Oh yes, this happened. If you haven’t yet joined a vegan meetup group in your area, I suggest you do so pronto so you can have fun get together filled with delicious cookies like this! I am the organizer of a vegan group in the San Francisco Bay Area and it is so much fun. Robin and I try and come up with unique things to do with the group. It’s usually food-related, but we also go for hikes, roller skating and dance parties. I really like hiking and dancing and Robin is really good at coming up with distinctive parties, like our Nightmare Before Christmas Party. We also just had a cupcake party. My favourite to date was our tea party.
This time round we had a Girl Scout Cookie Exchange. Robin was recently talking about Girl Scout Cookies and I told her that I had never had one. Her jaw just about dropped to the floor and she said that needed to be corrected asap! So we set up the meetup and asked everyone to make a vegan version of a girl scout cookie.
We had Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies:
Robin made Samaos:
You can find the recipe here. They didn’t turn out very thin, but I have never tried the original. I LOVED the way these turned out. It was my first time making gluten-free cookies and have them turn out so well. They were delicious. And so simple to make! I didn’t temper the chocolate and they still turned out well.
We had the cookie party on π day, so we also had some pie to celebrate. I made a raw pie, but forgot to take pictures. Hope you had a fun weekend and enjoyed some delicious pie =)
What fun potlucks have you been to recently?
