Vegan Snickerdoodles

Weekends are the perfect time for baking, no? Yesterday Annabelle wanted a cookie and, feeling a bit guilty for having to admit to polishing off the raspberry thumbprints we’d picked up from a local vegan bakery, I asked if she’d like to bake some together. (I know I’m not the only mom who eats cookies while the kids are sleeping. Nursing mothers need extra calories, right?) She enthusiastically agreed and I quickly went through my mental list of favorite cookies, comparing it to our currently minimal inventory of baking supplies. We had no chocolate on hand, and not much in the way of fruit or peanut butter. Snickerdoodles seemed like the obvious solution. I used to bake a darn good snickerdoodle way, way back in my pre-vegan days, but I hadn’t tried them in years. Veganizing and making other, healthier substitutions in the recipe from my mom’s old Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook worked like a charm, so I thought I’d share it in case you should like to give it a go, too.

Culinary Wanderings #5

Sourdough rye beginning its second rise.

It has been a crazy month for us, as our house was packed up relatively early on, leaving us with one saucepan, one skillet, one baking sheet, one cutting board, one mixing bowl, and enough dishes for a single meal. On one hand, that this is the bare minimum shows just how fortunate we really are. Of course it also means that there was no pureeing, no grating, and there were certainly no complicated multi-pan meals. For the past several days, there have actually been no home cooked meals at all, as even our remaining supplies have been packed up and we’ve moved to a hotel for the time being. The focus of the month has definitely been on nutrient-rich single pan meals, and meals that used up the odd ingredients we had remaining in our pantry. Continue reading
