I've had a very exciting week so far. Got to create a whole new range of recipes. This includes also some fancy drink recipes that will be coming out next month. I also signed up for the Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op, which will ensure that I get to torture my husband Thomas, with a whole summer of fresh organic veggie and fruit goodness.
Speaking of fruity delicious goodness, I have been experimenting with lots of Vegan and Vegetarian recipes. The food is technically healthier, but there are also some kick ass recipes in there. I also know several fabulous people who have expressed the interest to me to post more Vegan recipes.
Now I know, I know… You’re thinking blech…. Vegan… Please please, don’t take that attitude until you’ve bitten into one of these fluffy, sugary biscuits of love. These cookies are super duper amazing. Plus they’re pretty darn easy to make.
Vegan Pear & Golden Raisin Sugar Cookies
20 min prep time
12-15 min cook time
12-15 servings, (depending on how big you make the cookies.)
· 1 cup almond milk (I use non-sweetened)
· ¼ cup of granulated sugar, plus extra to sprinkle on cookies
· 2 cups of AP Flour
· ¼ cup of orange juice
· 1 Tablespoon of orange zest
· ¼ cup of canola oil
· 1 teaspoon of baking soda
· 1 Tablespoon of baking powder
· 1/3 cup golden raisins
· ½ teaspoon salt
· 1 cup of chopped Pear
Preheat oven at 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Mix your dry ingredients, flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside
Then mix almond milk, orange juice, canola oil, golden raisins, and orange zest in a separate bowl. Slowly combine this into your dry ingredients. (Don’t over mix them!)
Then slowly mix in your chopped pears into your cookie dough.
Use an ice cream scoop to ladle out cookie dough onto parchment paper. Don’t worry if they become super flat.
Bake for 12-15 minutes and sprinkle with more granulated sugar after they come out of the oven.
