Bake sale this weekend

I'm still not "back" to normal so this post will be short. Even though my back is still hurting, I was able to bake all afternoon for a bake sale, test recipes for Celine and Joni's new cookbook, and bake tomorrow night's dessert. Here's some of the results.

I tested Oreo Cookie Cookies (top photo) for the cookbook, and just like the title implies, they have actual pieces of Oreos (well, Newman O's). Some of these will go to the bake sale because they're much too dangerous to have around the house!

I also made Cinn-ful Sweet Potato Cookies from Go Dairy Free. I made them with pumpkin purée, and they're great. I added raisins and dried cranberries. (Thanks, Alicia, for making the recipe available.)

And even though I recently said I would try other recipes from Sweet Freedom, I compulsively made butterscotch blondies, yet again. Sheesh.

If you're in the Seattle area this weekend, stop by Sidecar For Pig's Peace and buy some vegan baked goods. You'll be helping to support the Pigs Peace Animal Sanctuary.


  1. I hope your back is feeling a little better, and, as always, your treats look amazing! You are sweet to bake for the bake sale while in such pain :)


  2. Yummy looking cookies. Still baking even though you're hurting? Hmm - that can be pondered. :) Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Courtney and Blessedmama,
    My back is so much better that I was able to do the baking with just a little help removing pans from the oven. Every day it's a little better. I've been doing yoga stretches and that helps a lot.

  4. Glad to hear your back is feeling better. You're such a trooper to be baking for the bake sale! They look awesome, especially the oreo ones. :-)

  5. Good, I'm glad to hear you're getting better and that you have help. :)
