coooooooooookies!

I made cookies last night to take to work today:
example
"Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies" from The Joy of Vegan Baking. Believe it or not, I followed the recipe exactly as written! Containing mostly pantry staples, these cookies were a breeze to throw together and are minty-chocolatey, rich and delicious!

Note: these cookies didn't spread much for me, so I found they took on a more traditional cookie shape if I squashed them flat after I scooped them out with my cookie scooper.

I owe my boss big time . . . we pretty much ran out of diapers in our classroom yesterday, and she ran to Costco at the end of the day to replenish our supply. Let's hope these cookies ease the pain of having to go to Costco during rush hour!

(Her favorite candies are "Junior Mints," so I thought these cookies might be well-received.)

They turned out great! Do you know why they didn't spread?

I love the combination of chocolate and mint. The lone vegetarian restaurant here in town makes a chocolate-espresso-mint cookie that is just fantastic. You are making me want to get that book! Brett loves Junior Mints too, this might be just the treat for me.
