Ode to Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar Testing

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…

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.

  1. Now that’s what I call food porn…wow. I was going to hold off on this one (since I already own two vegan dessert cookbooks), but I think my holidays wont be complete unless I have the recipes for these cookies.

  2. Oh my goodness my mouth is watering! I want to steal all these cookies! I really want to get this book. I think I might splurge, especially with the holidays coming. I might have to do some baking, I think! Ooh, I’m excited!

    Congratulations on your new site! I added it to my RSS reader! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Are those BUTTERSCOTCH chips I spy in your “chocolate chip” cookies next to the Mocha Mamas? Or is it possible that they are PEANUT BUTTER chips? Please do share what those orange morsels are and where you got them? YUM!

  4. I have this, and I think the overwhelming number of delicious options has actually kept me from making anything yet. I know, crazy. Must get on that….perhaps I’ll make some to bring to my friend this weekend. She is having a baby today, she’ll need it.

  5. Oh Jesus Jess…you’re killin’ me with all this cookie delicious-ness. I don’t have the book yet, but it’s so on my Xmas list! I need those sweet potato blondies…and the biscotti…and the glitters…oh my!

  6. My absolute favorite of all the ones listed are the (i know, i’m boring) the chocolate chip! They are the best classic cookie, and nothing compares to homemade… Yum yum.

  7. I’m excited to try these for Thanksgiving! I’ve decided I’m going vegan to my family.. I usually just deal with their crap about Turkey Day, but this year, it’s only Seitan in my house! I can’t wait for their reactions!
