Take a 1/2 block of frozen margarine and put it in the microwave for 15 seconds, or until it is softened, NOT melted.
Perfect :) I like to mix my cookies with arm power 😜 but you can mix it in a mixer if you prefer.
Add 3/4 cup of packed brown sugar and cream together!
It should look like this. If the butter is the proper consistency, this step will be no problem to mix by hand.
Add 1 cup of flour and 1/2 tsp of salt. Some people might find the salt to be too much, so you can try to add a pinch at a time. I like mine to have lots of flavor, so I added it all!
Add 1 Tbsp of vanilla. Again, vanilla and salt are just to enhance flavor. I want the most out of my treat, so I added it all. Try 1 tsp at a time for vanilla if you don't want it so strong.
And 1 cup of chocolate chips! I'd prefer to use milk chocolate chips, but semi sweet was all we had :( oh well, it still tastes amazing!
Mix mix mix! It should look somewhat like this.
Now here's the kicker. Since there's no eggs, we need to add water. Add a Tbsp of water, and mix. Keep doing that until you have the consistency you want! I found 1 was plenty.
And there you have it, safe-to-eat cookie dough! Yum! 😋
Store into a container and stick in the fridge until you're ready to eat! I'm gonna snack on it throughout the day :)
WARNING: do NOT bake this. They will not rise properly. I've heard that you can also make these into truffles, which if you ask me, would taste incredible! Enjoy!
