Rocky Roads

So, lately I have been making my way through a great little book called Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.  I may not be a vegan, but it's a welcome change of pace to bake cookies without the use of eggs or butter.  I also love the challenge of sneaking unexpectedly veg/vegan recipes past my unsuspecting carnivore guy friends.  It's good research :)  So far I have made Oatmeal PB, Ginger Macadamia, and the undisputed champion:  Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles.   *drooool*

Last night's cookie flavor was Rocky Road.  On a scale of 1-5, I give em a 4.  They were super yummy and full of gooey delisciousness, but they transformed into giant pancake cookies (see photo) when baked that were a little on the greasy side.  I think next time I will try a little less oil and see what happens.  Taste-wise, however, they were awesome.  A generous helping of almond extract, TWO kinds of chocolate chips, and roasted almonds??  Kinda hard to go wrong with that combo.

the delicious, but pancakey, after
