More awesome recipes from the Moskowitz/Romero team. I've tried about a dozen of the recipes and they're all perfect. Yesterday I made some Pumpkin Cookies to kick off Fall. Here's a picture to make you want them more:



The Tahini Lime cookies are my new favourite out of this book. So amazingly delicious:

I was so excited to see a recipe for graham crackers (to go with my chocolate candy and vegan marshmallows for s’mores) because they’re hard to find vegan; they all seem to have honey. But there’s no graham flour in them so it doesn’t look as though they’d have that distinctive graham cracker flavor. I’m so disappointed that I came very close to deducting a star from my rating. I guess I could experiment using graham flour and using the recipe given as a start.

Otherwise, this is an excellent coo

I don't think of myself as any sort of a cook, baker, etc. I got onto postpunkkitchen.com one day, and randomly decided to go for it; the directions made the recipe sound so simple! Two batches of oatmeal pumpkin cookies later, my coworkers were begging me to keep at it! If this book can make vegan baking that straight forward to me, they are whizzes! Add that to the fact that these vegan recipes make for desserts more delicious than the evil-loaded mass produced alternatives out there, and you ...more

Wow! This book is great. Every recipe I've made has turned out great. My favorite so far...Ginger & Macadamia Nuts!
Penelope
The recipes in this book are fantastic. I've only made a few so far but they've all been excellent, and I can't wait to try more. So far I've made the Cowboy Cookies and Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows. I got this book from the library but will definitely be buying a copy for myself (and my mother, who can't wait to bake more vegan cookies). The cookies don't taste "vegan"...this coming from a non-vegan (I'm just dabbling for now!) They are decadent, delicious, and easy to make.

Before baking an

I decided to make the leap into veganism in July 2011 after reading several books about the diet's benefits and I have never felt better. I once couldn't imagine NOT eating meat or dairy, but after experimenting with so many great cookbooks, it really has been an easy transition. I have slipped up a few times and believe me, your body will LET YOU KNOW that it doesn't want that crap anymore. It's a shame that vegan dishes get a bad rep - most I have tried have been fantastic. Even my husband, wh ...more

Sweet Christmas gift. :D I'm gawn learn howzta bake stuff nao.

So far I have only attempted two recipes: basic chocolate chip cookies and Banana Everything Cookies. Both cookies came out perfect. These were not only the first cookies I made from scratch, but the first ones I baked without burning their little cookie-bottoms. The authors include a lot of helpful introductory information on ingredients, tools, and troubleshooting. I'm looking forward to following more recipes, but at the same time,

A very appealing book written in an engaging style. I haven't tried making any of the recipes (yet) so I don't know if they work but the little hints suggest the authors do know what they are on about.

There was one irritating and unnecessary feature of the book - there are a couple of different cookie images which are repeated through the book, to fill space I imagine. They appear after recipes that are nothing like them. Why bother? It's just confusing and reminds you you've been deprived of a

I have read SO many vegan cookbooks lately and many use standard recipes changed with vegan substitutes (margarine instead of butter, "egg substitute" instead of eggs.) This one has recipes that don't rely just on subs and has more oil instead of solid fats. I've only tried the vegan samoa cookie alternative so far but we have a big list of recipes we'll be trying from this one. They look delicious and it's much more than your standard chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies.

Let me paraphrase Nixon and begin by warning you, “I am not a cook.” Growing up, it was the miraculous invention of the microwave that kept my family sustained. My mother hates to cook and figured any meal worth eating was one that could be ordered from a menu or zapped in four minutes or less. Thus, I did not learn to prepare even the simplest dinners until I moved out and got a place of my own. I have since learned that I actually enjoy preparing foods, but my skills still lag significantly.

Again Isa pleases us folk who dont want to be part of the horrid treatment that animals suffer in the name of milk, eggs and butter. I have tried a few of these recipes and they are super! My favourite is definately the Peanut butter blondie recipe! YUMMMM. If you are willing to give vegan baking a go I would seriously recommend these books. It has amazed me how easy it is to remove the dairy products in these beloved recipes. I still think as I pop a tray in the oven, "will it rise?" "will it t ...more
Kayla
This is a great cookbook! So far I've baked chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies and both were a success. Good instructions and the ingredients are listed in the order that they are used-something I find helpful. :)
Lea
A wonderful resource for eggless cooking (we can and do use dairy, but not soy and so modify the recipes accordingly), this has quickly become a well thumbed reference book at our house that we now turn to just as frequently as we have been turning to their prior Vegan Cupcakes book. We haven't made all the cookies (yet), but the sugar cookies are simple and tasty, cut and bake well. The espresso brownies are the fudgiest of all the various eggless brownies we've tried. The Cowboy cookies recipe ...more
Grace
So far I've just made the Easy Samoas and the Cowboy cookies--both have been really delicious, though this has also reminded me that I'm not really a cookie person (for some reason they're usually too rich for me & make me feel sick, a problem I rarely have with cake)--thankfully I've had other cookie lovers eager for me to give them away to them! One thing that does annoy me with this cookbook is that so many of the recipes use flax seeds, without directions for any other egg replacer if yo ...more
Melinda
Do cookbooks count on Goodreads? I mean, clearly I haven't read this book cover to cover, but so far it is blowing my mind. I am an, in general, an enthusiastic yet unskilled baker. I love baking. I also suck at baking. But every recipe I've made from this book (I've done 4 so far: the cocoa brownies, the blackstrap gingersnaps, the chocolate peanut butter pillows, and the whole wheat chocolate chips) has turned out perfect. I cannot take any credit. It is all due to the magic book.
Lauren
Go-to vegan desserts - so easy to make! Many of the recipes only require prep time and less than 20 minutes of bake time, so it is easy to turn around some cookies for a last-minute event. The recipes are varied, including brownies, breakfast bars and energy bars on top of the regular cookie fare.

While I love the earlier Cupcake book, this one seems even easier to use because cookies are more portable.

Great book that will get more than a fair share of use!

So far:

Cowboy Cookies: Really, really good. I thought they might be greasy with so much oil, but they're not. Just super tasty and very easy to make. Plus I didn't have to deal with eggs. I've never used ground flax in place of eggs before, but it costs next to nothing and works great. The first time I used peanut oil, but I have since used coconut oil and it really makes these cookies amazing.
Jamie
I love Isa Moskowitz's books! Most of the recipes are really simple, though more complicated recipes for more ambitious cooks are always featured. I made the Banana cookies and they were delicious! I also appreciate that a whole section for "wholesome cookies" was included. I have a few more to try out before I return the book to the library. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in healthier/vegan baking!
Maggie
I have only tried the chocolate chip cookies, they were delicious. I look forward to making more cookies soon!

Do not get the German translation if your English is good !!!!
I did and regret it, all measurements are still in cups but you get additional weird translations,
so i also got myself the original english version---maybe i give the german version away to some friend who has a hard time with english but would still enjoy the recipes.
The german version isn't super bad, but irritating enough for me to want the original.

The book itself is AWESOME !!!! Fantastic

I'm still planning to get a copy to work my way through, but so far, I have not been impressed. I made three recipes from this book; the first turned out alright, if a little too oily, but the other two required a lot of alterations. I think it's probably worth it, to eventually have a store of vegan cookie recipes, to work through them and discover the necessary modifications, but I'm unsure why my heretofore favorite vegan cookbook authors have written recipes that don't quite work.

So far I'v

I started my autistic son on a GFCF diet four years ago in the hopes that it would help to reduce his eczema and hyper-tantrums. It worked. The problem remained how do I make baked goods without animal product. This book is awesome. It has recipes for all tastes AND the ingredients are easy to find. Mind you, vegan ingredients are a bit more expensive. BUT...

I recently checked out (and then bought) the newest cookbook by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. I have several others by her, but this one is the most user-friendly one, in my opinion. All of her books are great, and I’ve made things from them, but some of her recipes can be a little involved. This book has many recipes that can be done quickly, though. So far, I’ve made the Caramel Pecan Bars (with sea salt on top!), Sweet Port Sesame Cookies, and Lemon Bars. The ca ...more

I love Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero's cupcake book, so I was delighted when a friend gave me her cookie book! While many of these recipes are clearly "veganized" versions of old recipes (think Joy of Cooking/ Betty Crocker/ Better Homes & Gardens), there's a tremendous variety. I'm drooling just thinking of this book.

Not all of the ingredients are easy to find. I now have a list of "baking goods" that I carry with me whenever I go to a different food shop -- I'm on the look o

We're not vegan, but a member of our household can't have dairy. This cookbook has a lot of variety, from classics to newer flavors. It's written in a friendly style with a lot of tips, and the ingredients seem like they'll be easy enough to find.

We've made the Chocolate Fudgy Oatmeal Cookies. It was a good first recipe to try because we make variations on oatmeal cookies often, plus we had all of the ingredients on hand. Fabulous! Yes, better than our usual (non-vegan) chocolate oatmeal cookies

I didn't like Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar as much as I like Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. First, the scope was a little less far-reaching, and since the sights were only aimed at a local cookie jar, not the entire planet, the recipes are not quite as win-over-the-omnis as the cupcakes were. As noted in other reviews, I'm a huge fan of color photos in cookbooks, but the photos did not do a lot to help dispel any myths or stereotypes about vegan food being somehow 'less.' Frankly, a ...more
Jess
With all of the other wonderful reviews of this book I don't think it will be necessary to go into detail about why this is the MOST AMAZING COOKIE RECIPE BOOK EVER. However, I need to emphasize that it is. I've done about 85% of all the recipes in this book, and thoroughly enjoy tweaking them and trying different mix-ins. One of my favorite, most versatile recipes is the whole-wheat chocolate chip cookie. I've done combinations like coconut and chocolate chip, raisin and chocolate chip, carob a ...more
Cheryl
I've only made three recipes from the book, so far (the "Oreos," chocolate bottom macaroons and the frosted sugar cookies), but they've all been great and I can't wait to try out other recipes. Other than the fact that it worked better squishing the filling for the mock Oreos most of the way before I put them between the cookies, everything's come out pretty much exactly as in the book. Though you may have to hunt for some of the ingredients, and they're definitely a little more expensive, it's ...more

We've tried several of the recipes from this book. They were incredible! Way to go Isa! Great ideas for those who are allergic to eggs.

Obviously I'm a fan of Isa Chandra Moskowitz. But this book is amazing. I have a huge sweet tooth, especially for cookies. This book was made for me - and you, if you like cookies. (Who doesn't?!)

So far I've made about 5 cookies from the book (it has about 100 recipes - still have a long way to go), but I haven't been disappointed with a one. People especially have liked the bar cookies I've made. So far the recipes are easy-to-follow, with correct ratios and produce delicious results. There are
