No-Bake Raspberry Coconut Snoball Cookies

I've taken a favorite recipe from my childhood - Raspberry Coconut Snoballs - and turned them into a healthier no-bake cookie. On a day that was starting to feel a little too serious, there's nothing like raspberry and creamy coconut in a no-bake cookie form to create a bit of fun.

Vegan Peanut Butter Cheddar Cheese Cookies

Craziness is defined as someone who is mentally deranged in a wild, aggressive manner...or who makes these cookies. It was risky giving these cookies a try. I imagined the waste of money involved in the ingredients and the time that went into making them. But sometimes a little risk can pay huge dividends...or can produce excellent cookies. I'm happy to say that is the case with these cookies which may now be my favorite of all time.

Shamrock Sugar Cookies

It's St. Patty's Day and time to celebrate. Right now I can't think of a better way to do that than having these Shamrock Sugar Cookies with a Minty Chocolate Ganache Filling.

Vegan Chocolate Cream Pie with Coconut Cookie Crust

Have you heard the notion that we live our lives in chapters? I'm thrilled with today's chapter in my life because I'm calling it my "Vegan dreamy, chocolate creamy" chapter. Yes, going vegan is not without it struggles...but it's not without its triumphs as well. And Vegan Chocolate Cream Pie with a Coconut Cookie Crust? That's seriously what I refer to as a triumph!

Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies bring together two seemingly diverse flavors, coconut and oatmeal, with a little chocolate added for good measure. Patty Griffin sings about making pies as a way of connecting socially in the kitchen. I think I'll write a song called Making Cookies because it's my favorite thing to do when guests come over, either invited or spur of the moment. In fact, keeping some of this dough in the freezer should be on the must-do list!

Dark Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

I think these might be the best vegan cookies. Why? Because they're rich. Decadent. Dark chocolate shortbread cookies with creamy ganache filling in the middle. Somehow eating just one is enough. You may not walk away from eating one of these cookies feeling stuffed. But you can walk away feeling content. And that means a lot this time of year when your "to do" list is exponentially higher than your "done" list.

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

I'm preparing my Vegan New Year's Party Plans and beginning with this show-stopping little recipe for Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites. That's because I want to prepare finger foods that are easily prepared ahead of time so I can enjoy the party myself while feeling certain that everyone (vegan and non-vegan) is enjoying what's being served. You can have no doubt about that when there's peanut butter and chocolate involved!
