Peanut Butter & Jam Frosted Jewels
These are jewels cause they are super easy to make, they're vegan and they're so good.
1/4 cup earth balance margarine
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 cup of organic unbleached flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Soy vegan eggnog (enough to bind)
about 1/4 cup or so
Cream the margarine and peanut butter together with a wooden spoon. Add the sugars and mix well. Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Add as much vegan eggnog as required to making a easy to roll dough. Probably about a 1/4 cup or so as that is what I ended up using. Press together and roll into a cylinder - wrap in wax paper and refrigerate for a couple of hours or so. Roll balls - flatten with glass and make thumb imprint - add some yummy red jam and bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes depending on size you make.
Cool and drizzle with some vegan royal icing (icing sugar mixed with a few teaspoons of water until nice pouring consistency). A pretty cookie for the Vegan Christmas Platter!
And just to balance out all this sugar may I suggest a lovely green shake (cucumber, kiwi, orange, celery, apple, purple kale and spinach) compliments of Nicole !
