Is Christmas really Christmas without gingerbread? The smells, the taste, it’s all just Christmas joy! There’s no bigger gingerbread fan than my husband, so every year I make up a batch of gingerbread cookies especially for him.
It’s pretty easy to make delicious vegan cookies. When I discovered the winning recipe for vegan sugar/shortbread cookies, I became the designated Christmas sugar cookie maker. In the spirit of the holidays, I thought I’d share this deliciousness with you.
I feel it necessary to say up front that these are THE BEST, and they are ALL VEGAN. I wanted a proper vegan cream cheese frosting to get the classic carrot cake feel…
Of course, when you think of breakfast or brunch, invariably, you will think of eggs, bacon, coffee with cream and sugar. That is, you will think of foods that are the opposite of vegan. I swear to you though, a vegan brunch as familiar as your old standard of bacon, eggs, and toast with butter, is totally possible and delicious.
I think there is a common misconception that vegans can’t have baked goods. The traditional recipes are FULL of milk, egg, butter — all those animal by-products. Fortunately there are MANY vegan alternative recipes to the beloved traditional baked goods… one of my favourites, the Cinnamon Bun.
