Isa and Terry's Peanut Butter Pillows

It was one of my co-worker's birthday this week, so I naturally felt compelled to bake her a delicious treat in celebration! One, because birthdays are fun and special and ought to be celebrated and, two, because I want everyone to know how wonderful vegan food can be...particularly vegan baked goods! Soooooo, I made the Peanut Butter Pillows, from the upcoming Vegan Cookies cookbook by Isa and Terry! When Isa posted these on the PPK blog, I instantly knew these must be the birthday treat of choice! I LOVE chocolate and I LOVE peanut butter even more, and these cookies were perfect! In Isa's picture, the peanut butter filling is much taller and puffy-looking, but mine are shorter and wider, as I flattened my cookies a bit before baking. They were still amazing, and I'm sure would be delightful either way. I really just wanted to see what it would be like this way, but I will probably try the non-flattened kind next time. These cakey and chewy little devils just beg for a glass of cold soymilk to be had with them!

Damn, you and Nora are killing me with these! Seriously, so tempting. I just made strawberry shortcakes so I can't bake again tonight lest I be overwhelmed with baked goods to eat, but damn, these are so going on my to-make-super-soon list.

I've bookmarked that recipe for when I feel the need to be bad - they look so delicious.
