  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 stick butter, soften to room temperature
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp water or milk
  • ½ cup unsweetened chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350F at least 10 minutes prior to baking the cookies.
  • Grease and flour a baking tray or line it with parchment paper.
  • Mix together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt in a bowl. Whisk until well combined and set aside.
  • Place the softened butter in another bowl. Use a standing mixer or wire whisk to beat it until smooth and creamy.
  • Bring in both types of sugar: white and brown. Mix again on medium speed until everything becomes fluffy.

  • If the dough seems soft or sticky or both, don’t worry! Place it in the fridge for about half an hour so the butter inside will harden a bit.
    Mixing chocolate
  • If you don’t have time to wait for the dough to sit in the fridge, just scoop it on the tray, leaving enough space between the butter cookies (about 2 inches) because they will spread while cooking. Otherwise you can make small balls of dough (1-inch size) and also make sure to keep a short distance between them. Flatten them a bit with the back of your hand.
    Scoop on the tray
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Check for the top to be set and the edges slightly golden. Remove immediately from the oven so you don’t overcook them.
  • Leave the eggless chocolate chip cookies in the tray for 5 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. They will set during the cooling process and will reach the desired texture.


  • If you want to make the cookies vegan, replace the butter with vegan butter. Also use almond milk instead of cow milk.
  • There is also the option of cooking gluten-free vegan egg free cookies. The best news is that they won’t be also taste-free! In fact, they remain as delicious as their non-vegan relatives. Instead of all-purpose flour, use a gluten-free flour mix or even gluten-free oat flour. The required quantity will be about 1 ¼ cups gluten-free flour. Be sure to measure it for accurate results.
  • There is the option of making the dough ahead of time. Make small balls out of the dough and place them on a plate. Take the plate to the freezer. Once the dough balls are frozen, transfer to a ziplock bag and keep them inside. they will last there for about six months. When baking, add a few minutes to the cooking time, there is no need to previously defrost them.
  • After baking the eggless cookies, they can be kept at room temperature for about one week if properly stored in an airtight container.
  • You can also freeze these cookies without eggs for up to three months. This is in case there are some left and you want to enjoy them later.
  • Serve the vanilla cookies near your morning coffee, with just a bit of whipping cream on top. Or enjoy them as a snack or dessert. When accompanied with a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream, they will taste divine. Being so small, you may take the butter cookies on a hike or for a family long drive. I’m pretty sure your kids will thank you for that. Haven’t done that, I know from a friend… Just kidding!
  • Anyway, it doesn’t matter how you serve the egg free cookies, just enjoy them!
