The Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my own personal recipe for Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies. I'll brag right now and say they are DELICIOUS!! 
2 cups unbleached flour (or bleached if you want)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup vegan chocolate or carob chips
               (semi-sweet chocolate chips are TYPICALLY vegan friendly)
1 cup raw sugar (or regular sugar, but most regular white sugar is not vegan-friendly)
1/2 cup vegetable shortening (Spectrum preferred)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup almond, rice or other alternative milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together flour, baking powder and salt in large mixing bowl.
Pulverize the raw sugar in the food processor if you'd like.
Then cream together the vegetable shortening, raw sugar, vanilla and alternative milk.
Add the "wet" ingredients to the "dry" ingredients. Blend it together well but don't overwork it, then add in the chocolate or carob chips.
Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten them to look like a cookie. Place them about an inch apart. Bake for 10 minutes then take them out of the oven and flip the cookies over with a spatula. Then bake for 3 more minutes.
Let cool for 5 minutes then devour them.

All my non-vegan family members love these cookies and ask me to make them for them. I hope you enjoy them.
