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.

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 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...
Cherry Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cherry Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m not an obsessive Isa devotee or anything, but I am glad to give credit where it’s due, and seriously, these cherry chocolate chocolate chip cookies — slightly adapted from the PPK — are fantastic.
Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

For years, this was hands-down my favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I brought these cookies to bake sales, I mailed them to sad friends, I hung out in my room with a spoon and a bowl of uncooked dough.
Vegan Cowboy Cookies

Vegan Cowboy Cookies

Don’t get hung up on their lousy name; cowboy cookies are actually really delicious. I brought three dozen of these giant cookies on a flight to Iowa once, and my two brothers devoured every last one in six hours flat. Another time I brought them on a three hour road trip to Portland, Maine, and...
