Wish I'd thought to take pictures, but I made treat boxes for my husband's team at work and from VCIYCJ did the Mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles, citrus glitters, and blackstrap ginger snaps (made with regular molasses).

I made the deluxe chocolate brownies for my neighbours when I went round for dinner last night (with added chocolate chips) and they went down a storm! Definitely the best and most omni-friendly vegan brownie recipe I've made so far.

I (finally) made the chocolate peanut butter pillows. The only thing I changed from the recipe was reducing the oil from 1/2c to 1/3c. When I was putting them together the dough was perfectly moist and it all seemed good. They came out of the oven and were awesome. I put them in an airtight container as soon as they cooled. By the next morning they tasted totally stale and were crumbly dry messes! So sad. I don't know what went wrong, but I don't think I'll be making them again unless they'll all be eaten the same day.

Is that something that could be caused by reducing the oil? I've never made these cookies. If you are reading this and you made them with the full amount of oil, how long did they last?

This is one of the recipes that I've planned to try out to give people, so they need to last more than one night for that.

I'm sorry your cookies went stale, masuphl. That's so disappointing.

I've made them with full oil and they were good for several days.

That's helpful, thanks. I have reduced the oil in other recipes from this book without issue, so I will make a note in the book not to do that for these. Luckily they weren't for Christmas Eve, just for a friend who was happy to warm them in the microwave so they were soft again.

Cowboy cookies - they're full of stuff everyone loves! Recipe came out perfect, two dozen giant cookies. I toasted the pecans AND shredded coconut beforehand and that really brought out a fantastic nutty flavor.

I made the brownies last night, the ones with tofu in them. Just too darn good. I ate about 1/3 of the recipe last night and then 3 squares with my breakfast this morning. I'm going to consider them healthy since there is tofu in them.

I made the espresso chip oatmeal cookies and they were a semi-disaster. The dough was way too loose. But I baked them anyways. Spread far too much, so I threw out the already portioned second sheet. The baked splats were tasty though, next time a little more flour.
