    oh noooo! I just think about cookies :/
    I actually went down to M&S and got summer fruits pudding (vegan), a jazz apple and foccacia bread.
    Nana's cookies are only available in icky gluten free double chocolate at the moment.

    Ooo that sounds cool. I know, it's really hard sometimes. I hate knowing how amazing M&S cookies are. In fact, all cookies.
    I have a cookie obsession. I don't miss cheese, or yogurt, or even cakes, but cookies... urghhh. I would kill for an M&S white chocolate cookie right now. Sometimes I think, maybe I could just have one week of going back and getting a fix of all the things I miss... which would mainly just be cookies from various places actually.
    Thing is, I KNOW that they ar really easy to veganise, and I have like a million recipes saved on my desktop, I'm just so lazy I never get round to making them.
    Nana's ones are good though, the choc chip and the oatmeal and raisin, which I think is slightly better actually. I know what it is about the double choc one and the lemon ones though, they are gluten free, whereas the good ones with nice texture are only wheat free. When I was in the US I stocked up and had a mix of both coz I didn't really know the difference. They also do just plain original "Vegan" ones which aren't wheat or gluten free - presumably these would be even better.
    I just wish I wasn't so lazy.

    Me to! it's a cookie thing and laziness thing. In america though i'd be fat on nana's and boston cookies, which don't even pretend to be healthy hehe.
    I'm just a bit obsessed in white chocolate chip, ginger, oat meal raisin cookies... I tend to make them whenever I don't feel too lazy, it's annoying to think supermarkets could make them for us and no one would tell the difference!

    I know, supermarkets just make no effort whatsoever. It's annoying when I go into say Sainsbury's or M&S and see a wrap or sandwich which could quite easily have been vegan, but they've just stuck in like 5% yogurt dressing or something, like, why? I'm sure nobody would even notice if it wasn't there.
    I work in the co-op and we had a sandwich which I thought at first was vegan til I read the ingredients which had at the end... "butter (1%) ....1%?!?! :eek: Why bother?! We do have vegan jam and CUSTARD donuts though, and puff pastry mince pies, apple pies and fruit shortcake biscuits, so that makes up for it slightly
    Have your cookies turned out good? Whenever I try and make them (which has been a grand total of twice) they always turn out like flat cakes, way too fluffy and not dense. I think I'm being to stingy with the fat, trying to be healthy.
    Also have you made white choc ones? They were always my favourite. I've never tried vegan white choc but part of me thinks it'll never be the same.

    yep, i'm pretty sure it's a conspiracy deal between dairy/egg farmers and supermarkets. Custard doughnuts vegan!? No way! I knew the raspberry co op doughnuts were but not the custard! I'll have to get my daddy to take me to the co op hehe.
    My cookies always turn out amazing (sorry to brag! hehe) you have to be unhealthy, as with shop bought cookies, to make them cookie like. Vegan with a vengeance chocolate chip cookie recipe is great for making cookies identical to those from tesco, sainsburies or M&S. I break up plamil white chocolate into chunks when I get hold of some instead of using dark chocolate, and sometimes add cinnamon, oats, raisins. Vegweb.com is useful for this to.
    Plamil white chocolate is surprisingly amazing, i think it's actually better than non vegan white chocolate as it tastes less like sweetened condensed milk and more of cocoa butter and vanilla. I think you'll love it! I prefer it to non vegan stuff.

    Mmm, I'll need to get a hold of some of that. I don't have vegan with a vengeance but I'm sure I can find the recipe online somewhere. I know what I'm going to be doing after my last exam on monday! :yes:
