The cookie monster goes Vegan!!

Aaahhh...Cookies....Better than biscuits, cooler than cake. Our friend Bum was visiting for a couple of nights and I cooked up some Martha Stewart inspired Peanut Cookies for chewing on while we played turn-abouts on F-Zero-X on Andy's computer. They are cookies of the big-flat-chewy kind, but I left mine in for 5 minutes too long as it is really hard to tell when they are done and were a bit too crunchin'. My advice is to take them out the oven just before you think they are ready, so the edges go crispier when they come out the oven and the middle stays chewy and yummy.

Makes 12-15 mega cookies
Peanut Cookies

125g Vegan Marge
85g Peanut Butter (crunchy/smooth)
200g Sugar
1 eggs worth of egg substitute
1/2 tspn vanilla extract
125g plain flour
3/4 tspn baking soda
Roughly chopped chocolate and/or peanuts(both recommeded!)

1/ Heat oven to 180.

2/ Mix up all the wet ingredients until creamy and smooth.

3/ Add dry ingredients until combined, then add nuts and choc if using.

4/ Place spoonfuls onto baking parchment (on a tray), bearing in mind they will spread out quite alot. I got nine cookies on a regular sized square baking tray.

5/ Cook for 15-20 minutes, keeping in mind my advice above.

6/ Leave on a cooling rack to cool then munch away while beating boys at 1990's computer games!
