Make Her Creamsicle Cookies

I hope you forgive me - but I've only been feeling like food posts recently.  I think it stems from being forced into quick non-creative dinners for the last year or so.  Suddenly having the time to cook makes me so happy.  So happy in fact, that I'm making up cookie recipes.  Without further adieu:

Make Her Creamsicle Cookies:

• 3 tbsp turbinado or coarse sugar
• 1/2 c earth balance (or another vegan margarine) melted
• 3/4 c sugar
• 1/4 c fresh clementine juice
• splash of soy milk
• zest from 3 clementines (that roughly makes 1/4 c juice)
• 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
• 2 c all purpose flour
• 2 tbsp finely ground corn flour (masa harina works fine)
• 1 tbsp cornstarch
• 1/2 tsp baking powder
• 1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350˚ F.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.  Spoon coarse sugar onto a plate and set aside.  Stir together margarine, sugar, clementine, soy milk, zest and vanilla together.

Add rest of the ingredients and blend until a pliable dough forms.  It should press together easily with your fingers.

Roll a little over a tbsp of dough into a ball.  Press the ball into the coarse sugar, forming a disc.  Coating top side of cookie.  Place flattened disc onto the cookie sheet.  Bake sugar side up for 16-18 minutes until lightly golden around the edges.

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for two minutes until transferring them onto the rack.


Love you, mean it
