Review

Publishers Weekly, 10/19/09 "[A] winning collection of vegan cookie recipes that should appeal to vegans and nonvegans alike...decadent recipes like caramel pecan bars and starry fudge shortbread, filled with non-dairy chocolate ganache, show that you can be vegan and still indulge in delicious treats." Washington Express, 11/10/09 "Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero certainly make dairy-free baking accessible. Most importantly, the duo makes dairy-free baking seem so effortless, with thorough descriptions of all of their ingredients and tips on how and where to find vegan versions of common items." New York Times, 12/2/09 "Once I read the introductory pages of this one, I was on board. The authors are not preachy or intolerant of heathens like me who eat and drink everything, which made me feel less defensive and more interested in what they had to say." Library Journal, 11/15/09 "The authors...return with another sweet collection of vegan goodies...Recommended for vegan bakers and cookie lovers." Bust, December/January 2009/2010 "With their newest collection, classic cookie recipes get...magical treatment...Out just in time for holiday cookie-swap season, this treasure trove also has options for every dietary restriction...ensuring your baking will be the hit of the party no matter where you go." regarding the Caramel Pecan Bars, Naples Daily News FL, 12/3/09 "All the taste testers for Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar apparently raved about this goody, nutty bar cookie. It's a treat for the enlightened, for those with dairy allergies-and for the rest of us." The Hippo NH, 12/2/09 "The answer to the question 'What cookies can I make that both grandma and the newly vegan cousin can eat?' Moskowitz has become the authority on hip, fun, not-scoldy vegan eating...An ideal reference for those dealing with allergies as well as philosophical restrictions." Kingman Daily Miner, 11/27/09 "A delicious sequel to Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World and Veganomicon...Recipes which would whet any appetite and still be healthy...When you see the beautiful pictures, you can just about taste them." on Macadamia Ginger Crunch Drops and Cranberry Almond Cookies, Providence Journal, 12/9/09 "These are two tasty cookies, and you'll only know they are vegan because I told you so...Outstanding." on Macadamia Ginger Crunch Drops, Washington Post, 2009 "These chewy vegan treats are rich, sweet and subtly spiced." Art and Lemons blog, 12/13/2009 "[Will] satisfy any sweet tooth, vegan and omnivore alike...These vegan treats can be whipped up in a matter of minutes and will leave everyone wanting more. They might even steal your heart, really, they're that good...These simple and well-written recipes will have you baking and laughing at the witty descriptions all at once...These baking superheroes have come through once again with witty cookie descriptions, colorful photos, and festive recipes suited for any occasion, and just in time for the holidays. They make vegan baking simple, flavorful, and hip...The book is a pleasure to read." Bar Harbor Times, 12/19/2009 "Moskowitz and Romero are icons in the vegan world...All your favorite cookies are here, alongside many that are about to become your favorites." Rockford Register Star, 12/9/2009 "Tempt yourself...Isa and Terry share their best mixing, baking and decorating techniques and tackle age-old cookie conundrums." VegNews, January/February 2010 "Takes the beloved, versatile dessert and turns it on its dairy-free head...Culinary powerhouses on their own, when Moskowitz and Romero team up, the results are spot-on and memorable. This cute, compact collection of 100 crowd-pleasing hand-holds hits the spot...[The] ultimate cookie manual...One read through the colorful pages and every kitchen is destined to be a full-blown cookie factory in no time." Suite101.com, 12/13/09 "Takes the guesswork out of making vegan cookies. They delve into the science of cookie-making, so their readers don't have to (thank goodness!). And while there are some healthier offerings among this recipe book's 200-plus pages, the cookies themselves are universally indulgent and delicious. The recipes, combined with its comprehensive guide to vegan ingredients, substitutions and cookie troubleshooting guide, make Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar a five-star cookbook. Perfect for everyone from beginner bakers to seasoned cooks...Nobody will stop to wonder if these recipes are vegan, because they're just plain good." LaVidaLocavore.org, 12/28/09 "The book's great. I love it. The cookies include all of the classics plus innovative varieties like Tahini Lime Cookies and Sweet Wine Biscuits with Sesame. Plus it starts with sections on ingredients and equipment that make clear what you need, why you need it, and when and how you can substitute...You don't need to be a vegan to use the recipes in this book." GoDairyFree.org, 1/12/2010 "These recipes are easy to follow and produce tasty treats. Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar is a good resource for beginning bakers." Feminist Review, 1/21/2010 "A tasty new book...It looks so good I'm tempted to eat it, Cookie Monster-style...This book has a great introductory chapter...The recipes themselves are very clearly explained and illustrated in full color with what I can only call...cookie porn...The cookies were much better than store-bought vegan cookies." EDGE Publications, 3/17/10 "We've been charmed by vegan author Isa Chandra Moskowitz." Midwest Book Review, May 2010"Packs in dairy-free cookies and bars that range from adaptations to vegan from traditional recipes to new original cookies...An outstanding, surprisingly simple cookbook for any vegan cookery collection." The Auburn Citizen, 12/29/10 "Will satisfy almost everyone's sweet tooth and visions of sugarplums." The RetailMeNot Insider, 5/23/11 "Granted, these authors aren't on restricted diets due to allergies or celiac disease, but their wildly inventive vegan desserts are dairy- and egg-free, and they have a whole section on how to make cookies without wheat." BizIndia.net, 11/21/11 "The authors of this book demonstrate their baking creativity in a hundred ways...Get, read and practice with this book to improve or perfect your skills."

Format: Paperback
Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero have created another instant classic. Cookies get the treatment given to cupcakes in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World: 75 Dairy-free Recipes for Cupcakes That Rule, with recipes ranging from your basic chocolate chip, peanut butter, and oatmeal raisin cookies, to the fancier and more complex chocolate peanut butter pillows. It even includes healthy(ish) cookies (since cookies aren't usually health food, even if they're vegan) and bars (brownies, blondies, etc.), a troubleshooting guide, a pantry-stocking guide, and advice on substitutions (like for when you've run out of brown sugar or oil) and making your cookies gluten-free or lower in fat. There's even a recipe for Oreo-type cookies! Though the measures are American (you'll need cup measures), most of the ingredients are easy enough to find in the UK.

Like all of their other books, the writing is accessible and conversational - you could read this like a novel. This is a great book for anyone who is or knows or might think they'll eventually meet a vegan or cookie-lover, or for any bakers of any skill level.

I've had this book for about a month and I've already made the Minonos, Mexican Chocolate Snickerdoodles, Carrot & Raisin Spice Chewsies, Rocky Roads, Cowboy Cookies, Peanut Butter Oatmeal and Oatmeal Raisin. They've all turned out GREAT! I've made loads of them twice as well and given the cookies as Xmas gifts.

I especially recommend the Rocky Roads and they look exactly like the do on the cover and are really impressive! Someone else who submitted a review said they'll taste even better if you replace the oil in most of the recipes with vegan margarine (like Vitalite, Pure, or Earth Balance) so I'm going to start trying that from now on.

This book is amazing. Buy it, buy it, buy it!

I'm baking cookies everyday!!! The recipes are so easy! I cannot believe that this book was out there and I've only just discovered it. The two ladies who wrote this book are beyond talented. My friend and I vowed not to buy anymore vegan cookbooks until we've cooked our way through the ones we have but how can you not have this book invade your cookie jar. I broke my vow and bought it!

A must, must, must have. Oh, I almost forgot to mention if you're watching your waistline there are plenty of very healthy recipes and I use mostly wholewheat flour and less sugar and get very good results. Buy it!

I love the post punk kitchen's chefs Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero. My copy of "Vegan cupcake takes over the world" is grease stained of use and I am sure "Vegan cookies invade your cookie jar" will be the same with times. I have tried out a few of their recipies and all turned out well. All recipes are well tested and really yummy. But I do cut down the sugar in all their recipes. My tast buds doen't need that much sugar chock and I am not american"

Oh my goodness, this book is fantastic. I have made several of the cookies in the book so far and thoroughly recommend them. I've made the sweet wine cookies, chocolate oatmeal, cherry and almond, all gorgeous. Although the author doesn't recommend substituting the oil used in the recipes for apple sauce (to reduce fat content), I have done so for all of the cookies i have made so far, with no problems. There is a very helpful section at the start for vegans new to baking about substitutions and egg replacements. I also really appreciated the 'wholesome' section, for healthier options such as track bars.

A good book, very clear, with helpful notes at the front about replacements for eggs, butter etc when baking vegan cookies, which helps you to work out how to 'veganise' some of your usual cookie recipes. Although there are plenty in this book, so you shouldn't have to!
I've made 4 different recipes so far, and all have come out pretty well.
Definitely recommend this book.

so far we've made 2 lots of biscuits/cookies, but granted we haven't had the book long.

we've made the agave orange chocolate chip 1's - delicious, though they are very large cookies, and only make about 24, they can be made smaller, as they do turn out quite big.

we've also made the snickerdoodles - oh wow, they are yummy, but they say to cook them for about 10-12 mins, and they look quite pale (no pic to check them against), so we recommend leaving them until they are a nice golden brown, which would be longer than the stated time - they are really nice though. ours turned out puffy, then deflated (as it said they would), were pale coloured, but soft yet chewy. the only down side to making them was the amount of cinnamon sugar topping that got everywhere, as the dough not only needed to be rolled in it, but then it needed to be sprinkled over them before going in the oven, needless to say a sugary mess everywhere !!!!! the recipe also said to make about 24 biscuits, and these would have also been quite big, but we made them half the size and they seem ok. they turned out to be about the regular size of a shop bought biscuit when done half the size, so unless you want giant biscuits, we'd recommend halving them as well, as they are put in as balls, and flatten themselves out while cooking - unlike the chocolate chip 1's we did !!!!

we love the book so much, and are happy with the 2 recipes we've done that we plan on making more over the next few days or so, and we've already marked off the next 5 recipes we want to try next - yes 5 !!!!!

we don't even find the ingredients to be difficult (US terms:- baking soda = bicarb of soda, shortening = veg lard, etc).
