Vegan Cookie Exchange

Last weekend I organized a vegan cookie exchange and have added treats to my ever growing list of favorites. My contributions were Tea Lime Pistachio and Cinnamon Pecan Swirl cookies.

The other participants brought Peanut Butter Blossoms, Chocolate Caramel Pecan Turtles, Soft Chewy Molasses, and Lime Shortbread cookies. Lastly there were Chocolate Peanut Marshmallow bars, which were so rich and delicious.

Our greatest dilemma was determining which kind to eat whenever we had one or two or three. They were all quite good and a nice variety. The kids loved them all and gave their thumbs up to all the treats we brought home.

Drooling yet? They were as good as they look. I'm already looking forward to next year!


  1. It started out as a Vegkins parents thing, but I always say the more the merrier. I'd be great to add your tasty baking to our cookie exchange. Did you go to the one through Vegan Meetup?

  2. Where did you find vegan "kisses" for the peanut butter blossoms? I didn't think there was a vegan version.

  3. I didn't make them, but found out how they were made (I think you are right about the vegan kisses). You melt chocolate, let it cool awhile to start to thicken up, and then pipe it onto the cookies. That is how the "kisses" were made.

  4. Ah ha! You had me excited there for a minute! However, that's certainly a great way to make vegan kisses!
