Vegan Thanksgiving & Cookie Baking

.  Since Neil is heading north to New Brunswick next week we won’t be having vegan Thanksgiving so we enjoyed it yesterday with two of my girlfriends, Monica and Laura. After we shared vegan Thanksgiving we spent the remainder of the afternoon in the kitchen baking cookies from Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. 

Celebration Roast, Cumin Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes and Green Bean Casserole

Already to bake!

We made the Blackstrap Gingersnaps first; I received a sample NuNuaturals NuStevia Baking Blend and we decided to try it out with these cookies instead of sugar.


Yeah! Gingersnaps!

Look mom greasy hands!

City Girl Snickerdoodles

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows

All of these cookies enjoyed with a nice cup of Boulevards Organics Dairy-Free Hot Chocolate

We also made some Lazy Samoas (not photographed) which were delicious and just like the caramel delights I enjoyed as a girl scout.  The girls and I really loved this cookbook and found that all the recipes were fun and yet easy.  A few things we really loved were that all the cookies were baked at 350F and that all took 8min to 12min which was great especially when baking 4 different kinds. I really loved all the cookies I have to say it’s a toss up between the Chocolate PB and the Snickerdoodles for my favorite.

  1. Mmm. There are some seriously good cookies in that book!

  2. that’s so cool you guys celebrated early & together. and celebrating with friends is also fantastical, especially when followed by cookie madness & hot chocolate. i don’t know that i could think of a better combination for one awesome day!

    p.s. – that’s pretty sweet that the cookie recipes are consistant in their temperature & time. i love it!

  3. I’m impressed you made all those cookies AFTER the meal! I usually don’t want to look at food for a while after cooking Thanksgiving dinner. 🙂 Everything looks so delicious.

  6. Yummy! I think that is one of the books on my wishlist! We have kind of been substituting our own vegan ingredients in recipes, but I would love to just make one out of a book!
