Leah’s Evildoodles
(adapted from “Wolffie’s Snickerdoodles” from “La Dolce Vegan” by
Sarah Kramer – my idol!)

Topping:
3 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Cookies:
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg (optional)
mixture equivalent to one egg of Ener-G Egg Replacer
3 additional Tbsp of water
1/2 cup vegan margarine

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar
and cinnamon to make the topping. Save that for later.

In your mixer, stir together the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking
powder and salt (and nutmeg if you decide to use it). Turn the mixer
on and add the egg replacer (pre-mixed first!), water and vegan
margarine. If the mixture looks too sticky, add more flour 1/8 of a
cup at a time as the mixer continues to mix. Spray a cookie sheet or
use parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Roll the mixture into 1 1/2
inch balls, then roll in the topping mixture before placing on the
cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Crystal’s Fudgacado Truffles (adapted from this recipe)

You’ll need:

1 avocado, ripened

1/2 cup vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance)

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup cocoa

3 cups powdered sugar

1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

Method:

In a medium saucepan, melt the margarine over low heat.  Puree avocado with margarine in food processor or blender until perfectly smooth. (Be sure there are no chunks of avocado left.)

Return mixture to saucepan over very low heat and add the rest of the ingredients, adding the powdered sugar a little at a time.

Once all the sugar has been added, the mixture should be thick and glossy like candy. Place the fudge in a bowl. Refrigerate for about half an hour, or until the fudge is the consistency of playdough. Using your hands, roll a tablespoon of fudge into a ball and roll in coconut. Return finished fudge balls to the refrigerator until set.

Caroljean’s Drunken Brownies (original recipe found here)

1/2 Package Silken Tofu (3/4 Cup)
1/3 Cup Margarine
1/2 Cup Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate, roughly chopped
1/4 Cup Dutch Processed Cocoa
3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar, Organic
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 Cup Unbleached Flour, sifted
1/3 Cup Brandied Cherries*

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Line the bottom of a brownie pan (9×9) with parchment paper. Sift the flour and set aside. In the bowl of a food processor, blend the tofu until it is just smooth. Prepare a double boiler, or place a heat proof bowl over a simmer saucepan of water. Melt the margarine and add the chopped chocolate; stirring occasionally, until melted.
To the tofu add the cocoa, salt, sugars and vanilla; combine well. Stir the melted chocolate into the tofu mixture. With a spatula, fold in the flour, combining until it is just moist. Stir in cherries, do not over mix.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for approximately 25 minutes or until just set and shiny. (Try not to over bake or scorch the edges.)

*Brandied Cherries

1 pint Bing Cherries, pitted (I used Rainer Cherries & Peaches)
1/4 Cup Sugar
Good French Brandy

Pit the cherries and place in a seal able container or jar.
Sprinkle over the sugar and pour over enough brandy to cover.
Seal, shake, and wait.
Store in the fridge or any other cool dry place.
Shake occasionally and test, if necessary.
Sugar should dissolve and cherries should absorb the brandy anywhere from 4 – 6 weeks. (Mine have soaked for about a year)
