Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Vegan Spelt Cookies

Happy Belated National Peanut Butter Cookie Day! I meant to post this yesterday but got caught up in other things. As for baking the cookies, I made them “spur of the moment” on Tuesday when I found the recipe and realized I had everything in the pantry including some spelt flour which I bought for […]

Coconut Pudding Cookies

If you like your oatmeal cookies thick and kind of soft in the middle, try these.   They don’t spread much, and the pudding keeps them from getting hard.  I made mine in a range of sizes and decided I like them about medium, but next time I might try making them as big as scones! […]

Whole Grain Vegan Baking Cherry Pecan Cookies

I’ve eaten my share of delicious vegan cookies, but last week I baked a batch that just might have been the best ever! The cookies, which are dramatically large and perfect for bake sales, are from a book called Whole Grain Vegan Baking by Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes.  It’s a recipe treasure trove for […]

Macadamia Kiss Cookie

Today’s cookies were baked in honor of our friend Stephanie, who went to Hawaii and brought us back a giant bag of Macadamia Nut Hershey’s Kisses.  Did you even know that such a Kiss existed?  I had no idea, but from what I’ve read you can purchase them in Hawaii and in a few select […]

Double Chocolate Cookies with White Lily

This recipe was a test to see how self-rising flour would work in a double chocolate cookie.  Regular all-purpose flour mixed with baking powder and salt would have been just fine, but I wanted to see if the soft winter wheat used to make White Lily would have any impact on the overall result. The […]

dark chocolate chip oatmeal cookies

These oatmeal cookies might be a little different than what you’re used to.  With more butter and less egg, they’re thick and dense, but still soft in the center.  The ones in this picture are what I’d call regular size, as they’re made with a rounded tablespoon of dough…. But for the second batch, I […]

oatmeal cookies made with instant pudding mix

A lot of people put instant pudding mix in their chocolate chip cookies, but did you know it can also be used in oatmeal cookies? As in the chocolate chip variety, the pudding mix helps keep the inside soft and the outside crisp while adding a little flavor. For today’s batch, I used a combination […]

White Chip & Vodka Cookies

Vodka Cookies

These cookies were a last minute experiment to see what would happen if I put Tito’s Vodka in a batch of white chip cookies. As far as chemistry goes, I’m not sure the vodka really did anything, but it’s always fun to have a secret ingredient, and the cookies were definitely good.   The dough […]
