-Just a note: I make these every year for Christmas! This recipe never fails!
Last year I saw Tina made a sugar cookies using tofu. I searched far and wide for the Nasoya Silkened Creations she used in the recipe... I ended up emailing Nasoya and it turns out that they discontinued it. So I tried this recipe instead.
I must admit... This was my first time ever eating tofu. Tofu is intimidating to me and doesn't have the best reputation. Plus it sure does look weird...
Especially all mashed up.
Once I mixed it with the rest of the ingredients it was ok.
The dough looked just like sugar cookie dough.
After it was all mixed I put it in the fridge for a little bit to firm up. When it wasn't too sticky I formed it into a log and rolled the log in sprinkles. I covered it in plastic wrap, pressed the sprinkles down a bit and put it back in the fridge.
Then I took a sharp knife and cut cookies out of it. Probably 1/2in thick?
I pressed a couple chocolate chips (not vegan) in the middle before baking.
They were perfect.
So soft on the inside.
The sprinkle thing really did it for me. They were nice and crunchy. You gotta try it... Even if it's just for regular cookies.
WWSS? (what would santa say?)
He's getting em' on Christmas Eve!
So even my dad liked them... Here's a question for you....
When I told him they were made with tofu and vegan butter he said "WHY?". I didn't have an answer. Why vegan? How are they better for you? I just like trying new things... Does anyone know the health benefits?
