2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon cloves
2 teaspoon ginger powder
2 teaspoon allspice
1 cup margarine
1 3/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup apple sauce
I was stuck at a friends house making treats for a bake sale, when I decided to modify a simple vegan sugar cookie recipe into these darlings. They are soft and spicy and very very easy to make.
Stir together the flour, baking soda, and spices in a bowl.
Cream the vegan sugar, margarine and applesauce together in a large bowl, then gradually stir in the dry ingredients until mixed thoroughly. If it is too soft to work with, cover and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Take out the dough and drop 1 tbs. per cookie onto 3 or 4 greased cookie sheets. To flatten, dip the bottom of a vegan wine glass in a saucer of water, then press down onto each cookie until it is thin and flat. (make them thicker for softer cookies, and thinner for crispier ones - both are good) Remember to re-wet the glass each time.
Note: I'm pretty sure you could roll these out and cut them with cookie cutters instead, but I've never tried it myself.
Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until the edges are browned.
