I’ve been really super busy lately (it’s finals week!) and haven’t been able to blog too much. Still, I’ve managed to come up with a few new recipes in the past couple weeks.
Here is a link to a post I made on the PPK forums with recipes for Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, Autumn Clouds Pumpkin Chocolate Chip, PBJ Thumbprints, and Crispy Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. All have gone through the testing process and the testers have adored these recipes (thank you, testers! <3).
They’re homemade too!
I wasn’t thinking these were going to turn out, but they did, and I’m so excited! So many possibilities!
The trick is to make them really thin, fold, then let cool completely while resting on a narrow wine glass to hold their shape. It works perfectly!
Crispy Swirly Pinwheel Cookies with Pink Sugar
Cranberry Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cookies
“Real” Nutter Butters are vegan, but homemade is even better! These are crispy and peanut buttery like the real thing, but have more flavor and no hydrogenated oils or preservatives.
Peanut Butter Cups
(I’m going to post the recipe here soon! The ratio of filling to chocolate is a little off, so once that is fixed, the recipe will be here.)
Peanut Butter Cookie Crumbles
…or anywhere else!
Let me preface this post by saying this was a complete joke and I have no intention of putting this recipe in the book.
As I said on the PPK forums, the conversation went something like this:
“…cookies inspired by drinks for the book”
“Bloody mary cookies!!”
“Ew, that sounds terrible!!”
“I know, but I’m going to do it!”
And I did.
Here it goes!
So I did not go all out this Thanksgiving. I made a couple of batches of cookies to bring to my grandma’s and that was that.
I made the Autumn Clouds Pumpkin Cookies (not pictured) and Candy Cane Oreos! The oreos were enough work and I was exhausted.
The day after Thanksgiving was a ton of fun. I went to Fur Free Friday in Chicago with a few friends and it was awesome! Very cold, but lots of fun. I haven’t found many photos from the protest yet, but I’m sure they’ll be up soon.
A couple Sundays ago, I found a Dominick’s food catalog with this on the cover:
It’s two double chocolate cookies sandwiched around some peppermint candy cane ice cream.
I can already envision a vegan version of this and it’ll be even better!
Cinnamon Roll Cookies are amazing! Garrick is ingenious for coming up with this recipe.
It took me four batches of these to not mess them up (all my fault), but I’m so glad I finally worked these out because they are so good and a huge hit with everyone I shared them with.
Also, we have a Flickr Photo Pool up and running for cookie photos! Feel free to join and add photos of cookies from our recipes. The book isn’t out yet of course, but if you make cookies from recipes I’ve blogged and take photos, don’t hesitate to add them. Then when the book is out, it’ll be cookie photoextraveganza!
The book will most definitely have a “Cookies Inspired by Drinks” category.
Here’s what we have so far.
Root Beer Float Cookies
Apple Cider Cookies
