My blog friend Elizabeth is an Orthodox Christian. She keeps the fasts decreed by the Church and therefore has a large number of recipes that just happen to be egg and dairy free. When I saw the Chocolate Brownie Cookies I knew which one we had to try first.
BROWNIE COOKIES -makes 9 dozen
1 1/2 c vegan margarine 3 c white sugar
4 1/2 t vanilla 4 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c cocoa 1/2 t salt
3/4 t baking powder and soda enough water to make a fairly thick dough
Cream margarine and sugar, add vanilla. In another bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Add to the creamed ingredients and add enough water to make a fairly thick dough (around 1/2 c). Make 1 inch balls (I have a scoop) and flatten with a glass dipped in sugar. Bake 350F for 8-10 minutes.
Thank you so much Elizabeth. Ella’s been doing so well with her new diet, but was going to revolt soon if she didn’t get some cookies/chocolate.
