Just Call Me a Cookie Addict, Will You?


Caraque Cookie Pastires

These pretty cookies were a test recipe for Celine and Joni’s cookbook. The recipe made six, and Tim and I ate all six in less than a day. Ooooooops. These are big shortbread-like cookies with chocolatey goodness, icing, and a fun candy on top. The devouring scenario went something like this:

(talking to self) “Okay, just one more bite.”

Hand reaches into fridge, removes lid from tupperware, takes a cookie out, and chomps happily away.

Cookie goes back into tupperware, lid goes back on tupperware, I leave the kitchen.

Five minutes pass.

(talking to self again) “Seriously, just one more bite.” (The bites growing bigger each time…)

Hand goes into tupperware, cookie disappears, the lid stays off, five minutes pass… See what I mean?! These cookies reminded me of Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies, only so much better. They are buttery, chocolatey, crispy, awesome. Oh, and did I mention they are easy to make? Now you must buy the 500 Vegan Recipes cookbook when it makes its way to your nearest bookstore! You just must!!!
