Vegan Dessert: Snickerdoodles

This particular recipe comes from The 100 Best Vegan Baking Recipes by Kris Holechek. The aroma that lingers in the house after these have baked...mouth watering! Applesauce makes these deliciously moist until they're gone.

Vegan Dessert: Marbled Bundt Cake

Marbled Bundt Cake
Recipe from The 100 Best Vegan Baking Recipes by Kris Holechek. This cake is easy to make and each one is uniquely different based on how you swirl the dark and white batters. The pockets of melted chocolate chips are to die for!

Vegan Dessert: Black and White Cookies

NYC Black and White Cookies
From the book, Vegan Cookies Take Over Your Cookie Jar by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. These giant cookies have a cake like texture.  These were made using 1/3 cup of dough (batter) per cookie, but 1/4 cup would be perfect! My nieces were over the day I baked these. One had given chocolate up for Lent but she was still able to eat the "white" side. Her sister got the "black" side. Nice how that worked out! For the next batch I plan to try a chocolate buttercream frosting, which would taste richer and less sweet.
