Cinnamon Thumbs. Candy Cane. Thumbprints. Pinwheels. Coconut Dips. What’s your favorite holiday treat? Seriously – is there anything better than Christmas Cookies? Ummm – not much. There is so much tradition and love wrapped up into those little cookies and other treats.
Oh – and the other things wrapped up in them? Sugar. Butter. Flour. (And now I am singing the theme from Waitress having just seen it on Broadway). Sugar. Butter. Flour. Not always bad – but if you are plant based – or aspiring to be – you will want to skip the butter. Having some plant based treats to have at home or bring to your next holiday party will help everyone get into the holiday spirit!

Do you have your own favorite? Be sure to share in the comments. Or if you have a favorite cookie recipe, it’s very likely that you can veganize it yourself! Fork and Beans has a great guide on vegan egg substitutes and the Frosted Vegan does a fantastic job outlining the steps of veganizing a non-vegan cookie recipe on her blog.
