Vegan MoFo Day 21: Southern Coffee Cookies Recipe #SundaySupper

Southern Coffee CookiesFall is here… for most people. A favourite fall memory for me is getting out of bed with a chill still in the air and walking downstairs to the kitchen. There, my mom (who I’m not sure slept) would be in the kitchen hovering over a cup of coffee. I would look at the pot to judge if interaction was possible. The emptier the pot the more I could say in the early morning. If it was her first cup we were to pretend she didn’t exist.

Southern Coffee Cookies-2In the early am in the fall though the house would be a bit chilly, not cool enough for heat but not warm enough to keep the steam from drifting off of my moms mug. This SundaySupper is all about fabulous fall food. There’s so many to choose from but since I’m making cookies all this month and had coffee on the mind I decided to whip up some Southern Coffee Cookies for the coffee lover in my life. These are dunkers, don’t be shy!
