Voila- my husband’s famous chocolate chip cookies recipe, modified to meet your allergy needs. And I do mean that these cookies are famous- at least in our circle. He’s been making these cookies since before we met, and we’ve made a few changes along the way.

There’s no discernible difference between cooking with eggs, or using an egg substitute like Bob’s Red Mill egg replacer. We especially like Bob’s version for being gluten free and legume free. As written, the recipe is egg- free, but can be modified to fit all sorts of allergy needs.

With our children’s allergies, we have made a few modifications through the years. These are just as delicious as a dairy free cookie, using soy-based butterscotch chips and dairy-free butter (we like Earth Balance vegan buttery sticks). Important disclaimer: you can make these with butterscotch and have them be dairy free, or soy free, but you cannot do both. The only dairy free butterscotch chips out there are soy-based. You can, however, make these dairy free and soy free by omitting the butterscotch chips. These are also delicious as a gluten free cookie, using oat flour. See our allergy modifications section below for more ideas.

Another key modification that we’ve made over the years- rest the dough! Cover the cookie dough and put it in the fridge for at least 2 hours. The resting is critical for a few reasons: it helps to solidify the fat and to absorb the moisture into the flour. The result is a chewy, soft, more evenly cooked cookie that holds its shape.

Everyone has their preference, but I prefer these after they have cooled, rather than straight out of the oven. Enjoy
