Additional comments:

My 12-year-old adjusted this recipe from an old family favorite one day when she was home alone and wanted to suprise me with some vegan cookies.
We didn't exactly have "enough" of several crucial ingredients so she substituted - played around with the recipe and the end result was the most wonderful cookies EVER!!

Her friends at school have PAID her to make these cookies for them - and they don't even know they're vegan!

You can add nuts, raisins, coconut, whatever… but we like them just as they are!
