Yummy Dairy Free/Egg Free Chocolate Chip Cookies!!

Over the weekend we all got a hankering for some chocolate chip cookies. With my son's food allergies making desserts has long been a challenge, especially desserts that everyone likes, so he can feel included! Well, I "found" a cookie recipe that was a hit with everyone and if I didn't tell you, I bet you wouldn't have guessed it was dairy/egg free either! So if you're in the mood for a little baking check out this recipe from Mother's Click, delicious!

Makes 2 1/2 - 3 doz.(small cookies, if you don't eat some of the dough!)

Ingredients with measurements:
1 c. dairy-free margarine*
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. soy milk or rice milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/4 c. unbleached flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In large mixing bowl, cream together butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add rice or soy milk and cream. Mix in vanilla extract.

Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to the creamed ones. Fold in dairy free chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonful on to a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on wire racks. Yumm!

*For the butter substitute I used Earth Balance from my local health food store. For the chocolate chips I used a brand called Tropical Source by Sunspire that are dairy and gluten free, always check your own labels though. Enjoy!
