Chocolate [sic] Cardamom Cookies

What do you do when you want to make Chocolate Chip Cardamom Cookies but you have no chocolate chips?  You use cocoa instead.  That's the only thing that's different about this recipe.  You may be surprised to learn that these cookies are also delicious.

Chocolate Cardamom Cookies
(originally adapted from The Joy of Vegan Baking)

3 “eggs” (ener-G egg replacer)
¾ c earth balance, softened
½ c sugar
¾ c brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 ¼ - 1 ½ c white flour
½ c wheat flour
½ c cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp cardamom

1. Preheat oven to 375*.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.  Prepare egg replacer.  Cream butter and sugars.  Add "eggs" and vanilla.
2. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients (flours, cocoa, salt, baking soda, cardamom).  Add dry to wet and mix. 
3. Form cookies into golf-ball-sized balls and place on parchment-lined sheets at least 2 in apart.  Bake for about 14 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom.  Remove from oven and allow to stand until cool before moving cookies.  Makes 2-3 dozen cookies.
