Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

In a recent article for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, I collected some recipes from around town (and further afield) for cookie recipes that did something a little better than the original; in some cases that meant the resulting cookies were more health-conscious, and in some cases it meant that the recipe was designed with certain dietary restrictions in mind. I was happy to find a recipe for vegan chocolate chip cookies from Catherine Ruehle, the owner and chef of Sublime Bakery right here in Fort Worth. While Ruehle makes all sorts of traditional sweets, she also offers vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free versions, too. I immediately tried her vegan cookie recipe at home, and it went over really well, although the results were a little different than typical chocolate chip cookies in that they didn’t brown as much. I used conventional granulated sugar, because that’s what I had on hand, but Ruehle had recommended vegan sugar, specifically the Wholesome Sweeteners brand of organic cane sugar. I might also try brown sugar next time. Check out her recipe in the article before the link expires; it’s also great for anyone who’s allergic to eggs.
