Debi & Gabriele’s Tofu Chocolate Rosemary Cookies. These unique treats combine House Foods Premium or Organic Tofu Soft with rosemary, chocolate chips and walnuts for a spin on the traditional that will definitely sweeten up your sweetheart!
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp dried rosemary, crushed, plus more for sprinkling
½ package (7 oz) House Foods Premium or Organic Tofu Soft, patted dry
1 large egg
¾ cup granulated sugar
½ cup canola oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
4 oz 60% bittersweet chocolate, chopped
4 oz semi sweet chocolate, chopped
½ cup chopped toasted walnuts
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper or a silicone-baking mat.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and rosemary. Set aside.
Add the tofu, egg, sugar, oil, and vanilla to the bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth.
Combine the tofu mixture with the dry ingredients and stir well (batter will be thick). Once smooth, stir in the chocolate and nuts. Lay out a 24-inch sheet of parchment paper. Spread the dough across the middle (leaving about four inches on each side of the dough to twist) then roll up the dough into a log, twisting the ends of the parchment to close.
Place in the freezer to firm up for at least 1 hour.
Slice the dough with a serrated knife into ½ inch rounds, place on the sheet tray, patting into perfect rounds, if necessary, then sprinkle the tops lightly with more rosemary. Bake for 14 minutes, until set, and lightly golden around the edges.
