Dreaming of Cookies....
I often get my inspirations for new cookie recipes from dreams. It is a rare occasion when I can remember my dreams. Early this summer, I wanted to create a new cookie for the Verses popup we had with DeFeCreative in Los Angeles. The ingredients literally came to me in a dream. I remembered a dessert I had with a dear friend with the flavor profile of Rosewater and Pistachios, honey and rice. I am already a fan of rosewater as it is the ingredient of the first chocolate truffle I made
The next morning, I started to get my ingredients to make a vegan cookie. Trusting the creative process, I set out to create our newest cookie. Once the cookie cooled, I tasted it and realized that it needed something. I decided to make a quick icing with rosewater. This added a nice sweetness to the richness of the cookie.
For Veggie Connection in June, we made a vegan-glutenfree version of it. It made my day to meet a young customer who fell in love with our cookie in the first bite. She said with a smile beaming from ear to ear, "I don't know how you do it. I really like this cookie. It's delicious."
In a short time, the Rosewater Pistachio vegan cookie has become a top seller at our popups. Similar to our other runaway hit Dulce De Leche Cookies, this is too becoming a classic in our offerings.
