Peanut Butter Snickerdoodles

I’ve been on a cookie tear this weekend. Friday, I made a batch of Vegan Richa‘s Nan Khatai cookies for a Diwali celebration over the weekend. While mine spread out and didn’t stay in neat little balls like hers did, they tasted fantastic! Like spicy, chewy sugar cookies. Incredible.

Happy Diwali! ~ which begins this weekend. Diwali is the Festival of Lights and marks the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and the light of inner knowledge over ignorance. It is celebrated with fireworks and lights, and people also clean house and light lamps to invite the presence of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and abundance, into their homes. For many in the Hindu community, it is the New Year, and a perfect time to reevaluate one’s priorities, making changes if needed to be on the right path in life.

And during this week, entries have been coming in to win a copy of Vegan Richa’s Vegan Diwali Sweets ebook! It’s been fun to read everyone’s comments and see all of the entries.

And the winner is ~ Nikki!

Nikki, please check your email for the e-book.

And everyone else can go here to purchase a copy. Remember, Richa’s husband is matching the income from it, and all funds go to help animals in need after the recent cyclone in India, so in addition to all of the wonderful recipes, you’re helping the animals!
