Vegan RecipesThere is a famous Seinfeld quote in which Seinfeld says, “If only people would look to the cookie, all of our problems would be solved!” While these amazing vegan recipes for black and white cookies might not solve the world’s problems, they can certainly make you temporarily forget your problems! They are just that good.

Here is the ingredient list for these vegan recipes:

  •  1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  •  1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  •  2/3 cup applesauce
  •  1 cup granulated sugar
  •  1/4 cup stick of vegan margarine, softened
  •  1 1/2 teaspoon – 2 vanilla extract
  •  egg replacer for 2 eggs
  •  1 1/2 cup – 2 cups powdered sugar
  •  3 Tablespoons soy milk
  •  1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  •  2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

You can start preparing these vegan recipes by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine your flour, baking powder, and salt together well with a whisk. Placing your applesauce in a fine sieve, let it stand for about 20 minutes. In a separate bowl, you’ll need to mix together the drained applesauce, sugar, and margarine. Once well blended, add in your vanilla extract and egg replacers. A little bit at a time, add the flour mixture in and blend together well.

On a parchment lined sheet, place a small amount of dough in little blobs until all the dough has been used. The cookies should then be placed in your oven and allowed to bake for 10-15 minutes. Once they are done baking, they should have a spongy consistency, similar to a cake. Let them cool on wire racks for at least 15 minutes.

For the frosting, Combine 3/4 cup powdered sugar, 1tbls soymilk and almond extract. Stir with a whisk until smooth. Frosting should be quite thick so add more sugar accordingly. Spread white frosting over half of each cookie. Let stand for 10 min or until frosting is set.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine the powdered sugar and cocoa. Add in 2 tablespoons of soy milk and stir it with a whisk until it is smooth. Spread the chocolate frosting over the un-iced half of each cookie. Let the cookies set for about 10 minutes, and these vegan recipes will be ready to eat! Each recipe is going to make about 12 cookies.
