Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

From a serious post, back to cooking...we now return to your regularly scheduled programming, lol.

Tonight I had dinner with my family. They picked Pizzeria Uno. (Did I mention I hate chains?) Their vegetable soup is vegan, so I had a bowl of soup. After dinner, I skipped over to Whole Foods and purchased the two ingredients I needed in order to test Catherine's Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookie recipe.

These cookies were easy to mix up and I can honestly say that it is the best vegan chocolate chip cookie I have ever baked! Take a look at the beautiful cookies in the picture. There is another rack full of them cooling in my kitchen. Two of these cookies are not like the others! ---I love chocolate chip cherry cookies, so I added some dried cherries when there was enough dough left for eight cookies. This rack has two of the cherry cookies on it.

Thanks Catherine for letting me test these! I'll share a few with people at work tomorrow. I'm Off to get some exercise in before I make the "blog rounds" and go to sleep.

If I could eat chocolate chip pecan cookies all the time I think I could be a vegan.

Those cookies look so good.

Those look really good. My weakness: anything dessert (and vegan of course).

oh, i do think that if I had some of these in my house, I wouldn't have just eaten half a bag of mediocre trail mix...I need to do some baking. You dont' by any chance know of a vegan banana bread recipe?

Yum yum, looks great! Pity about having to have soup at the restaurant - at least they had something vegan though.

Thanks for the review on my page. When I went vegetarian, I read so much on nutrition and weight loss. Even more since I went vegan. I think I am just too hard on myself. Thanks for the advice and congradulations on going vegan!
