Are you a vegetarian or a vegan?  Any kind of cookies in particular?

Check out vegweb.com. Loads of awesome recipes. Almost all the recipes get reviewed by the users and lots of people post comments about what they liked about the recipes, what they changed or had trouble with, stuff like that. That's always where I go when I'm looking for a new recipe. http://vegweb.com/index.php?board=144.0

recipezaar.com is good too.  You can sort by categories (soup, main dish, dessert, etc.) and also dietary (kosher, gf, vegan, etc.).  I've used that a lot when I'm looking for vegan recipes. 

Peanut butter cookies are super-easy to veganize -- I use the recipe on the Jif container and substitute for the egg.  (I use either half a mashed banana or the ground-flaxseed-and-water, just depends on what I have around.) 

And a lot of people swear by Vegan with a Vengeance.  Here is a list of dessert recipes from Isa's website -- there are a few cookie recipes.  I haven't tried any personally yet.

And they're not really cookies, but you could also do haystacks -- melt chocolate and margarine (add a little peanut butter if you want) and then mix with any/all of the following: pretzels, chow mein noodles, shredded cocoonut, chopped nuts, Rice Krispies, bits of dried fruit.  Drop by tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet or wax paper and refrigerate until hardened.

My mom's gingersnaps are vegan.  I can get the recipe for you if you'd like -- I have it but I'm too lazy to type right now  Embarrassed

Oh, also not cookies (but sooooo good).  Do a search here on Craftster for zucchini brownies.  I've made them and they're fabulous.

Best of luck with your baking!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies EVA! (My own recipe!)

1 cup shortening (all vegetable, dur. ^^)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup applesauce or mashed banana
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup choc chips

Mix the applesauce/banana with the baking powder and let it sit for a bit. It's going to expand to about 2/3 cup. (It's cool. ^^ )

Cream shortening and sugars, mix in the applesauce/banana stuff. Stir in baking soda, salt, and vanilla. Mix in the flour 1/2 cup at a time, then stir in the choc chips.

Drop dough onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8 or 9 minutes.


These cookies are so good! I make them for my vegan friend, and other people steal them not knowing they're vegan. ^^ They can't tell, and the best part is that you don't need any wonky ingredients.
Hope you like them!
