Let It Snow!!

Being old is no fun. For the last twenty years of my life, snow meant an abundance of glorious things! When I was very young it meant no school, snowmen, snowball fights, hot chocolate and ear-muffs (what, they were pretty sweet). In college it meant no class and copious amounts of alcohol (not as sweet as the ear-muffs). Now it means being irritated that you can’t get to work,yoga, and the store because the roads are clogged up and your car is a wuss.

This can all be fixed by some good old vegan baking. Last night my friend Alex and I made Veganomicon’s wheat-free chocolate chip cookies. Alex is gluten free  and I am a vegan, which makes us a pain in the ass to invite to dinner. However, these cookies were scrumptious. We added an extra 1/4 cup of non-dairy milk because the dough seemed a bit crumbly at first, and the result was a perfectly chewy cookie, which is surprising considering they were gluten free.We also added coconut, because coconut improves nearly everything. We only seemed to get about half as many as the recipe predicted, most likely because I couldn’t keep my fingers out of the batter. We sat by the fire and dipped them in coconut milk and had ourselves a good time. I suggest you go do the same….go on now!

    Heh. I know what you mean. I might be dropping gluten from my diet too. As if my family didn’t mutter about how difficult I was to cook for already.

    Where might I find your recipe? Sounds delicious!

  3. When I made those cookies they were completely flat and not the slightest bit chewy, but still completely awesome (my husband didn’t like them though, but hey, more for me). Maybe I should try them again in hopes of getting puffy, chewy ones, even at the risk that I might not get to eat them all this time?
