I used to add a little extra flour because the dough always turned out wet and oily (even though the directions say it should be "a little stiff"), but sometimes they turned out not quite right. Eventually I realized that if I follow the recipe as printed but reduce the oil to 1/2 cup, they turn out perfect.


I will do that next time!

I've never increased the flour, but mine turn out less wet & oily (& perfect!) when I use wheat flour instead of white flour, and it doesn't make them taste "healthy" or anything.

I just made the PB pillows with PB & Co White Chocolate Wonder peanut butter. OMG. Eating those was one of the best experiences of my life. Too bad they're all gone now.

If I can ever find any goddamn brown rice syrup (which they are naturally out of at the more-convenient HFS in my area the one time I need it), I will be making a batch of Pecan Caramel Bars for Thanksgiving.

I found out by accident that the Mexican Chocolate Snickerdoodles are even better with carob powder...I happen to have the same brand of cocoa and carob powder at the moment, and their containers look similar enough that you can easily grab the wrong one if you're not paying attention, and that's what happened. Best mistake ever.

I got some pumpkin seed oil in a package exchange. I wonder if it would be good in the pumpkin cookies? Or any others?

I made the pillows for a group of non-veg*n friends and they were very popular! Mmmmmm.

I haven't made brownies since I've been vegan (seriously, how have I lived for the last two years?), but I've been having a baking itch lately and thought I would give the ones from VCIYCJ a go. The plan is to make the plain ones, but I haven't heard much scuttlebutt about them. Am I going to be ok? Will I have regrets (is that possible) ? Tell me PPK!

I love these brownies. So. Very. Much. And so does my very omni brother. You won't regret them. They're nice and fudgy and brownie-y...mmm.

Every time I see the name of those cookies, I think it says Samoans and think, god DAMN that's racist. And then I remember.

I've had similar issues with the chocolate chip cookies. I made them GF a couple weeks ago, and they were practically swimming in oil. But when I added some flour, they got kinda weird (though still good).

I find it far too easy to overindulge with cookies, so I don't use this book often. I've loved almost everything I've made from it though.

I've made the espresso fudge ones (I think you're talking about the deluxe cocoa ones) and they were great! Can't speak for the other ones though.

I made the espresso brownies and chai shortbread last night, love them both. Boyfriend hates coffee and tea, so more for me! Total win-win.

I just made a batch of these for a friend using the 1/2 C oil, and I will never make it with the amount of oil called for in the recipe again.

Ok, ok so I'm late to the party.

Just picked this book up yesterday and made recipe #1 - Chocolate Chip Cookies, which went perfectly with a tall glass of EB chocolate soy milk. Love these babies!

Came home from work this evening looking forward to my after dinner snack and found an empty cookie jar! My husband just had to eat the entire batch while he was home today! He danced around the kitchen laughing and singing "Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar" then proceeded to ask when I would be making more.

Umm... this weekend :)

Yay, glad your first experience with the book was good! I really don't think you can go wrong with any of the recipes, my absolute favorite so far has been the peanut apple pretzel drops! But they've all been incredible!

So, I made the brownies last night and they were delicious! I usually like my brownies a bit fudgier, but I was so excited to be eating brownies that I didn't care. The boy loved them too (thank goodness because someone has to eat them!). Thanks for everyone's reviews/reassurances.

Now onto the PB pillows!

Has anyone tried to make them with almond butter? Experiences? Certain brand of almond butter, if you have made them? I'm concerned about the texture/oiliness. I wish I had written down which peanut butter I used last time I made the PB Pillows... I think it was Maranatha, but I can't be certain...
