Vegan MoFo Day 26: I made Cookies - WooHooooo!!

Let it be known I have never made Cookies in my life - vegan or otherwise (yeah, I know - I'm not right in the head). Anyhooo last night I had a craving for something sweet, which, incidentally, I swear was brought on by reading through all the MoFo blogs - I hardly ever get cravings for sweet things - so you're ALL to blame! I wanted to make mihl's ones here 'cos they just look so darn tasty AND shellyfish confirmed just how darned tasty they actually were! I went to the cupboard to check I had all the necessary doings - which I didn't!! But no biggy - I just subbed the Almond essence for Vanilla and didn't decorate the tops with Chocolate. I didn't have enough Marg either so I made a half recipe, which is just as blinking well really cos I would have scoffed the whole lot. They were totally srumpalicious!!
ain't they perrty!
And 'cos I know you're all suckers for pictures of animals - here's two of my clan the minute the bed became available.

hello kitties! meow! ppprrrrrr.....

i made brownies today to go with my ice cream. i had no margarine so i used vegetabel oil. they turned out okay. i think they need to sit and completely cool to firm up.

congratulations on not being a cookie virgin anymore! that's awesome!

Congrats on creating cookies that make me want to lick my screen.

Hooray for late night cookie cravings!

For first cookies, they looked incredible! I just tagged you for the freezer post. I hope that is okay!

Bethany said...

super cute! love how they jump in and steal up any heat they can find. Except mine find a way of pushing me aside because they can't wait. cool wall hanging, btw.

cookies look great. can't believe you never made cookies before.

Hooray for cookies! Such a fun little splurge.

shellyfish said...

Oh, now you're in trouble! I made cookies for the first time about three years ago...and now I make them all the time. M. Fish has told me I need to stop baking because he's gaining too much weight! And kittie love! Yes!

Cody said...

Never made cookies... I can't even imagine. They look yummy, though.

And yay for sleeping kitties. I kind of wish mine was sleeping instead of licking my laptop...

Felicity said...

mmm, cookies, I deliberately DON'T make sweets that often because of my sweet tooth. Those look yummy. And your moggies are adorable. What is it with cats, they are heat-seaking devices, always seeking the warmest spot in the house.

Vegyogini said...

How fabulous that you've entered the world of cookie-baking! It's such a great skill to have under your belt because cookies make excellent gifts. :) I love your astrological wall chart, by the way.

Sanja said...

Never made cookies? Hardly crave sweet things? How do you do that? Tell me!

Tracy said...

These cookies look delish! I am such a sucker for vegan sugarry cookies.

Sleepy kitties! Are your cats snugglers? My kitties tend to stay away from one another so when I can catch them remotely close sleeping it is the photo-op of a lifetime. Super cute!

Bex said...

never made cookies?!?! well I don't know how I feel about that but I do know I want to make these.

sp said...

Beautiful kitties. I love their names!

Jeni Treehugger said...

Thanks for all your lovely comments guys and gals
:)

And I think I am in trouble and making up for lost time 'cos I made some more last night - a double batch!!
Hee hee hee

Sanja - I have my other weaknesses - all of the savoury kind. Crisps are the worst - Salt and Vinegar Chip sticks turn this woman into some kind of crisp monster.

tracy - 3 of my cats are snugglers and they all snuggle up together in the winter, great photo ops for sure.
