Love these cookies. I exchanged 1/2 C of the regular flour for wheat flour and used regular firm tofu. First batch came out a bit thinner than I'd like. Easy fix: keep dough in fridge for 20 minutes before baking.

These cookies are awesome and they do taste like bakery cookies. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!! :) I wanted to add that these are also good made with whole wheat flour and you can use firm regular tofu (the kind in water like Nasoya, Frieda's etc.) if you don't have silken on hand. I like this recipe because it is adaptable and the cookies are always wonderful and you would never guess that they are vegan, and I can make them whenever I want since I have the ingredients on hand most of the time.
