First I’d like to give a shout out to Andrea from Very Vegan Holiday, who made an all-vegan Harry Potter-themed anniversary dinner to celebrate her 6-year anniversary with her boyfriend. This looks like the perfect anniversary dinner to me! Congratulations!
On to the cookies: Much like Harry himself, I had a very hard time figuring out which to choose: hallows or horcruxes? Hallows or horcruxes? Luckily my choice wasn’t a matter of life and death, but a matter of taste. I originally planned on making horcrux cakes based off these ones posted on Nom! Nom! Nom! blog (they even have a real black magic soul!), but had to write a paper for my muggle studies class and ran out of time so I just made these deathly hallows cookies. Since the trio is camping throughout most of the book I wanted to make something campy, so they are trail mix cookies with the deathly hallows symbol on top for all you believers out there.
Deathly Hallows Trail Mix Cookies
3/4 C peanut butter
1/2 C earth balance
1 1/4 C brown sugar
3 T nondairy milk
2 tsp vanilla
1 T ground flaxseeds mixed with 3 T water
1 3/4 C all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 C chocolate chips
1/3 C walnuts
1/4 C raisins
1/4 C shredded coconut
1/2 C chocolate chips for decorating
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cream together PB, EB, and sugar. Add milk, vanilla, and flax/water mixture and mix until combined.
Add flour, salt and baking soda and mix until just combined. Fold in the rest of the ingredients.
Drop by tablespoonfuls on a prepared cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for about 12 minutes (they will puff up and then flatten out a bit, after they have flattened and are golden brown they are finished).
Once the cookies are fully cooled, melt chocolate chips in the microwave or double boiler. Transfer to a ziplock bag, cut the corner off, and decorate.
Variations: Add 1 tablespoon instant coffee in with the liquid ingredients for extra immortality. Add different nuts, seeds, or dried fruit to your pleasing.
