Vegan MoFo - Quick dessert, quick post
On my way home, I decided to make cookies, since I figured they were something I could knock out between getting home and leaving for dinner. I've never made anything from Kelly Pelosa's The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur, even though I've owned it for a year, so I decided to make something from that. I already knew I wanted to make chocolate chip, so I flipped to that section of the book. I picked a recipe that I liked the look of, only to discover that my applesauce had gone off (I really need to start freezing it in portions). Then I chose another recipe but couldn't decide if I could go ahead and use actual soy yogurt instead of making the fake soy yogurt concoction the recipe calls for (a mixture of soy milk and cornstarch warmed up). By the time I decided I could probably just use soy yogurt, it was too late to make the cookies.
And this is why I'm posting at 11.30pm - I've just finished making the cookies. We got home from dinner, I sat around for a bit trying to decide if I'd rather just make blondies, and then I sucked it up and made the cookies. I finally decided on Kelly's Chocolate Chip Cookies.
The book is packed with recipes I'd like to try, so I'm looking forward to having more time with it. I've already decided to make another recipe for my office Xmas party.
Do you have the book? What's your favourite recipe from it?
