This has been a great Month of Vegan Food hasn't it! To finish up the month I am posting some cookie recipes as I promised yesterday. These are favorites! And I am gifting them to you!
Mexican Wedding Cookies:
1 1/2 cups vegetable margarine
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup candied pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream margarine, gradually add powdered sugar and salt. Beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and pecans. Blend in flour gradually and mix well. Bake 12-15 minutes, roll in more powdered sugar when cooled. About three dozen.
Candied Pecans: Place shelled pecans on cookie sheet and drizzle pecans in agave syrup and bake in oven at 225 until toasted. Cool.
Vegan Everything Bars:
Take all of your favs…peanutbutter chips, vegan butterscotch chips, dark chocolate chips, coconut, pecans …and sprinkle them over a cookie crust made from vegan vanilla wafers and Earth Balance. Pour 1 cup vegan condensed milk over the cookies and bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Make vegan condensed milk: In a saucepan heat 2 cups coconut milk, add 1/2 cup agave syrup and continue to cook until the mixture thickens and reduces by half.
Cookies and Kreme Cheeze Balls:
Mix 8 oz vegan cream cheese with 1/4 teaspoon each grated chocolate and cinnamon. Add in 4 oz ground up Oreos and just shy of 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Refrigerate until cold, form into balls and roll in your Oreo cookie crumbs. Refrigerate until chilled again and enjoy.
