Comedian Gary Gulman did a sketch years ago about cookies. (It's hilarious, you should look it up.) At the end of it Gulman expresses how much he dislikes sugar cookies because they are always trying to be something else and without changing they are just boring sugar cookies. If there is to be a close second to the sugar cookie it would definitely be the chocolate chip cookie. It has been reinvented in a million different ways in a million different recipes...BUT they are never (okay, maybe rarely is a better word) decorated. I'm changing it up and decorating chocolate chip cookies for Halloween!
This recipe happens to be gluten-free, but don't worry, all the flavor is there and they are still delicious. Super soft and chewy too!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Preheat oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl combine ground chia and water. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer cream butter and almond butter. Add chia egg and sugar. I only use 1/4 cup sugar but you could add more if you like your cookies sweeter.
Add remaining dry ingredients and mix to combine.
