Vegan Cookie Exchange Party

Who’s ready for a sugar crash?

I was invited to a vegan cookie exchange party recently and it was wonderful. The basic concept is that everyone shows up with a plate of cookies and you hang out and eat a bunch then go home with a variety pack to snack on for the rest of the week. Our generous hostess, veganknitting, made some yummy mac & cheese to share, which was nice since all I ate was sugar for dinner. In a clockwise direction, we have: Pfeffernüsse (with the powdered sugar on top), Green Tea Mint, Cinnamon, Chocolate Mint, Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bees, and Coffee Shortbread. They were all tasty and it was a fun night. The cookies I contributed were the pfeffernüsse and Coffee Shortbread. I used the recipes from My Sweet Vegan. The Pfeffernuesse cookies were awesome and not too anise-y. The shortbread was okay, I think it would be tastier if I rolled it thicker. Thanks for hosting, veganknitting! I love the holidays and all the treats, but it’s difficult eating cookies everyday…my body isn’t used to this much sugar!

    Oh, I love cookie exchanges! I wish it was reasonable to hold such a thing by mail. I hear you about too much sugar, but I think the holidays bring out the evil sugar maniac in me and it’s hard to stop.
    My mom and I always used to make spritz cookies with a cookie press and differently shaped dies. I need to figure out how to veganize them. (They were pretty eggy, I think.)

    You could hold a cookie exchange by mail. Give me a few weeks to detox the sugar out of my system and we can talk. I grew up making the spritz cookies too! I loved the ones that looked like flowers. I have no memory of making the dough, but I’m sure someone does.
