Behold, Irish Whiskey Cremes
I hope you can handle this oncoming sweet food porn extravaganza. I hope you like cookies.
It’s time to collect the photos and memories of the past two years’ worth of recipe testing for the latest Post Punk Kitchen authors classic: Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar by Isa Chandra Moskowtiz and Terry Hope Romero.
Testing for this book happened along with testing for Vegan Brunch, and I’m currently testing for Isa’s current project, a weight loss cookbook! Go figure, after cupcakes and cookies.
I adored recipe testing once again for these ladies, and bombarding everyone I know with cookies during the process. Check out the cute tester photos in the back! Not mine, I totally missed the thread on this possibility, or you would have seen one of my cats sniffing a cookie…

Once again, the Irish Whiskey Cremes
These are near and dear to me and Evan.
Also, a catalyst in my-possibly-being-allergic-to-hazelnuts-worries…

Chocolate Chip Cookies (with vegan white chocolate chips)
Off on a journey!

Espresso Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Plate of VCIYCJ cookies from a benefit dinner
Nutty Wedding Cookies, powdered sugar station
Banana Oatmeal Cookies
Chocolate Fudgey Oatmeal Cookies
And look, it’s Terry! With an adorable apron working on a cookie photo shoot for the book.
I don’t think I can pick a favorite. Or favorites.
The Citrus Glitters, Irish Whiskey Cremes, Milanos and Cranberry White Chocolate Biscotti stick out in my mind – but then there’s the Black & White! I grew up with those cookies!
In short, if you like cookies of the vegan persuasion, you should get this book.
