Snickerdoodle Vegan Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar
Little man and I had a wonderful day today shopping with my dad. First, we stopped at Costco to pick up some essentials like quinoa, olive oil, agave, and such. They have quite a few great organic finds and Dad even found organic cotton pajamas for the little guy. After Costco, we went over to the nearest mall to look around. Little man’s feet have been growing, so I was checking out the kid’s shoes and found a plaid canvas pair I thought were cool and Dad thought were hideous. Since Dad wasn’t a fan, I picked out a pair of black canvas high tops to try on him as well. I put the “ugly” plaid shoe on Little Man’s left foot and was going to put the black high top on the right, but he was having none of that. He grabbed the other plaid canvas shoe and demanded I help him into it. I kept trying to get him to try on the other pair also, but he wasn’t about to let me take those plaid shoes off his feet. He’s never asserted his preference as far as personal style, so it was actually kind of neat to see him fall for a pair of shoes! We were both like, “Well, I guess we’re getting those!” The shoes turned out to be only $6; I guess the kid has an eye for style and a good deal. He also made it out of the mall with a “pillow pet”- a bee he named “Hair”. I’d never even heard of them until my little cousin showed me hers, but kids were forming a line to buy these things! Thank you, Dad, for a great day!
I came home to clean up the house and do a little baby-proofing for the one year old I”m going to be watching tomorrow. It’s only been a year and a half since mine was that age, but things change so fast. I always start a new “cookbook of the week” on Sundays, and since I did’t quite have time to fix a nice meal tonight, I’m going to go with cookies. You can’t go wrong with vegan cookies! We all know Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero have some sort of magical-vegan-recipe-creating powers, but they really take the cake…errr, cookies… with Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. Between that and Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World, they really deserve some sort of vegan gold medal (Do we have those?). I firmly believe everyone should own these two cookbooks, whether you’ve been vegan a day or 50 years, because even if you don’t eat much of the sweet stuff, chances are there is going to be a bake sale or a pot luck where you’re asked to bring a dessert. And someone you know is bound to have a birthday eventually!
Tonight’s cookies are Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar‘s City Girl Snickerdoodles (page 46). Isa and Terry confess Snickerdoodles are rather new to them, but they were definitely one of my favorite cookies growing up, and this recipe is perfect. They even glammed them up with a little glitzy decorator sugar, silver in my case. I can’t say I’ve ever considered the snickerdoodle a pretty cookie, but these are sparkly!
