An orange cookie topped with dark chocolate and muddy buddies
I’m the worst with gift cards. Who knows how many I’ve lost and never used.
On my 20th birthday, I had an old Borders’ gift card and I was determined to use it. I scoured the cookbooks for something to get. It took me forever to decide! But I finally selected Kelly Peloza‘s The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur.
I remember sitting in the car mesmerized by all the delicious recipes. One cookie in particular stood out – Puppy Chow Cookies! I couldn’t wait to try these. I mean this is gonna sound crazy, but I had never heard of puppy chow! Also, the cookie base fascinated me. The instructions stated to press the dough in a ziploc bag and freeze before baking?!?
I really think this cookbook (along with Isa‘s and many other sweet treat creators) inspired me to create my own recipes.
So, here’s my version. These cookies include last week’s muddy buddies, dark chocolate and a scrumptious-all-by-itself orange cookie.
Is there one cookbook in particular that inspires you?
