Carrot Spice Cream Cheese Cookie Sammiches and Cookie Conundrum!!!
Carrot Raisin Spice Chewies
OH MY GOD.(please imagine that in either fran drescher or janice from friends voice.even though there's not really a difference)
these rule!the school.okay,so for the past 2 years i've been positive that the vwav carrot cake is the best in the world and when i made it with toasted walnut cream cheese frosting back in june i claimed that it was the best carrot cake i've ever had,and these taste just like it,but in cookie format.
PERFECT texture.these are really chewy but not cakey,very moist.very sweet,just the way i like it,and when you bite into a nut and raisin piece it's perfect.oh and they're spiced very nicely.and the coconut is great too.wow.i think these are my favourite tests so far.i will definitely make them again.
i left them in the fridge for my brothers so i'll have their verdict tomorrow.
and i rode my bike over to my friend sian's house to put them through her cat door for her and while i was doing it she opened the door to leave and i got really scared.i'll have her opinion tomorrow too.but whatever,not like it matters,because these rule!
These,and the follwing are testers for Isa and Terry's upcoming cookie book:
Chocolate Fudgey Oatmeal Cookies
with chunks of chocolate covered crystallized ginger!
moist,very chewy,insanely chocoltey and nice spice from the ginger.mmmm.
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
cakier than a normal chocolate chip cookies,but not exactly healthy tasting.still moist,and definitely more of a cookie than a muffin top.moist and textural.
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
they're rolled in salted peanuts,super chewy and have a really nice hint of cinnamon.salty and sweet.
so chewy,hearty,sweet but not cloying,mmmm.amazing cookie dough,too.
i always thought coconut was girly,though.but i guess spices and dried fruit are.though,i'm really not the person to be saying what's girly and what's not.
another cookie,but not a tester:
super soft.the first snickerdoodle i ever had was vegan,and before i was vegan!
it's all marty would make and they were awesome.so are these.why don't i make them more?!
very berry muffin,from JJ Bean.
Huge,chock full of berries,pretty sweet,and good texture.
who wudda thought?
from capers/whole foods in vancouver.
it was good.well,the cake was mediocre,and the mousse was great.i would eat ti again,especially because the mousse,but i wouldn't buy one again,especially knowing that i could make a lot better.pick it up whole foods!
