Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar
A new favorite cookbook from 2010 is “Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.” My daugther has an allergy to eggs, dairy and soy so we frequently turn to vegan recipes for perfected recipes that exclude eggs and dairy. This cookbook has been amazing, we have enjoyed most of the recipes from it. An added perk to cooking without eggs is my daughter can sneak bites of the dough, lick the bowl clean and we don’t have to worry about raw eggs.
For those looking for a few 100% shelf stable, food storage, recipes to have on had- these recipes are great. All made from 100% shelf stable ingredients.
Here are a few of our favorites from the book:
Chocolate Chip Cookies. Not amazing, can't beat a traditional chocolate chip cookie made with real butter. But the best I have found for being dairy and egg free.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows. These are the dairy free, egg free version of Magic in The Middle Cookies. A rich chocolate outside with a peanut butter surprise in the middle. My daughter refers to these as "chocolate squishies." The dairy/egg free version has a softer dough that is much easier to work with. They are both awesome cookies, but overall I prefer this dairy/egg free version. It's perfect and could easily be served at party without anyone questioning the ingredients.
Lazy Samoas are the dairy free, egg free version of Girl Scout Samoa Cookies. The original ones are a TON of work, really an all day project but well worth it. This dairy/egg free version is super quick and really, really good. The shortbread bottom is skipped to save time but I still LOVE the overall result.
