Have you always wondered what to bring to a Black and Pink event?
Well, Black and Pink cookies, of course.
On the screen today, I’ll share with you a tasty recipe that makes an abundance of treats…perfect to bring to your next prison abolition meeting or organizing event. Most folks need a bit of sweet sweet vegan support to do all the amazing, fierce things they do. And, if anyone needs a little cajole, it doesn’t hurt to give ‘em a cookie.
Oh, Goodness. Here we are again. Cookies. Those delightful balls of goodness that melt down into delicate, sugary discs. Oh, loves, it’s the end of the world. This is it. I cannot continue to bake cookies like this! Is there ever a case of too many cookies? The sugar-addicted farmer would probably not agree with me, but things are going to change around this kitchen. More cabbage, carrots and vegetables coming to a screen near you. But, anyhow, here’s another recipe I created which I am confidant will fill your kitchen with a spicy, end-of-winter/beginning of spring sugar high.
Hello, dears! I bring to you today a homage to the first cookie I made in the Home Ec/Shop class I took when I was 11 years old. I remember that it was a really different baking experience than I was familiar with. It wasn’t fun. It seemed competitive, like, for whatever reason it was important who got done first. And then, you had the bell at the end of the class signaling that you were going to be late to your next class and you also haven’t even finished baking or cleaning up your station! Ah! No time! No licking of spoons! Stress cookies!
So, cookie week began with a minor hitch. It's Passover. I don't really "keep" Passover or other Jewish holidays involving fasting/food restrictions, but I felt it was important to try and figure out a way to honor the tradition as a festive cookie week practice. So, off to the store for farfel (broken up matzo bits) and Matzo Meal (ground up matzo) and realizing afterwards, I could have made these products very simply at home with a box of matzo, a food processor and/or my hands.
This week started out with a gluten-free-vegan cookie inspired by the farmer. A desire for mango sticky rice, but a need to adapt to the sweet fixations of cookie week, led me to believe that I could make a cookie that resembled both. What I found was that creating cookie recipes involves a lot of tasting dough, sugar highs and subsequent crashing. Wow. I’ve not had a sugar high for a long time. It felt both really great and really terrible.
IT MADE ME RECONSIDER COOKIE WEEK.
It's one of those weeks where you are still craving sweet, warm discs straight outta the oven, with a cup of tea, a book in tow. Maybe a cat cuddle in the sun. Spring sunshine is here, with a winter chill. Sigh. There's no reason to sigh too loud though because…it's COOKIE WEEK!
It has been decided!
