Tips for making Eggless Sprinkle Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
Use Soft Butter
Using soft butter is crucial in soft and chewy cookies that have eggs or that are eggless. So, just like Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies require soft butter, these Sprinkle Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies do too.
Make sure to leave butter out on the counter and let it soft naturally at room temperature. If you must soften butter in the microwave, only do 10 seconds per 1/2 cup at a time, even if you have to do multiple intervals. I hate softening butter in the microwave as it melts pockets of the butter at a time and doesn’t soften evenly like it does when it sits out. So, plan to bake cookies ahead of time and soften your butter the right way.
Cream Butter & Sugars
Make sure to take the time to cream the butter and sugars together. Because there are no eggs in these cookies, we want to add air into the butter to create a great texture when the cookies are baked. Creaming the butter and sugars together will take about 5 minutes, you can set a timer, and then check your cookie dough then. How do you know if it’s creamed? The butter and sugar mixture will look noticeably lighter in color and it will be whipped, almost like a whipped cream cheese texture vs a regular cream cheese.
I add milk into these cookies for fat and flavor in place of eggs. If you don’t want to use traditional cow’s milk, you can use coconut milk, almond milk, pistachio milk, or oat milk!
I use dark chocolate here, but you can use semi sweet, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. Whatever you want, you can easily swap it out!
Scooping or Balling
You can use a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop for this recipe, or you can portion them out and roll with your hands. Either way will work. If you know me, then you know I loathe cookie scoops as I am terrible at using them, so I always use my hands! But whatever works best for you is what you should do. Watch my struggle below.
Refrigerating helps with two things in this recipe. It helps with cookie spread so they don’t spread too much in the oven. But it also helps them become even more chewy as the fat has time to chill in the fridge. So, chill for at least 1 hour, but you can also chill overnight!
Bake Until Golden Brown
Make sure to bake these cookies until they are golden brown on the bottoms and edges. Trust me, they will still be incredibly soft and chewy thanks to the creamed butter, milk, and cream cheese! But, if you like a really doughy cookie, you can bake for a few minutes less.
Make sure to store these in an airtight container. While they will stay softer than cookies with eggs, they still should be stored properly. Use an airtight container like a Tupperware or zipbag!
Ingredients for Sprinkle Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here.
