All of the recipes are consolidated into one recipe book and are handed out to the guests. My recipe titles always state that the cookies I make are vegan (such as Spiced Vegan Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies). I want people to know that you do not have to use animal products to make a yummy cookie.
At the end of the party, each guest can take cookies home. One year I received an email from someone telling me that her husband thought my oatmeal raisin cookies were the best he ever had. My cookies always get positive comments from other guests. That just proves to me that a cookie does not need to contain eggs and butter to be yummy!
