookies that are like biscottis.

  7. Oooh, yum! I just made some chocolate chip cookies, but mine looked more like cakes than cookies. Your look fantastic!!

  8. Always looking for a good dairy-free cookie recipe! Although I'm not sure the dough would last the full 36-72 hours in the fridge without fingers poking in and grabbing at it...

  9. I have been experimenting with a vegan choc chip recipe for a while, but I think I will toss them all out for yours. beautiful!
