Macadamia Ginger Cookies! GF/V

Macadamias and ginger make the perfect cookie combination. Seriously. If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself! This golden recipe wouldn’t be in “vegan cookies invade your cookie jar” unless it were fantastic.

MACADAMIA GINGER COOKIES

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius and line two baking trays with baking paper.

In a separate bowl, beat together 2/3 cup oil, 1/3 cup soy milk, 2/3 cup raw sugar. 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar, 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp coconut extract.

Drop about 1 tbsp of mixture per cookie onto baking trays, leaving about two inches between each cookie to allow for spreading. Flatten slightly.

Choc chip cookie dough scoops! V/GF

Who doesn’t love cookie dough? All of the cookies I make taste so good straight from the bowl in dough form, but this is a treat made especially for lovers of unbaked delights!

Another fave from “vegan cookies invade your cookie jar”.

CHOC CHIP COOKIE DOUGH SCOOPS

In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together 1/2 cup nuttlex or other vegan margarine, 2 tbsp raw sugar, 1 cup brown sugar (dark brown, preferably), 1/4 cup non dairy milk and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence until creamy and fluffy.

Scoop small tablespoons of dough onto waxed paper and set in the freezer until firm (about an hour).

If you wish to smooth out the balls once they’re firmer, feel free to do this (a spoon works well).

Store in the freezer in a loosely covered container.
