holiday baking, the vegan way

Nothing gets me in the holiday spirit like baking lots of cookies. And I had the perfect excuse, too; the Hill Country Weavers crew had a Sugar Share last weekend with everyone contributing their favorite recipes. And here I was with a newly purchased Kindle edition of Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar and time to kill because the semester was over...

I started with a classic: chocolate chip. I tend to underbake cookies because I like them mooshy, but I think the sugar didn't quite carmelize enough. They were quick to be eaten, though.

These really were the pièce de résistance. Like biting into Reece's Pieces in cookie form. I have no idea how to get them to look like the picture in the book, but I don't really care to be honest. They were ridiculously delicious. Yes, were. Couldn't keep them around for long...

These were a big hit, even though I didn't make them all look cookie-shape because I couldn't be bothered. I got 3.5 dozen out of the recipe somehow. And they are so good. Perfect breakfast cookie, if you're like Kyle and eat cookies for breakfast. Well, he used to at least. I bet he'd approve of these hearty cookies as a breakfast option.

Recipes will be shared on the KnitBuzz blog eventually. But I highly, highly recommend getting Isa Morowitz's cookie book. 100 cookie recipes. I'll be working my way through them all, just like I am with Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.
