these are cookies my mum makes that i have taken under my vegan wing. i’m sure the recipe is from somewhere, so i stake no claim to writing it, only to adapting it, BUT i also can’t give credit where credit is due. sorry cookieworld. but THEY BOY ARE THEY TASTY
- 3 sticks earth balance, at room temp!
- 1 c. sugar
- 3 1/2 c. flour
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 c. almond milk + 1 tbsp flour
- 7 oz unsweetened flaked coconut
- jam! i use fig and blackberry but you can do as you like.
cream butter and sugar until smooth, add vanilla and combine. add flour to butter mixture and stir until combined. roll into a flat disc, wrap it and chill for 30 minutes. when ready, roll into 1 1/4 inch balls, then dip each in almond milk mixture then roll it around in the coconut, making sure it adheres to the cookie. place on a parchment lined baking sheet (they don’t spread out too much so they don’t need to be super far apart). press your finger into the centre of each cookie, making a little well for the jam. if the sides crack, just press them back together, or just gently hold the sides as you make your jammy cookie wells. spoon in jam! i put fig in half of the cookies, and blackberry is half.
bake at 350 for 25 minutes then cool on a wire rack!
this makes 36 cookies.
