Chocolate Crackle Cookies

My good friend Jess gave me a great book for my birthday: Martha Stewart's Cookies. This book is great because it has almost 200 cookie recipes! My favorite thing about this book is the table of contents, instead of listing all the cookies it shows a full color picture of every cookie with the name and page number under the image. This is the perfect way to search for a cookie!

I've had this goal of making one cookie a week, but since we haven't had earth balance in the house and I've been beyond busy, I haven't made much.

I did make these wonderful crackle cookies.
These are basic chocolate cookies, rolled in powered sugar, then baked as normal.
I enjoyed these cookies and I would make them again when I am trying to impress because they are just so pretty. Everyone in the office enjoyed these and I was told to tell anyone who wanted to make these not to wear black while trying to sneak eating these. The powered sugar will leave little specs on your shirt.
I should note that this recipe was not vegan, I veganized it with a powered egg replacer.
*Because I fear Martha Stewart I will not post the recipe. Sorry. Borrow the book from your local library, or just take your favorite chocolate cookie recipe and roll it in powder sugar before baking.

That book definitely sounds great, since it's all about cookies!! :0) Those crackle cookies look quite delicious. And really, there's no need to fear Martha Stewart ;0)

Thanks Veggiegirl!
As for Martha Stewart, never under estimate her legal team!

Great to see you posting again! Those cookies are very impressive indeed--I just may have to try them! My library doesn't have a great selection of vegan/vegetarian cookbooks, but I bet they have Martha Stewart!

Ooooh- those sound yummy!

I agree with your fear of Martha Stewart. I would not want to mess with her!

Oh, my mum used to make these when I was a kid and they hold such great memories for me! Your version looks terrific, too (much better than Martha's, I'm sure!) ;)

You can find Martha Stewart's Recipe for these on the website!

You have to substitute a few things for vegan things (butter for margarine, egg for egg replacer...).
