Vegan Mofo #10: Black, White & Drool Allover
Yesterday being the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, I had no school: job or graduate school. So while those who practice fast, I practiced creating gluttonous vegan treats. Bakery staple, the black & white cookie! I remember having these when I was a kid… half of them, I should say, as I only ate the chocolate side. This was my first attempt at anything from My Sweet Vegan. Hannah’s recipes are indeed decadent, most call for a ton of white flour and a ton of sugar. And I’ve yet to have an occasion that requires that much sweetness. But I am spending the long weekend with an old friend and her brand new baby, so I’ll make an exception.
Then the chocolate. What a mess I made of the vanilla. The chocolate glaze was thicker, less drippy. This was actually the only snag to my completing this recipe. The thicker chocolate glaze took away from that bakery smooth texture…
Oh well. They were delish and sure to be a hit with Waco.
