chocolate chip cookies

my babies ate chocolate chip cookies for the very first time this weekend! this recipe made a ton of cookie dough. i made little cookie dough balls, placed them in a ziplock and freezed them for next time. forgot to take pics... will add later.

2 cups unbleached flour
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp.salt
cinnamon to taste
semi-sweet chocolate chips (no milk)
1 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup water


Preheat oven to 350.

Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon (if you choose). Add chips. Make a well in the center and set aside.

In a medium size bowl mix vegan sugar and oil. Mix it well. Add the vanilla and then add the water. Mix it well. Add the wet to the well in the dry. Mix it well but be careful not to overwork it. Add more chips if you need to. Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Put them in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes and then flip and rotate the sheets (top to bottom,and 180 degree rotation). Bake another 4 minutes and check them. The cookies are done when they seem a little bit softer then you want them to be. They will harden as they cool.

--UPDATE-- 12/29/09
so i made these in June right? and had some stored in the freezer. i defrosted them, then smashed them flat with a fork before baking. if you don't it'll cook as a ball. i know, 6 months old. but not gross. the kids devoured them. time to make a new batch.
