The Classic But Not So Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!!


Last minute I decide to have friends over for a casual dinner. For appetizers I served Sriracha wings….these wings are always a huge hit. The main course was my Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza.

Now I needed a quick dessert….this is where the classic yet not so classic chocolate chip cookie comes in.

When it comes to baking for me it can be hit or miss. So why not play around with a cookie recipe right before my friends show up.

I don’t know why I keep doing this… could totally backfire one day.

Thankfully today was no that day and the cookies turned out great.

Now I’m going to share the recipe with you.


1 1/3 cup all -purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt
4 Tablespoon organic vegetable shortening
1/2 cup organic brown sugar (DIY Recipe here)
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
1 Tablespoon organic vanilla extract
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chunks
1/2 cup bitter -sweet chocolate chips


In a medium bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl use an electric mixer, mix vegetable shortening, sugars applesauce and vanilla.

Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and mix to evenly combine. Gently fold in the chocolate chips and chunks

Chill dough in the freezer for  10 minutes or place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Once ready to bake, scoop dough using 1-inch scoop and place onto ungreased cookie sheet or line your cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies turn a light golden brown and crisp up around the edges. Do not overbake! Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes.

Transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. Repeat with remaining dough.

This recipe makes 18 cookies.

The cookie in itself is classic, the fact that it’s eggless and has no butter is what makes it not so classic.  I promise you….you won’t miss any of the traditional ingredients.  It will be soft in the center with the crisp outer. Which for me is cookie perfection.

I hope you give this recipe a try and enjoy it as much as my friend’s and I did.


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.
