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.

my ma was craving some cookies so i actually decided to make something i didn't try before, and I did Applesauce Softies (with apple juice soaked raisins). they were insanely good. and healthy-ish! (I just used all AP flour). i think these will be my go to cookie while i try to lose weight. (one always needs cookies) :)

Has anyone used a different filling in the peanut butter pillows? Say a vegan nutella? If I use something like that that's going to become more runny as it cooks, is it likely to ooze out and burn?

Brought the cocoa brownies to work and they were gone in half an hour. I'm stoked to have found a good fudgy brownie recipe. I also made the orange agave chocolate chip cookies - they were from the "wholesome cookies" section and they do indeed taste a bit more wholesome than a normal cookie. Which is cool because then I feel justified eating them for breakfast.

I used plain hazelnut butter instead of peanut butter one time and while they were delicious, they weren't "pillowy" at all. The filling did stay inside the cookie, but they flattened out completely so that they just seemed like chocolate hazelnut cookies. I haven't tried them again but I suspect that adding some flour to the filling might fix that. I should try! If I figure it out I'll report back.

Graham flour has worked just fine for me. Do you have golden syrup?

I don't know what Graham flour is either. It doesnt seem to be available here. Ill just try it with normal whole wheat and expect it to be quite dense.

Im not exactly sure if golden syrup is the same as just plains sugar syrup? Like this http://www.grafschafter.de/web/produkte/goldsaft.html ? Ill just try it. Thank you.

VB, I use Zuckerruebensyrup in place of molasses and it works perfectly fine all the time, regardless of the type of molasses the recipes call for.
As for white whole wheat flour, I usually do half plain white flour (550) and half whole wheat, also works fine (although I never had anything made with white whole wheat flour so I can't tell if there is a difference).

I wasn't happy with golden syrup as a molasses substitute; I was making gingersnaps, and they came out more like bland snickerdoodles. Still edible, obviously, but not ideal. I found some kind of molasses at a Reformhaus.

But the molasses at Reformhauses are dark molasses, right? The ones with a super intense taste? Or have you found another one?
