Stripey Cookies! August 22, 2008

Filed under: Food Talk — Kala @ 6:01 pm


When I saw the recipe for yummy looking stripey cookies on Have Cake Will Travel today, I knew I had to have them.  You see, it makes a tiny batch (only five cookies) and we’re almost out of all sort of baking supplies so these were perfect.  I really wanted to make the recipe just as it was written, but we were low on margarine so I had to use 2TB of marg. and 2TB of non-hydrogenated shortening instead of all margarine.  I also had to add a little more liquid, but I usually do.


It’s a great, easy recipe and the cookies came out super yummy.  But the true test for all baked goods is how tempting they are during the photo shoot:

Its my turn to playing along with the Vegan’s Hundred posted on the Bittersweet.  I’ve only bolded things that I’ve had vegan versions of, I have crossed out the booze due to the edge and sauerkraut because I can’t get past the odor. –Shane
