This is great book! It's easy to understand and not too overwhelming for a non-vegan like me. The recipes are easy to follow, and it's not pretentious in the least. It’s geared toward a younger generation so some of the language is clearly generational, but the important information and recipes are clearly written so that bakers of all ages can easily understand it.

There’s a good explanation of the special ingredients at the beginning of the book so that you know what you’re working with. Some of the ingredients can only be found at specialty stores, but that’s to be expected when you’re going vegan. There is also a substantial list of substitutions that can be made for different ingredients if you happen to look in the cupboard and find that you’re out – both vegan and non-vegan ingredients are included in the list! Another helpful feature of the book is ‘cookie troubleshooting,’ which is at the beginning of the book. It details common problems in the cookies , what may have gone wrong, and how to make them better the next time!

It’s clear that these recipes have been carefully written, tested, and selected. The recipes themselves are detailed and hard to mess up! There is a huge variety of cookies to be made and none are too fancy that they’re overwhelming, or use such obscure ingredients that you’re going to spend a fortune on a whipping up a batch. Just tons of delicious-looking, simple, vegan cookies! Lots of gorgeous pictures, too!
