Cookie Mania



Well I decided to try my hand at some more cookies tonight.

Lessons learnt from cookie making

1. Brown rice syrup makes your cookies hard and poor flavour

2.Brown sugar esp the one I have at my house makes ur cookies super hard.

3.Agave nectar makes cookies hard

4. Maple syrup is amazing in cookies and gives them a wonderful flavour

5. Fructose is a better tasting sweetener and you use less as it has a more sweeter taste than sugar


I made dutch chocolate and walnut again but as you can see it is a nice rich colour. I realised that dutch chocolate is amazing and these cookies remind me of brownies.

I found a really nice blend for a cookie mixture. Almonds, walnuts, chocolate and vanilla.

This is excellent and it gives such a how should I say this. High classed bakery taste.

The dutch chocolate is amazing when paired with walnuts.

I will try pecan next time and use black strap molasses to give a "butter pecan" flavour.

My mom told me I should sell these cookies to the vegan restaurant in the city as they have loads of cakes and stuff but no cookies.

I will take some to work again 2morrow and see how it goes with the co workers.

I will post the recipe very soon for you soon but I am working on the perfect cookie still.

These are soft and have a slightly hard exterior what we call american style cookies that chewy soft feel.

There is still a lot of work to be done.

Anyone has some suggestions.

I see many visitors to the blog but no feedback.

What is wrong ??

If anyone has cookie advice for me please share it.

Thanks

Tay

They look great. I love nuts in my cookies, but my daughter doesn't like nuts, so I have to leave them out most of the time.
How do you like your cookies? If you like them crispier, flatten them out a bit before you bake them, they will be less soft in the middle.
As for sweetener, I like agave, but I do use raw sugar alot.
For the thin cookies on my blog, they will be thin with a bit of caramelish flavor, so you did make those right.

These look yummy! I love that you're all about cookies right now, and you've done a lot of experimenting with sweeteners. I don't have much advice to offer but to say keep the cookies comin'!

I'm glad I've found your site. My family is originally from St. Lucia but is now living in Texas. My brother is vegan and its difficult for me to flavorful dishes for him to eat. My biggest obstacle was tofu. Now I've learned to cook it different ways (bbq, curried, stewed...etc) just like meat. Thank you for the dessert ideas. The holidays are coming up and I feel like I have more choices. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I've bookmarked your site.

The next item on my list to conquer is gluten!
