I just love these cookies not only do we encourage people and remind them to be environmentally friendly but they’re also very tasty and fun to make. You can make it a family activity and create beautiful memories.
They are super easy and it only takes 15 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to bake. Not to mention that these Earth Cookies are completely vegan! So enjoy.
3 1/2 cups of flour
1 stick of vegan butter or margarine
1/2 a cup of vegetable oil
1 1/2cups of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla (clear preferably)
1 1/2teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Natural food dyes
Mix sugar margarine and vegetable oil.
Then add the banana cinnamon and vanilla.
When everything is well mix add the salt and flour.
Separate the dough in three sections add food coloring on each section (one blue one green and one yellow.)
*Note: you can use a plastic glove when handling the food color that way you won’t stain your hands.
Start cutting the dough, Place pieces of the colored dough on the wax paper make sure the colors are separate when you complete placing the dough on the wax paper. Place another piece of wax on top of it and use a roll pin to mix well. Let it cool for an hour.
*Note: you can use a big ziplock bag. It will be easier to store in the refrigerator and when using the rolling pin.
Finally use a fork to make cracks on the dough, then use a circular cookie cutter and place on a baking cookie sheet. Sprinkle cinnamon then bake for 8 to 10 minutes in 400°F. Make sure the oven is preheated before you place the cookies in the oven.
Let them stand on a cooling rack. And enjoy.
*Note: if you would like them to be softer only cook them for 6 to 7 minutes.
