vegan girl’s night: vegan chocolate chip gingerbread softies

On Saturday night, my friend Kristen’s apartment was being invaded by a whole wack of Monopoly playing, beer drinking boys (Cornelius included), so she came by for a bit of a respite. Our plan: chill out with some relaxing girl movie dvds and partake in some serious vegan snacking. I had made some chocolate chip gingersnaps just before Kristen rang the bell, but wasn’t sure how much I liked them at first. They weren’t as gingery or molassey or as dark as I usually like my gingersnaps…plus, they were a lot softer than the traditional ‘snap. After indulging in more than a few bites, both Kristen and I declared these vegan beauties a winner. And like all good things, they sure didn’t last long.

    Kickpleat, these “softies” sound delicious! I’m a huge fan of ginger and chocolate together – one of my favorite combinations, really. Now, when is the next girl-movie-and-gingerbread-softies night, hmm? Vancouver isn’t so far away…

    No problem, Jenny! I’ve actually got a few great vegan cookies in my archive if you feel like browsing.

    Rorieo, it’s a pretty tasty ginger cookie for sure!

    Thanks Ivonne!

    Tanvi! Long time, no blog!! Nice to hear from you again. I certainly like the idea of adding candied ginger to the mix. Yum…it’s almost enough of a pull to mix up another batch!

    Kickpleat, these cookies sound like the perfect marriage of all my favorite things! Coffee, chocolate, ginger, molasses, (in that order, heh) who could refuse?? I may even sneak in some candied ginger, you know, to guild the lily a bit.
