i baked a couple of things.

Image

i've seen the "hypnosis cookies" around here but didn't find a recipe, so i used the roll & cut sugar cookies recipe from VCIYCJ. i had to add tons of extra flour, otherwise i can't imagine the dough to be roll-able, even after chilling.. for the chocolate dough, i just added cacao (cocoa?) powder and a bit more soymilk.
delicious.

Image
Mocha Mama and Tahini Lime Cookie from VCIYCJ. i was lazy, so i just used a spoon to glaze the mocha mamas.


Image
Korvapuusti - finnish cinnamon buns.
actually, they're supposed to look like this.
i used this recipe, but either she has super-dense flour (did i mention that i hate when dry ingredients like flour aren't measured by weight?) or else.. i don't know. i almost doubled the amount of spelt flour to get a dough i could work with.
the recipe says to roll out the dough a bit less than 1 cm.. i rolled it out to about half a centimeter and i think this is still too thick.

anyway, so they're not as pretty as they should be, but they're delicious! the cardamom in the dough is great. they're also super-fluffy thanks to triple rising (first a few hours in a warm spot, then overnight in the fridge, then again 40 minutes after rolling & cutting).

These all look so good. I wish I hadn't lent my colleague my VCIYCJ for the break,

I remember a raw food artist that designed food to look like other foods. The Mocha Mama and Tahini Lime cookies remind me of a cheeseburger and sesame seed bun. Very cute.

They totally do look like a little burger.

Everything looks great! especially the cinnamon buns.

I would make a burger and eat them together. I have no shame when it comes to cookies.
I'm so intrigued by the cinnamon buns- those are awesome!

The hypnosis cookies are from The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur!

Yours look great too! So do the mocha mamas.

I'm with Meggs, those cookies are begging to be combined into a mini cookieburger.
