Another Childhood Favorite Veganized!!! Again, make sure to read ingredients labels so you don't end up thinking you're makins something Vegan and then be dissapointed (If you want to, but, if you're giving these cookies to other Vegans, you might want to make sure because some Vegans might get upset if they find out it actually had animal products in it, just an FYI).

Regarding your comment in the ingredient list about cream of tartar...it is actually not vegan. It is a byproduct of wine making and making wine uses popular animal-derived fining agents used in the production of wine include blood and bone marrow, casein, chitin, etc. There are vegan wines, and wouldn't it be wonderful if those vintners could make us some truly vegan cream of tartar!
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1⁄2 cup vegan butter
- 1⁄2 cup shortening
- 1⁄4 cup applesauce
- 2 tablespoons egg substitute, powder (Bob's Red Mill is perfect for this)
- 6 tablespoons water
- 2 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar (Don't worry, even though it sounds weird, it is Vegan already)
