Halloween is my favorite holiday ... well, except for Christmas and my birthday. Actually, Thanksgiving is pretty cool too (yea for Tofurkey!). But I do love dressing up, slathering on the fake blood, and going out with friends on Halloween. I also love to bake for the occasion. Last night, I made these cute fall-themed Vegan Sugar Cookies:
I couldn't find a plain ol' sugar cookie recipe in my cookbooks, and the ones I've made from various Internet and Veg Times recipes in the past ended up hard and crunchy. I like a soft sugar cookie, and I remembered a recent cookie post by Katy at Legally Vegan. She swore this VegWeb recipe for Just Like Granny B's Sugar Cookies was the best thing ever!
And ... oh ... my ... goddess, she was right! These are the best sugar cookies I've ever had. They're soft. They're chewy. They're perfectly sweet and buttery. I will NEVER use another sugar cookie recipe again. Promise.
For Halloween, I'm going to my Me-Maw's Halloween party in the early evening. My grandma throws a family party every year and we eat hot dogs (veggie dogs for me!), chips and dip, and dessert. I'll share posts of my dessert contribution over the weekend. Until then, trick or treat!
