Best Cookies Ever!!

I didn't get to blog about my meals Friday or Saturday, but really nothing too interesting there, so I'll just get to the good stuff.....


So I finally got to do some baking!


My husband and I had picked up some black and gold M&M's to make cookies. I was trying to find the perfect recipe to use these in. Well I found a recipe in Dreena Burton's eat, drink, and be vegan, and it was fabulous. They were her "You Got Peanut Butter in My Chocolate" Cookies. However I made some changes. I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of spelt flour and I didn't use the cocoa powder, so they weren't chocolate cookies. Using the M&M's made them no longer Vegan.


Here is a picture:



I can't describe how good these were. I loved the agave nectar and maple syrup in them. So good!

I have to go to work today : ( So hopefully I will post again tonight. Thanks everyone for all of your wonderful comments this past week! I always look forward to my blogging, even with my long days at work!

I think it's so cool that there are black and yellow m&ms available at a store. I guess there are patriots m&ms, but they're red, white and blue, which doesn't seem as exciting.

Also, I do this all the time, so it's completely hilarious to me - you said you followed that one recipe, but then changed almost everything about it! I do that allll the time. I like to say I was "inspired by" the recipe. :)

What a great idea--combining awesome vegan cookies with Steelers love:)

You sound like me, starting with a "recipe" and then mixing it up in all different ways till it becomes your own :-)
Hope you made it through work yesterday - I hate having to work on weekends since it makes it seem like the whole week is just one big blob without any break, even if part of the weekend is free. Hope yours wasn't too stressful.
