From the authors of the excellent—and cheeky—Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World comes this winning collection of vegan cookie recipes that should appeal to vegans and nonvegans alike (if those nonvegans are willing to seek out a few specialty ingredients—the authors helpfully provide suggestions and resources—and make the unfortunate substitution of margarine for butter). Without a hint of preachiness, and with plenty of sass, the book delivers veganized versions of traditional cookies such as New York City's black and white cookies, Pepperidge Farm Milanos (called minonos) and lemon bars, about which the authors explain, “For too long we vegans have had our faces pressed against the glass of the dessert case and longing for the sweet tartness of those shimmering lemon bars. Well, you can stop scaring the staff of that bakery.” There are also sophisticated confections like toasted almond cookies with fleur de sel and macadamia lace cookies. While there are cookies that sound suspiciously healthy, such as fruity oaty bars and whole wheat chocolate chip cookies, decadent recipes like caramel pecan bars and starry fudge shortbread, filled with non-dairy chocolate ganache, show that you can be vegan and still indulge in delicious treats.
