Ingredients

  • 12 tablespoons tablespoons vegan butter, Earth Balance Soy Free Sticks (112 grams)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (100 grams)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (150 grams)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 44 grams of aquafaba about 3 tablespoons, but best to weigh
  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour** (260 grams)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt See note
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 cup oats, old fashioned or quick (optional)
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped (optional)
  • 1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips more if desired

Instructions

  • With an electric mixer,beat the softened vegan butter, both sugars and vanilla until creamy. Beat in the aquafaba.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cream of tartar.
  • Add flour mixture to batter and stir until very well mixed, then stir in the oats, nuts and chocolate chips.
  • Using a medium size cookie scoop, shape dough into 24 balls. Cover and chill for an hour or until ready to use (if you can wait a day, the cookies bake up even nicer with dough that's been chilled 24 hours).
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange cookie dough pieces on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet spacing about 3 inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes (these are better underbaked than over!) or until golden brown around the edges.
  • As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, set reserved Oreo pieces on hot cookie, crème side down to they will adhere. If the cookies have spread during baking, gently push edges inward with inverted tip of a spatula.
  • Let cool until firm enough to remove from baking sheet.

Notes

Note about salt. Since the vegan butter is salted, the cookies only need about 1/4 teaspoon of salt.  They'll also get a little bit of saltiness from the cream of tartar.  
 
Another option is to use 8 tablespoons of vegan butter and 4 tablespoons of your favorite brand of shortening -- Nutiva, Spectrum, Crisco, Carlini
