some adjustments

while making these i had to add a bit of coconut milk as i was mixing the batter b/c it was too crumbly despite having followed the recipe exactly. when i added the milk it came together into a stiff dough. i also found that I had to bake them a bit longer than suggested. A bit less sugar and salt next time b/c those flavors were rather over-powering but still a very good cookie.

I did something wrong...

I folllowed this recipe exactly but my results were so much different from everyone else! The dough was so hard to combine near the end, it was SO thick. I ended up adding a little bit of water to help mix everything and that was a HUGE mistake- the dough turned into a paste that was impossible to mold into a ball or even get off my hand. Maybe I used too much butter?? I baked them anyway but I'm nervous to taste them...

Hi Ari! I'm so sorry you had issues with the cookies. I just added information to Step 4 to mention that the dough is going to be a little thicker than traditional non-vegan dough due to the absence of eggs. Thanks for bringing this to my attention and allowing me to improve this recipe!

Help...!!!

I am new to the healthy eating scene and was craving cookies, so I decided to try healthy chocolate chip cookies. While kneading the dough, I noticed it was crumbly and pretty dry. The dough smelled great (as well as my kitchen) but when I checked the cookies 8-minutes into baking, they had not started flattening. Help anyone??? I'd really like some cookies without a side of guilt :)

Owner's reply

Hi S Sutton, That's interesting that these cookies didn't flatten for you. I haven't modified the recipe and make it often with consistently flat results. Have you had your oven temperature verified with a third party oven thermometer? I also haven't tested this recipe with other margarine manufacturers so perhaps this can make a difference in dough consistency too. Feel free to reach out to me if you'd like to troubleshoot this further.

Harder than desired the next day

These were easy to make and I loved them immediately out of the oven, however the next day they were harder than a brick bat, as my Grandmother used to say! Still edible but ultra crunchy. I baked them for the indicated time at 25 degrees lower, because my oven's a bit hot. I think I should shorten the cook time and see if they would be softer the next day. Are they usually soft the next day? Oh, the only thing I did differently was I used Flax Meal not Golden Flax meal. I used Earth Balance Buttery Sticks. Thanks.
