Chocolate Chip Cookies (with cooked eggs)

Recipe adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything’s blog for Hard Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies: http://www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com/2011/04/hard-boiled-egg-chocolate-chip-cookies.html

I first had chocolate chip cookies made with cooked eggs over Halloween. A friend made these amazing chocolate chip cookies for our holiday party for the kids. Making an outstanding classic like chocolate chip cookies is worth inquiry. She revealed that they were made with cooked eggs. She simple pops the beaten eggs in the microwave for a few minutes until cooked (which is what I did), but all the recipes I found online use hard-boiled eggs. The result of the cooked eggs is a thicker cookie that is the PERFECT texture. After trying everything to get thicker cookies from my regular flat chocolate chip cookies, I was anxious to try this recipe.  The result was fabulous. I think I will cook my eggs from here on out! Don’t worry, the taste of the cookie is not altered. It’s definitely worth trying.

Ingredients
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
1/2 cup applesauce
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 t. vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten and cooked (scrambled over the stove-top or heated in the microwave)
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions
Make eggs; set aside to cool. In a large bowl, stir butter, applesauce and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly, stir the dry ingredients into the large bowl. Add chocolate chips. Drop spoonful of dough onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.
