Yeah, I got nothin'

So. It's a lazy Sunday. Like every Sunday, I try to squeeze the maximum amount of quality couch time in before I have to go back to work the next day. Today it is just not happening. I have been restless all week. I haven't even been able to concentrate on what I want to bake. The horror! Normally, I wile away the hours at work thinking about sweets and what I want to make on the weekend. Today, Sunday, came and I hadn't a clue what to do. So I just pulled these out of a hat basically. The results? Not bad. Not bad at all.

I decided to give Dreena Burton's books another try, as I have not had the greatest experiences with them, and make the Chocolate Chunk Spice Cookies from Eat, Drink & Be Vegan. They definitely have a good spice to them. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice. Instead of ordinary chocolate chunks, I chopped up a Chocolove Dark Chocolate and Crystalized Ginger bar for a little extra spice. I also subbed agave nectar for maple syrup. Tasty.

I got a perfect dozen of these beauties. Soft and chewy.


This next cookie I was a little skeptical about. I got the recipe from here. I was psyched because I had a tub of Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese that has been sitting in the fridge for a while, unopened. I don't eat it often, but they were on sale a few months ago, so I bought a couple. I only eat it on bagels. Or crackers. The recipe seemed lacking, so I added baking powder. It just seemed unusual to not have any in it. With that in mind, these bad boys spread like crazy. Fine by me. They're still purdy. I got 15 bundles of joy.

They're flat and chewy. And they made my stomach sing with happiness. Hum with pleasure. Grumble with satisfaction. Okay, they are just plain good.
