Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies PinThese Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are perfect for your holiday parties. The sweetness of the chocolate combined with the peppermint give them a refreshing mouth feel. The stark contrast between the dark brown chocolate cookie and the snow white sugar is visually stimulating. They truly are finger licking good.

One trick we learned from My Darling Vegan is to dip the cookies in granulated sugar before the powdered sugar. Somehow, that creates a barrier between the moist cookie dough and the powdered sugar so it doesn’t melt into the dough. Very ingenious.

PLAN AHEAD: The dough needs to be refrigerated for 4 hours before you can bake it. Or, you can also put the dough in the freezer for 1 hour if you’re short on time. We discovered this trick when we forgot to plan ahead while making these cookies with our niece. Necessity is the mother of invention 🙂

Vegan Pancakes

Vegan PancakesThis Vegan Pancakes recipe tastes like it has dairy and eggs, but doesn’t. The pancakes are light and fluffy, and fast and easy to make. This is another recipe that falls into the category of “if you don’t tell them, they won’t know it’s vegan.”

We like to cook our pancakes on an electric griddle so they cook more evenly and we can cook several of them at one time. But you can cook them in a large skillet or square pancake griddle on the stove, too. It just takes longer. That’s how my mom has always done it.

Enjoy topped with organic maple syrup or your favorite fruit preserves. Goes great with Veggie Sausage. Makes about 24 – 3″ diameter pancakes.
