Some new cookies… [and a recipe]

Hello everyone!
I’ve finished the cookie inventing and writing parts of this project, so keep checking back for updates on the book in the near future!

In the meantime, click here to look at the full collection of cookie photos.
And if you haven’t friended vegan cookies on MySpace yet, here it is!

As promised, some recent creations:

Vanilla Sandwich Cookies

Super Cute Turtle Cookies

Chocolate and Vanilla Jam Thumbprints

And a recipe! All the posts in which I include recipes are tagged with “recipe” under the “category” headline on the right of the screen. Here they all are:

Chocolate Thumbprints
Makes 18 cookies

Aww, thumbprint cookies are so cute. With a fudgy texture and deep chocolate flavor, these are not your average thumbprint cookie. You can use any kind of jam you like. Of course they’re good with your typical strawberry or raspberry jam, but there are so many possibilities like peach or blueberry!

1/3 cup canola oil
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup soy milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt

3-4 tablespoons jam, your choice

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix the oil, sugar, soy milk, and extracts.
Sift in the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt and stir until completely mixed. Add a bit more flour if the dough looks wet.

Shape into tablespoon-sized balls and place on a lightly oiled or parchment-lined baking sheet (do not flatten) and bake for 9 minutes.

Remove from oven and using your thumb, press into each cookie, making a thumbprint. Put about 1/2 teaspoon jam on each cookie. Return to the oven and bake for 3 more minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool and enjoy!

  2. Wow!
    We are not a vegetarian family, but have just found out that our little boy is probably dairy allergic (we in a food trial now). Pretty much every snack/cookie on the shelves has some sort of milk/milk protein in it, so it’s been hard to shop for him. I did find one vegan cookie that’s pretty good, but not “great”. So excited to see a bunch of options I can make myself for him!

  3. Thanks for your recipes! I’ve been searching for a long time for cookie recipes for my 17-m.o. daughter who is allergic to eggs, yeast and dairy. I’m so glad I stumbled upon your website. Thanks again!

  4. those Turtle Cookies are the cutest things EVER! Can’t wait to the recipe book, any chance you know when it will be published (Inc. UK)?

  5. Hi
    Thank you very much. I think I want to make it without jam. Do I need to increase the sugar? If yes by how much amount?

    Thanks again
