5 cookbooks in 5 days, 5: Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar




Whew- we have come to the final chapter of our 5 cookbook reviews in 5 days. I'm ending the series with a little book called Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. Remember a little book about vegan cupcakes that came out a few years ago? And now we can't imagine a world without cupcakes? Well, it's time for cookies to get the same treatment. From the simple and old-fashioned, to the innovative, this book has tons and tons of recipes. There's even a section for wholesome cookies! I mean, come ON.


These have been all the talk with the kids these days- Mexican chocolate snickerdoodles. You think they'll be good. Then they turn out even better than that.


Lazy samoas. The Girl Scout recipe, simplified, veganized, and awesomerized.


Agave trailblazers- chock full of nuts and other goodies, but not too sweet.


And finally, these Irish Creme Kisses, delicious cookies that get a kick from just a hint of Irish whiskey. When I lived in the U.K., I may or may not have developed a thing for Irish whiskey...



And it may or may not have gotten a little out of hand...

Anyway... you can go here to get some sample recipes from the book- including the Mexican Snickerdoodles!

And, check out the other 4 cookbook reviews from this past week:

Hmmm....I wonder if you can make them with Scotch?

I already know that Scotch comes in handy for removing ticks.

Just in case you're ever stranded at Balmoral or somewhere and need to know this.

I just finally caved and bought this book! The irish creme were the ones to tip me over the edge. Jameson in cookies sounds like a wonderful idea...

Hooray for Vegan Cookies!

Every time I go to buy this at Borders, it's sold out. Grrrrr!

Jackie said...

If it is half as good as their cupcakes I am sure the cookies are yummy.

LOL at you and Jameson. I haven't actually had it since I gave up Irish coffee's due to the cream on them. Now prefer a brandy coffee as tastes good black.
