Black and White Cookies

What you need: 

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

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt stirring with a whisk. Place applesauce in a fine sieve (I use coffee filter paper), let stand for 15 min. Combine drained applesauce, granulated sugar, and marg in a large bowl, mix until well blended. Beat in Vanilla and egg replacer, add flour mixture and mix until blended. Drop dough onto parchment lined baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes or until set. (not browned) Cookies should have a spongy cake like consistency. Cool on wire racks.
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.
Combine 3/4 cup powdered sugar and cocoa, add 2 Tablespoons soymilk stirring with a whisk until smooth. Spread chocolate frosting over the other half of each cookie and let set for 10 min.

Yummmmmm! I love these. The cookies taste like angel food cake..and the icings are great! I didn't strain the applesauce (what's that for?)..and I didn't have any almond extract for the white icing (I used a little vanilla). I also didn't have enough white a couple cookies are just black (not that there's anything wrong with that..). Very pleased!

I'm so excited to try this recipe - I always see these in the bakery case at Starbucks and start drooling. Yummm...


This is my favorite cookie!
I forgot to mention that when you are icing the cookie, ice the bottom of the cookie to get a nice flat surface.
