Vegan MoFo, Day 20: Coconut Cream Jumbles

Happy Saturday, everyone! Today, we're going to an evening wedding three hours away, so I'm ecstatic that I succeeded in sleeping last night. Hooray! I was so happy that I woke up and made cookies.

{cookies!!!}


These are originally called Coconut Cream Jumbles, though they used heavy cream. I subbed this out with lite coconut milk (canned). See how that makes more sense now?

Coconut Cream Jumbles
adapted from Meatless Meals, page 79
makes 24 cookies--supplies carbohydrates and some fat

2 cups AP flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup granulated sugar
2 Ener-G "eggs"
1 cup coconut milk (canned)
3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. In a stand mixer, make your "eggs" (I just whipped them up with the whisk attachment, and it worked beautifully!). Add the sugar to the "eggs" and mix together. Alternate adding the flour mixture and coconut milk to the mixer, ending with flour. Add the shredded coconut. Chill mixture. Spoon dough into cookie shapes onto parchment paper-covered baking sheets and sprinkle sugar on them. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes.

The verdict: meh. It made for a kind of wet dough, though I love the color. They aren't the best cookies I've made so far from this cookbook but could make for some EXCELLENT pancakes. Hmmm, must try this soon.

Enjoy your Saturday!
