Vegan with a Vengeance cookbook, along with one of the best Peanut Butter Cookie recipes ever, so go get it. When I'm in the mood for something sweet, this book never disappoints.
And if that doesn't convince you to at least try this recipe, here's a note I just received from a friend... "I woke up thinking about those molasses cookies you brought to Toshis last time... would you share the recipe with me? They were the best ones I've ever had."
Uh huh, they're that good!
Sparkle Ginger Cookies
Recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance
4 T turbinado sugar (sprinkled on top of cookie)
2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 c canola oil
1/4 c molasses
1/4 c soy milk
1 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350*. Lightly grease two cookie sheets. Place the turbinado sugar in a small bowl.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices. In a separate large mixing bowl, mix together the oil, molasses, soymilk, sugar and vanilla. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and combine well. Roll into 1-inch balls, flatten into a 1 1/2 inch diameter disk, press the cookie tops into the turbinado sugar and place 1 inch apart sugar side up on a prepared cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes, let cool on cookie sheets for 3-5 minutes, transfer to cooling rack.
