About

I finally got to bake this week. I try not to have too many sweets in the house, but I have been wanting to try a new vegan cookie recipe that I decided to have something prepared after Ryan returned from rehearsal. He was intrigued by the smell of baking when he arrived home but I would not share what I was doing because I tend to keep things as a surprise.

I later took some of the baked goods to the choral library to have some of the graduate students taste test them and everyone seemed to like them. They were surprised at how good vegan cookies tasted. The cookie itself is a corss between a brownie and a cookie, a bit chewy and a but crunchy. The center is filled with a mixture of peanut butter, agave, and powdered sugar. Make it for your Valentine this weekend and enjoy over a hot cup of coffee!
