5.0 out of 5 stars wow !!!!, 11 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar (Paperback)
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). we would say that were "sugar" is mentioned to use caster sugar, and were they say to use large crystal sugar, to use granulated, although it doesn't mention that in the front of the book, so that was be a bit of a pain to work out. Also were it says canola oil, they mean rapeseed, which is readily available in the UK. it also only lists oven temp in F, so if you use gas, or C, or even a fan oven, having a temp converter is going to be handy - luckily we have 1 on the fridge that we got from Lakeland, along with a liquid/weight converter. Due to these conversions we have made pencil marks in the book, but what is a regular used recipe book if it doesn't have marking in it - lol

Over all we would happily recommend this book, and believe that treats like these should make their way into homes all over, as it's really nice to be able to have lovely recipes without the high trans fats - healthier and happier treats for all..........
