Vegan Anginettes

Vegan Anginettes

As many of you know, I live in New Haven, home to the only pizza worth eating, and more Italian-American bakeries than you can shake a stick at. I’ve peered many-a-time into their glass bakery cases, spilling over with all manner of pretty pink, green, brown and white cookies, and cursed the fact that they...
Chocolate Hazelnut Thumbprints

Chocolate Hazelnut Thumbprints

These chocolate hazelnut thumbprint cookies are unsurprisingly delicious yet surprisingly easy to assemble, and the work goes especially quickly if you’re making a batch of my chocolate-filled peanut butter blossoms at the same time. No handmade chocolate kisses required!
Vegan Sugar Cookies

Vegan Sugar Cookies

This recipe is adapted from one that appears in an old Iowa church cookbook called World’s Best Sugar Cookies. Iowan church ladies are known to wax hyperbolic about plenty of things — recipes in these cookbooks for “green salad,” for instance, typically involve neon-hued Jello and no vegetables of any kind. But these cookies are...
Vegan Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Vegan Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

A few months ago, I tried this recipe for “turtle” cookies, and they completely blew my mind. Since that day, I’ve made a dozen variations on that recipe, adjusting ingredients and playing with flavor combinations. This is my oatmeal raisin riff on that recipe.
Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Scented with coconut, vanilla, and butter, these thick and chewy coconut oatmeal cookies are seriously swoon-worthy. If you like macaroons, these cookies are for you.
Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

On my birthday a few years ago, before I lived in New Haven, my mother brought me to Edge of the Woods Market to peruse their bakeshop’s vegan offerings. Among them were giant tahini chocolate chip cookies. The sesame flavor wasn’t bold, but made for a rich, well-rounded cookie, and I left determined to make...
Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies

Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies

While I love a straight forward chocolate chip cookie, I find myself pairing chocolate with warm spices this time of year. These molasses chocolate chip cookies are soft, spicy, and just a touch chewy.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Linzer Heart Cookies

Peanut Butter and Jelly Linzer Heart Cookies

Valentine’s Day is next week, and whether you’re of the cheesy holiday-loving persuasion or the my heart bleeds the darkest blood sort, I’ve got something for you: peanut butter and jelly linzer hearts! This grown-up twist on the classic pairing of PB&J is perfect for those of you who are kids at heart… and for...
Mexican Wedding Cakes

Mexican Wedding Cakes

These cookies are so good that at least three different countries claim them as their own; although I always knew them as Mexican Wedding Cakes, they’re apparently also known as Russian Tea Cakes and Italian Butter Nuts. But as I’m inclined to say: a rose by any other name….
Peanut Butter Blossoms with Vegan Chocolate Kisses

Peanut Butter Blossoms with Vegan Chocolate Kisses

  Peanut butter blossoms are such a cute addition to any cookie tray. And although they’re usually made with chocolate candy centers that contain milk derivatives, they’re really easy to veganize!
Vegan Gingerbread Biscotti

Vegan Gingerbread Biscotti

When it’s cold outside, all I want to do is curl up with a blanket, a book, and a cup of tea. These gingerbread biscotti, from Isa’s VCTOTW, have been a welcome addition to each year’s wintry ritual. Don’t be scared off by the fact that you have to bake them twice; biscotti are really...
Dirt Cake

Dirt Cake

Growing up, my mother always made special cakes for my birthday — cakes so good-looking that I’m sure all of my friends wished they had a mother like mine. Usually this involved copious amounts of painstakingly applied frosting, and, if I was really lucky, some decorative sugar cubes. But my 7th birthday party was a...
