An Experiment in Cookie Desperation

You ever get the feeling that if you don’t get to eat something you will go crazy? For me I needed chocolate chip cookies. Honestly I needed any cookies (except oatmeal raisin). Normally that is no problem. A little butter, eggs, salt, brown sugar……and then it hit me; I have a lot of problems this time.


I have no butter or margarine. Ok no problem, I have some shortening spray that worked before. Now I just need…no brown sugar…..Ok I know how to use honey instead not a problem. Cookies are good to go! And then I realized I have no baking soda only baking powder…Ok ok so just double the powder and leave out the salt. I WANT COOKIES! But then I have no eggs, and I hate mayo in my cookies. These stopped being cookies long ago. Maybe I should give up. Then I find AppleSauce!These will either be the amazing or absolutely horrible.

The dough taste really good. It’s a little different in taste (you can taste the honey sweetness instead of sugar sweetness) but, it taste promising. I put them in the oven and do a little prayer to the cookie gods. And this is how they came out.


I know you aren’t suppose to experiment with baking and use exact measurements. And despite my good intentions…I broke both rules. It was worth it though they are soooo¬†yummy. The sugar/Honey may not be very good for me but still…I want to eat them all! Go ahead and experiment! indulge your “yum senses” (yes that is a technical term).
