The Not Really M&M Cookies

(vegan and not healthy)

2 cups of flour
1 Tbs cornstarch

¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
¾ “butter” (I use earth balance)
1 NOT-egg (either flax egg or the Follow your heart “eggless egg)
1 tsp vanilla
1 bag of Unreal chocolate gems (I used the peanut ones)
+ about 2 oz of dairy free mini chocolate chips

Mix flour, cornstarch, salt, baking soda in medium bowl
In separate bowl mix the sugars, add in melted butter, and “egg”. Stir well, add vanilla.
Slowly pour the dry mixture into the wet, stirring as you go.
Finally add in chocolate pieces.
Refrigerate about ½ hour until it firms up a little.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

On baking pan, spoon about 1 Tbs of cookie dough, leave about  2 inches between scoops (they will grow).
Bake 10 minutes, allow to cool on cooking rack.

Salt and pepper to taste
