Last week I decided I wanted to send some cookies to one of my favorite cousins, Halley.
Here she is with her fiance, Josh. I'm so happy that both my girl cousins have really great fiances.
She eats vegan, and I love that about her because it means I have a food ally in my family for when I don't want to eat meat.
Sad doggies watching Halley and her mom back out of the driveway.
In an unrelated note, I finally got to meet her dog earlier this year - Minnie, the 100 lb great dane (shown here with my Aunt Becky's dog, Phoebe).
Left to right: me, my cousin Jessica, and Halley.
I searched around for a vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe and settled on one from Post Punk Kitchen. It was one of the only ones I could find that didn't involve egg replacer - not that I'm trying to avoid it, exactly, but I didn't have any and I'm not sure yet where to find it. This one turned out to be perfect and I've already made it two other times! I hope they tasted good by the time they reached Halley in Chicago, but you know, stale cookies are good when heated up and dipped in your favorite alterna-milk.
Check out these bad boys. They taste like magic.
Did I mention this recipe only takes one bowl?
Instead of posting the whole thing, I'm just going to link to the recipe. If you're so interested, check out their website. They have a lot of awesome food to share.
