Not your typical cookies, these are bursting with flavor, and very quick to make.
Makes one dozen cookies
1/2 cup vanilla flavored soy or almond milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vegan butter substitute
1/3 cup sliced almonds (raw or lightly toasted)
1/3 cup chopped candied orange peel
½ teaspoon orange zest (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and oil a baking sheet.
Cook the milk, flour, sugar, and vegan butter in a small saucepan over low heat for 1 minute or until melted.
Use a wooden spoon to mix until integrated with no lumps. Do not let the mixture come to a boil.
Remove from heat and stir in the almonds, orange peel and optional orange zest. The mixture will be somewhat thin.
Spoon evenly onto the baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies firm and the edges just begin to brown very lightly.
Let the cookies cool for 3 minutes on the baking sheet and then remove them with a spatula. Cool on racks.
Store in a sealed container.
