Salted Chocolate Cookies
Salt and sugar, a wonderful combo. Have you ever had a salted caramel or salted chocolate ice cream? It's delicious, I had some from scoops (they offer 4 rotating vegan flavors) and it was delicious, and inspired this cookie recipe. Don't worry, they aren't incredibly salty! It's just that extra little kick of salt that really brings out the flavors, and tastes delicious.
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup vegan margarine (earth balance is best)
1/2 cup granulated sugar sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Cream "butter" and sugar, add molasses. Sift dry ingredients and combine with the wet ingredients. Let dough chill in the fridge 15 mins, then form and bake. Make sure to take these out of the oven when they are still very soft, don't worry, they set up when they cool.
