This week at Temple Taste Kitchen there was another one of our Great cookie bake-offs with two up and coming junior chefs and kitchen alchemists. My assistant Santino and I were experimenting with a curry cookie vegan-style where our kitchen companion/competitor Hazel was creating a wheat free version of traditional chocolate chip cookies. Hard to out taste a chocolate chip cookie however, the divine flavors of our inspired coconut curry cookie surprised all of us. I don’t know that I have ever had a curry cookie and yet, the first time I made this recipe I sensed I was on to something Special! Although, this whole idea of curry cookies may sound bizarre I promise you it’s actually very similar to a ginger spice cookie. The sweet blend of spices from Temple Taste Simply Sweet Curry meld elegantly with the vanilla and coconut to make a deliciously rich cookie. Believe it or not this unique cookie is now my favorite choice and that’s saying a lot since Temple Taste makes some really Amazing healthy cookies!
