time for some junk food

Tomorrow, after I sub my boss's early-morning Zumba class (my plan! It is falling into place!) the girls and I are making vegan chocolate chip cookies. Then we're gonna eat the dough give half to the new neighbors down the street. Here's the recipe--it's not brain-surgery-complex, so that's good.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
from Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

1c. nonhydrogenated margarine, at room temperature
1 1/4 c. sugar
1 tbsp. molasses
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. bakinig soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips (My note: I'm using Ghiradelli. If you're going to share, you should use the good stuff! Heck, you should use the good stuff for yourself too.)

Preheat oven to 350. Cream together the margarine and sugar until fluffy. Add the molasses and vanilla. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls spaced a little over 2 inches apart onto ugreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until ever-so-slightly browned. Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
I'll tell you how it goes. :)
