In terms of variety of recipes, this is a great book and on first glance I was also impressed with the overall style. The photos, in particular, made the cookies look delicious. However, it was only by chance that I recently happened to notice the very long list of photo credits on one of the front pages. It is now clear to me that none of the photos are of the actual recipes. Instead, they are stock photos purchased from one of the best-known stock photo websites.

I think it's highly misleading to have a recipe book with lots of full-page photos, where those photos are NOT illustrating the recipes. They may as well be photos of cats and dogs, for all the relevance they have. I'd rather the book have had the occasional photo illustrating the actual recipes, rather than 100% fake photos. The recipes may or may not be good, but I felt quite cheated.

Format: Paperback
This is the second Ellen Brown book I have reviewed and I am hooked on her recipes. In this book, first of all you'll find out all about vegan baking. Then there are icings and sugar and chocolate glazes. In Chapter 2 it's rolled and formed cookies - my favourite in this section was almond biscotti, but there are lots of great classics like gingerbread. Chapter 3 is dropped and balled cookies with lots of wholesome oat recipes and I love those Mocha Crackles (they're on the front cover top right). In chapter 4 you'll discover bar cookies and brownies including my all time favourite treat Baklava. There is only one recipe in the whole book that I don't want to try. Great Xmas gift, but get one for yourself too. This review first appeared on welovefinefoods website

Beautiful book. Recipes fall short. 21 Dec. 2012
By brendan - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've been vegan for 20 years. I have a whole slew of vegan cookbooks. I love to cook and we always make giftbaskets as most of our holiday gifts. I was drawn to this one because every recipe has an image, it's easily laid out, which makes it much better to follow. And there was tips at the bottom of each page. And number one, its vegan and Holiday oriented. The price was awesome, I didn't stop one second to purchase it.

As I was flipping through the pages selecting what to make for Christmas gifts, what got me was first of all, the egg replacer in numerous recipes. I rarely see that in vegan baking recipes. There are many other natural ingredients that do the same job. I do see she uses bananas here and there.
Second, it was the amount of 'frill', in each recipe. I made the banana nut ginger cookies. There's a ridiculous amount of nuts in there. It destroyed the cookies binding qualities. It didn't hold together. It was a nutty equivalent of granola in the end. And dry, no sweetness whatsoever to the cookie. I also made the almond chocolate blondies. They came out the same. The binding was non existant from all the frill. Too many nuts and chocolate, not enough base. And hard. We have a crumbly biscotti now. One calls for a cup of raisins, a half cup of dates, a half cup of currants, a half cup of walnuts, a half cup of candies citrus peel, but only 1 cup of flour. I'm not even going to try that one. I know it won't hold.
There is lots of soy butter in each. I don't often see that much soy butter with very little or no oil. I almost have to wonder if just regular non vegan recipes were taken, then the ingredients were switched to dairy free.
If you are going to use this book, keep in mind that the 'yields to' amounts are short as well.

I would use the basic bases from Sinfully Vegan, or Vegan Cookies Take Over Your Cookie Jar, or even the delicious brownies from Vegan Diner, then add half the frill from this book. Where they average 2 cups of flour for 2 dozen cookies. This book averages 1.

The authors creative ideas are there. The book quality and format are spot on. But the recipes are off.

Vegans Think Twice Before Buying 4 Dec. 2012
By Valerie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I opened this book I was so excited, then I started reading through it and some things stood out that bothered me. Like another reviewer wrote, the author mentioned using jelly beans for decorating which are typically not vegan. A more noticeable ingredient to me that she mentions is miniature marshmallows. I have so far never seen vegan miniature marshmallows. I was also disappointed at how many recipes used Ener-G egg replacer. If I wanted to just use that, I would adapt a non-vegan recipe myself. The author does not appear to be Vegan herself, she talks about what it means to be vegan (more or less) but not that she actually is, another hint that she is not is that she has written other cookbooks about sausage and meatballs among other non-vegan things. If by chance is now vegan and wrote those books before becoming vegan, I would hope she would at least mention that she is in fact now vegan. Because she doesn't, I can only guess that she is not. If I had realized this before purchasing, I wouldn't have bothered with this book.

Not that great 25 Nov. 2012
By Regina A. Rhoa - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I spent this afternoon baking 5 of the recipes. 1 out of 5 tasted good. The proportions don't seem to be right. The pecan chocolate cookies didn't even have any sweetener in it. I wouldn't recommend this book.

Pictures Beautiful, but don't look like finished product 22 Dec. 2012
By kiwi - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was SO excited to be given this book by a friend who knows I love to bake and since becoming a vegan, have wondered what I would do at Christmas. Today I have made several recipes, none of which will I share with anyone. I am very disappointed. I can leave off the jelly beans etc. and use nuts, but dry, bland, tasteless cookies, I can definitely live without. I will go back to revising my old recipes and also using recipes on the internet. I will not recommend this book.

Disappointed 1 Feb. 2013
By Susan K. Corrado - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First off, I bought this book specifically for the thumprint cookies. The picture on the front of the book looked really good. As you can see in the picture, the cookies have walnuts covering them, as all good thumb prints should. The recipe, however, is with peanut butter in the dough and I believe the dough is rolled in peanuts. There are substitutions but none with walnuts. Why picture them with walnuts if that's not the recipe you are providing? Also, the sugar cookies were hard to deal with. It would have been nice if they would have explained which icing they used as the base color and which one to decorate with. I usually love all my vegan cookbooks but this one has been a disappointment so far.
