“To me, the perfect chocolate chip cookies are super tender and almost crumble in your mouth when you take a bite—and that's exactly what happens with these! Instead of eggs and butter, I use margarine and applesauce for this vegan recipe. But my secret ingredients are tahini and coconut sugar which add a light taste of sesame and caramel. If you can't find coconut sugar, substitute it with regular sugar. Although the dough improves when refrigerated overnight, I feel like the perfect chocolate chip cookies shouldn't require you to wait for a day until you can finally eat them. But if you have a little more time, your patience will pay off!. #stayhomekeepcooking”
