palo alto reserve red wine, no idea if it was vegan..

baked a half batch each of tahini-lime cookies and nyc black and white cookies from vegan cookies invade your cookie jar. for the black and whites, i didn’t make the frosting, but added extra orange and lemon zest, lemon juice, and poppy seeds to make big, fluffy lemon poppyseed cookies

    1) so how did they compare to ABC???

    2) how were the tahini lime cookies? They sound amazing.


    emily's reply:

    1) they were super super fluffy- almost like cake in the shape of a cookie! good, but not quite the same dense chewiness that i appreciate in abc cookies. didn’t quite satisfy the craving. should we make this an ongoing project where we try to recreate the exact texture and flavor of the abc’s?

    2) so good! these might be my new favorite non-chocolate cookie. the dough tasted like tahini, but baking them brought out the lime zest and resulted in the perfect balance. i love baking with tahini because it is reminiscent of peanut butter, but the relative bitterness of it is great blended with sweet flavors. and these cookies did turn out dense and chewy, which is my favorite cookie texture. i guess i shouldn’t post the exact recipe on the blog, but let me know if you want it and i’ll email it.
