Cookie Month!

Officially, February is National Pancake Month. But for me, it's cookie month! That's because my 2010 Go Vegan wall calendar features a delicious Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookie recipe by Sarah Kramer:

Each month, vegan cookbook goddess Sarah Kramer's calendar contains a different recipe. And I've vowed to make every featured dish. For weeks, I've been eyeing this scrumptious cookie recipe, which combines my very favorite cookie (chocolate chip) with my very favorite fruit (coconut).

I made this batch last night and they were perfect. Just the right amount of soft, sweet, and chewy. My co-workers devoured the whole plate in less than an hour. Thankfully, I put a few back for myself at home. Now I'll just have to conjure up the self-discipline to restrict myself to one cookie a day.

By the way, I found the chocolate chip coconut cookie recipe (and a cute video of Sarah Kramer making them) re-printed on Everyday Dish here. I promise these cookies will not let you down.

I didn't know Sarah Kramer had a calendar - looks like fun. The cookies look delicious - chocolate chip cookies are so good on their own, I'm sure they'd be amazing with coconut.

Those cookies look so tasty! The whole wall calendar thing is such a fun idea, especially when it involves cookie recipes.

Even though it's already the end of February, I might order that calendar. Your cookie review convinced me almost instantly.

where did you buy the calendar? hmm..off to Google for it, lol :)
I love that each month has a recipe, especially since I'm only just learning how to cook..it would be good reinforcement to get in the kitchen.
