Ways to tell you are at Vegan HQ - Number Two

The cookies you are making are devoured at the same rate that you are making them.  25 cookies per tray, one tray every 15 minutes.  5 hungry vegans in the kitchen.  You do the maths.

Yumma yumma yumma

Romelli likes to put green things on everything to make it look better.  Like coriander leaves on her cakes.  Or bits from a fern plant on cookies.  Or...

Sometimes Romelli goes overboard with the decorations.

Do you want to make these cookies?  Here is a recipe I stole from Christian's blog:

This makes about 100 small cookies, cause you want them to be small and you want to have like at least one hundred of them.  They are called Country Ma'am cookies apparently, I just call them chocochip cookies.

2 cups of vegan margarine
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
6 Table spoons white sugar
2 teaspoons of No-Egg with 4 Tbsp of water (for my cookies I just used one 125ml pack of soy yogurt, which worked wonders, but you could use arrowroot, No-Egg, or whatever, mixed with water, whatever tickles your fancy)
3 tsp. vanilla essence
3 cups of plain flour (or a bit more I find makes them come out just a little bit better)
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups minimum of vegan choco chips/drops

Cream the marg, sugars, No-eggs, and vanilla together.  When it's all creamified add the flour, baking soda and salt.  Once all mixed to the max add your choco chips, and mix them through.

Your oven, by the way, should be heated to 180*C, do that before you start so it's hot hot hot.  

What you want to do is roll little bits of cookie dough, like a teaspoon sized drop, in your hands and shape them into a little ball.  Stick those balls on your baking tray, no need to grease it, cause you don't need to grease trays when you are making cookies most of the time.  I GUESS you could stick some baking paper down, but it doesn't really matter at all.  I manage to fit 25 cookies on my tray.  Stick them in the oven for 8-9 minutes, not too long though, just long enough.  Then take them out, let them cool and eat them as fast as you can.

You can practically taste the cookies just looking at them.  But you can't really.  But I can.  And they are amazing.
