Hopefully he won't remember that I said when he's 8...I should have said 12.
Anyway....TONIGHT....Coop and I veganized a much loved cookie...the snickerdoodle. It was fairly easy. We used Earth Balance instead of butter and applesauce instead of eggs. They came out great. Yum yum yum. I plan on trying many more vegan baking recipes in the future....
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine Earth Balance Vegan whatever
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375. I recommend lining your cookie sheet(s) with parchment if you have it.
Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in a separate large bowl.
Cream butter and sugar. Add in applesauce and vanilla. Mix until well blended.
Add flour mixture in batches and mix well.
In a shallow bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons cinnamon. Scoop cookie dough (I used a tablespoon sized cookie scoop) and roll into balls. Roll balls in cinnamon sugar mixture and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
Bake 9 to 10 minutes until they have spread and tops have cracked a bit. Cool for a few minutes on cookie sheet then transfer to a cooling rack.
Make around 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
