Thing-a-ma-jigs (No Bake Cookies)
adapted from Gems from the Wheat State, pg. E63, contributors Sylvia Thrush, Irene Brandt, Christine Anderson, and Jodi Smith
makes 20-25 cookies, depending on size
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tbsp dark cocoa
1/2 cup soymilk
1/2 cup vegan margarine, softened
sprinkle of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp chocolate extract
3 cups quick cooking oats
In a large soup pot, cook sugar, cocoa powders, soymilk, vegan margarine, and salt until boiling. Boil 1 minute, then remove from heat. Stir in Biscoff Spread and mix thoroughly. Add extracts and then oats. Combine thoroughly. **Get your pans ready before beginning recipe because once the oats are added, it starts to set quickly** On parchment or waxed paper, drop mixture by tablespoon into cookie shapes. This mixture will dry very quickly, so work fast and DON'T double or triple the batches unless there are several people to do this last step! Let cool for 15 minutes. Can be frozen once in cookie form.
Oh bajeez, these are SO freaking tasty. The Biscoff Spread takes them to a place previously unknown by my taste buds...cookie spread used in cookies. Ha! I only let myself eat one but have the rest of the batch freezing for some time later. It's going to take all my will-power not to break into them...
