I Ran Out of Eggs Egg-Free Cookies

Makes: 18 cookies
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 9 minutes per batch
Cost: $1.05 without chocolate stuff; $1.65 with chocolate stuff
(butter: .60, sugars: .30, mayo: .01, flour: .14, chocolate chips: .45, malt balls: .15 on after-Easter sale)

Note: You can make these plain or with chocolate chips or with chocolate chips and Robin's Eggs that you've been hiding in your freezer since Easter for just such a chilly spring day (so I guess these weren't exactly egg free). The malty Robin's Eggs were a really nice compliment to the Egg-Free cookie. In fact, Kip even said we should buy malt balls to use in for our next chocolate chip cookie bender (he did not use the word 'bender,' but I think that's just called denial).

1/2 C (1 stick) butter
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 C chocolate chips
1/2 C malt balls, roughly chopped

Beat butter and sugars. Add mayonnaise and beat. Add vanilla. Sift flour and baking soda together. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Add chocolate chips and malt balls if using.

Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Smash them down just a bit with a wooden spoon or spatula. Bake at 375 for 8-9 minutes or until just barely beginning to brown (for a cookie that is lovely and soft in the middle).
