First, I wanted to let you know we have 3 days left, and only $1,660 away from our goal. PLEASE help spread the word. Anything gets us closer to our goal.
I wanted to share a really good recipe with you all since we are so close to reaching our goal. This is a recipe I learned to make (non-vegan) when I was a baby and we make it every year for Christmas. It’s tradition. No biscotti, no Christmas. This is my vegan, gluten free version of the cookie that taught me to bake. I hope you all love it as much as I do.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1 lb. all-purpose GF flour mix (with xanthan gum)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 oz. vegan shortening
2 tablespoons Earth Balance
Mix all these together like a pie crust.
1 cup applesauce
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Add these to the “pie crust” mix. Knead until shine-y.
Roll into thick snakes. Cut into slices about half inch thick with a butter knife. Bake for about 10-15 minutes.
8 oz (half bag) of powdered sugar
1/2 stick of butter
1/4 tablespoon vanilla or ameretto (or a million other flavors)
2/3 cups soy milk (?)
Whip up until well mixed. Dip tops of cooled cookies.
