Makes about 18 cookies
Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease baking sheets or line them with baking parchment.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and nuts. In another bowl, whisk together the margarine, egg replacer, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture and mix well to combine.
Using a tablespoon, drop the batter 2 inches apart onto the baking sheets. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the bottoms of the cookies begin to brown.
Notes: I've used the ENER-G egg replacer, and Bob's Egg Replacer. I mix 1 tablespoon of the powdered stuff with water as per the package directions, then add it to the recipe. I'm concerned that Earth Balance margarine maybe doesn't work so well as the dough was very crumbly and I had to add more oil to it.
The bone-chilling scream split the warm summer night in two, the first
half being before the scream when it was fairly balmy and calm and
pleasant, the second half still balmy and quite pleasant for those who
hadn't heard the scream at all, but not calm or balmy or even very nice
for those who did hear the scream, discounting the little period of time
during the actual scream itself when your ears might have been hearing it
but your brain wasn't reacting yet to let you know.
