Pumpkin Cookies, White Cookies

The newspaper actually had a vegan cookie recipe in it. I want to try them out sometime. Although, I'll replace the shortening with Soy Garden as shortening is generally rather foul.

Pumpkin Cookies

1 cup shortening

2 cups sugar

2 cups pumpkin

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

4 cups flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 cup dates

1 cup nuts

Mix first 4 ingredients until creamy. Fold in remaining ingredients. Bake in 375 degree oven for 10-13 minutes.


And here's a veganized version of white cookies. They sound interesting...

White Cookies

4 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup shortening/margarine

1 cup sugar

1/3 cup milk

Equivalent of two eggs (egg replacer/approx. 1/3 cup applesauce)

1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cut in shortening as for pie crust. Mix together the rest of the ingredients. Mix liquid and add to flour mixture. Chill dough thoroughly, roll thin and cut out. Bake at 375 degrees for 6 minutes. Watch closely so they don’t get too brown on the bottom
