White Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 C vegetable shortening
1 1/2 C brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 C unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla
2 C all purpose flour
2/3 C cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
~2 C  white chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Cream the shortening and sugar by hand
  • Add applesauce and vanilla and beat by hand until well combined
  • Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt and mix until well combined
  • Fold in chocolate chips
  • Drop 1 Tbsp of dough for each cookie onto ungreased cookie sheet, about 1 – 2 inches apart
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350°F
  • Remove from oven and let cool on pan for about 2-3 minutes
  • Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack

These cookies come together quickly and easily; you only need to use one bowl!  There are no eggs and the only dairy is in the white chocolate chips, so by swapping them out for a non-dairy chip or just omitting them entirely, you can make the recipe dairy free as well.

They are very soft, chewy, and chocolatey.  We love them at our house and I hope you enjoy them too!

God bless
