    Vegan (or vegan-izable) Christmas Cookies

    This is a collection of cookie receipes that are either vegan as listed, or that I've successfully made myself with some substitutions. Note that some call for butter, but subbing Earth Balance margarine or shortening has always worked for me. Same with subbing soymilk for cows' milk. If you have a recipe that fits this category, please let me know!

    It's really hard to imagine what a wonderful combination this is. Make it once and you'll be hooked! Why this recipe works: these cookies combine the best of two worlds - a chewy molasses cookie with a tart lemon filling. To keep the cookies soft and chewy, take care not to overbake them. They are done when the cookies puff and just start to crack on top (they should sink into flat cookies when you take them out of the oven). For the best flavor, use fresh spices (replace your spices if they are more than one year old) and dark (or robust) molasses, avoiding black-strap molasses, which will make the cookies bitter.

    Recipe #491581

    This is a modified version of the recipe from Baking: A Commonsense Guide. When they first come out of the oven, they're chewy and delicious. When they cool, they become crisper, ideal for dunking in coffee or tea. (And of course they're still delicious.) I added allspice just because I like it. If you use sweetened coconut, you can probably cut back on the sugar some.

    Recipe #388005

    Well, here it's the third week in July and it's raining and we're experiencing unseasonably cool temps. What's a Cookgirl to do stuck inside the house all day? A: Bake cookies! This recipe is from the Delicious Living magazine and elaborated by me to give the cookies a Middle Eastern flavor. Gluten-free, egg and dairy free-easy! The barberries, cardamom and orange blossom water were all my addition.

    Recipe #460567

    These cookies are wonderful (as are the other Linzer Cookies) but a little different. They have a touch of the South (pecans) and a lovely touch of spice. Make them in stars or hearts or any shape you like.

    Recipe #118109

    I got this recipe at a Vegan baking class recently. (I've made a few modifications, so it's not exactly the same.) These cookies are melt-in-your mouth sweet and salty and crunchy--I love them! **Update: I've recently discovered that these are also stellar if you substitute chopped dried mango for the cranberry.**

    Recipe #271612

    Found on These cookies are a vegan adaptation of a recipe by the author's grandmother. Posted for ZWT6 so that the vegans in the tour have some recipe options :) The preparation time includes the chilling time.

    Recipe #426813

    I'm not sure it was possible to have another variation on a chocolate chip cookie, but it is! This is the first CCC recipe here to use malted barley syrup. Gives the cookie a rich malty flavor.

    Snow white buttery toasted pecans that look wonderful placed on your holiday table. This is Bird's own recipe for something so simple and yet so yummy! Great for gift giving as well. These can be enjoyed year round. Be careful as they can become addicting! If you'd like to send your senses into a yummy frenzy of 'hot & sweet', try adding a dash or two of cayenne pepper into the mix. ;)

    I don't know where this one came from but my high school cooking class. This was one of the cookies we made for the Christmas Dinner they had on the last day of school.

    Recipe #263792

    A traditional Christmas cookie delicious at any time of year. Chilling time not included in preparation time. From the Pennsylvania dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.

    Another Danish/Scandinavian recipe. Cardamom is in the ginger family and has a pungent flavor. These cookies will disappear quickly (Unless you don't like cardamom!)

    Pecan Balls - Mom made these at Christmas time.. but I think they're great anytime!

    Recipe #68900

    Incredibly yummy vegan truffles.

    Recipe #33995

    This recipe is quick, easy, dries hard and shiny and tastes good too. I originally got if from Allrecipes.

    Recipe #64015

    Recipe #254826

    This recipe makes a crisp cookie, they are very good.

    Recipe #402245

    This is EXACTLY what I had been looking for. I have made a ton of candied nut recipes and nothing quite works for me. . .this one makes the cut! Feel free to use walnuts instead of pecans. They are heavenly as a snack, ask a housewarming gift or simply on top of a salad. This is a twist on a couple different recipes already here on Zaar.

    I had these sweet and salty saltines covered with chocolate and topped with nuts which I tweaked at a friend's house. Very addictive little treats.Use topping to suit the occasion.

    These are lighter then the ones without the Rice Krispies. I got the recipe from the "Classic Holiday Cooking" cook book. You can shape into eggs for Easter!
