holiday cookie project: peanut butter chocolate pillows.

The Holiday Cookie Project takes an extra delicious turn with Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows. That’s right. We’re winding down Vegan MoFo 2010, chocolate and peanut butter style – and Isa has posted the recipe on the PPK (Post Punk Kitchen) site, here.

Bite into one of these and you’re met with a slightly salty, peanutty inside, enrobed in a gorgeously mellow, subtly sweet, chocolaty outside. Chocolate and peanut butter are two of those made in heaven flavour combinations – and these cookies take full advantage. This renders them fairly irresistible. If you use unsalted natural peanut butter as I did, I highly recommend going for the full cohort of suggested additional salt (you are offered a range). There is just something magical about that sweet and salty contrast.

A single batch of these tasty morsels was next to impossible to satisfactorily divvy up amongst expectant outreached hands.

My husband has squarely laid blame on my shoulders for his overindulgence.

These cookies can be found in Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero – but again, you can find the recipe here.

  2. I usually don’t like peanut butter but as soon as its mixed with cake or cookies I must try it! As a newly turned vegan I am so thankful to have found your blog as baking is my main hobby and I was starting to get worried that I wouldn’t be able to bake like I used to. Thank you! Also, your pics are great!

    • Yay! Thanks so much for your kind comment–I really appreciate it! And fear not–I was an avid baker before becoming vegan and I am even more so today :) If you have any questions, feel free to ask–I don’t claim to know it all but I’ve learned quite a bit these past years.
