Current social distancing orders are driving untold numbers of home-bound vegans into their kitchens to knead bread dough and hand-mix cookies as a way to cope with life under quarantineand that stress-relieving pastime just so happens to be what VegNews editors have been doing a lot of lately, too. We know that one of the best ways to ease anxiety can be found right in our own kitchens, and these days more than ever we cant imagine life without our mixers, spatulas, and fully stocked baking cabinets. Here are the eight recipes we turn to on days when were in need of a good baking session. Be warned: these recipes will make you want to start preheating your oven, too.

1. Turtle Oatmeal Cookies When in need of a cookie that is equally comforting and impressive, VegNews New Products Editor Sarah McLaughlin turns to Angela Liddons Turtle candy-inspired oatmeal cookies, which are hearty and chewy and studded with pecans, chocolate, and Medjool dates. Ive made them for friends and family and theyre always a hit, McLaughlin said. A really good cookie if you like texture and crunch and chewy all in one.

2. Soft Peanut Butter Cookies VegNews Senior Editor Richie Bowie delights in cookies that are rich and sweet, which is why his go-to happens to be this peanut butter-loaded cookie made with vanilla bean pastea not-so-secret baking staple that adds a heavenly vanilla aroma and flavor that will change your life.

3. Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies The classic chocolate chip is what Assistant Editor Aruka Sanchir bakes up when in need of a sweet treat. Theyre super easy, use simple ingredients, and smell amazing, Sanchir said. Better still: you can make the dough and freeze it for later, or layer the dry ingredients in a mason jar to leave at your neighbors front door. Do you really need further convincing?

4. Peanuts Bake Shop Cookie Kits VegNews Digital Editor Tanya Flink fully admits that she fails hard when it comes to cookie baking. Ask me to make a pie, tiered cake, croissants, or virtually anything else, and Im game, but cookies rarely turn out for me, she said. On days when a cookie craving hits, though, Flink turns to Peanuts Bake Shops vegan cookie mixes and transforms them into slutty cookie bars. I use the Chocolate Chip mix for the base, add a layer of Oreos and dollops of peanut butter on top, then smooth a layer of the Midnight Chocolate Chunk dough on top of that. Bake it off, and youve got an incredible cookie bar! Super moist, tender, gooey, and perfectly sweet.

5. Salted Chocolate Cookies These soft chocolate gems are a spin-off of an old recipe from VegNews News Editor Nicole Axworthys vegan food blog that she frequently revisits when a chocolate craving hits. Made with a dash of balsamic vinegar and topped with flaked sea saltboth of which enhance the undeniable chocolate goodnesswe have no doubt youll find them irresistible, too.

6. Chewy Dark Chocolate Cookies This now-viral recipe from United Kingdom-based sandwich shop Pret A Manger is the cookie Senior News Editor Anna Starostinetskaya turns to when shes in the mood to bake. Studded with almond pieces and chunks of dark chocolate, its no wonder theyve quickly become her favorite. Our tip: Stash them in the freezer so you dont eat them all at once.

7. Life-Changing Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies VegNews Editorial Assistant Jocelyn Martinez doesnt shy away from a veganizing challenge, and these cookies are no different. The recipe calls for a chicken egg, but Martinez simply substitutes flax egg. These cookies are perfectly soft and chewy, she said. When Im on a cookie kick, this is always my go-to. Kale Junkies recipe is easy, quick, just the right amount of sweet, and can be easily made vegan.

8. Chocolate Chip Cookies VegNews Senior Online Features Editor Jasmin Singer sticks to the tried-and-true when it comes to cookie baking. These classic chocolate chip cookies use all the standard ingredients along with heaps of semi-sweet and dark chocolate chunks. Take it up a notch by sandwiching the freshly baked cookies between a thick layer of vegan vanilla ice cream, and devour promptly.
