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.


  1. Cream earth balance vegan margarine with 1/4 cup powdered sugar, add water and vanilla and mix.
  2. Add flour and mix well.
  3. Finally mix in pecans. (The batter will appear dry!).
  4. Form into 1-inch diameter balls, place on an ungreased cookie sheet and chill for one hour.
  5. Bake in a slow oven (roughly 300 degrees Fahrenheit) for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. While still hot, roll in remaining confectioners' sugar.
  7. Store in an airtight container.
