Here’s how to make them under a low broil in your own kitchen oven. Yay!

Lemon Poppyseed Colossal Cookies: #193 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

You’ve heard of lemon poppyseed cake and muffins, but why not cookies? Megan found this recipe from Sommer that combines the soft, moist goodness of the cake into a giant cookie. We adapted them here to be dairy-free. They’re also very nice broken up into vanilla ice cream.

Panda Oreo Cake: #151 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

Plant-based desserts are very fun to make and can be even more delicious than ones made with butter – but no judgment at all if you’re a dairy fan. This was a kid-crafted creation at our house, including homemade chocolate sandwich cookies and marshmallowy frosting. We also had to play the song “Panda” from theContinue reading “Panda Oreo Cake: #151 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments”

Grandma’s Fudgy Brownie Cookies: #110 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

My British Grandma used to make these for teatime when she was still with us. They’re fudgy and decadent.

This one’s for you, Grandma! 🙂 This isContinue reading “Grandma’s Fudgy Brownie Cookies: #110 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments”

Linzer Cookies (aka Jam-Jams): #93 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

Linzer cookies are an Austrian holiday treat. Think of shortbread cookies sandwiched with strawberry or apricot jam and dusted with powdered sugar. The texture mellows and gets less crunchy over time, so they’re actually just right a day or two after baking them. Feel free to freeze leftovers, if there are any! This is partContinue reading “Linzer Cookies (aka Jam-Jams): #93 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments”

Fudgy Cookie Brownies: #65 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

What do you get when you cross a brownie with a cookie? Something so good you have to taste it to find out! And it’s as easy as dropping spoonfuls of cookie dough into a pan of brownie batter before baking. These are fantastic straight from the oven or warmed up another day with vanilla ice creamContinue reading “Fudgy Cookie Brownies: #65 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments”

Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies: #46 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

I always have the ingredients for these cookies lying around the house. They’re chewy, warm, sweet cookies that can cheer anyone up, and the cookie dough is amazing too. Plus because it’s vegan, you don’t have to worry about eating raw eggs in the dough. We like to save some of the dough uncooked inContinue reading “Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies: #46 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments”
