Her cookie recipe took me only about 5 minutes to whip together (really). When I was done setting the dough on my cookie sheet, I looked at the mixing bowl and it suddenly occurred to me that there are no eggs in the dough, so there's no reason I can't lick the spoons... and spoon liking commenced. I made a couple of adjustments to the original recipe: I used Almond milk for one of my wet ingredients, I also exchanged one tablespoon of the milk for the juice of half a medium sized lime, and I added lime zest. I felt like lime would give these a little boost and summeriness, maybe make them a little refreshing with some lemonade. I also kept my batch in the oven longer. Her recipe instructs to take them out after 7 minutes, but mine were so underdone, I couldn't move them from the mat to the cooling rack without smooshing them. I like crunchy cookies anyway.
