    blucoat's Note:

    This egg-free and dairy-free recipe for a chewy gingerbread cookie is from Sarah Kramer's cookbook, "La Dolce Vegan!" (2005) and reprinted in today's local paper. For vegan frosting, use five parts icing sugar to one part water, blending until thick. or you can use chocolate peanut butter spread. Dough must chill for 2-4 hours. (While baking the first batch, return the dough to the fridge to chill it so dough doesn't stick to the rolling pin. Allow cookie sheet to cool before reusing.)

      These are easy to make and taste really good. Author doesn't kid that you need to put the dough back in the fridge between batches - works best when the dough is super-cold.

      Great recipe, really happy with how the dough worked out. The dough definitely needed to be cool, but I found "too" cool didn't work so well. I left it in the fridge overnight (maybe that's why), and needed about 5 minutes before it was optimal temp to roll out. Definitely use some flour rolling it out, but not so much that they became dry. Rolling out on a silpat or plastic placemat really helps. Kids were able to work the dough pretty well too.
