This year I decided to do some vegan baking around the holidays. I usually bake one or two items, but this year I decided to do more. I even held a kid's Christmas cookie baking and ornament making party. I had seven kids here (including my two) and we all made two different kinds of cookies (candy cane cookies and cut-out sugar cookies). All the baking was vegan. What a great time was had by all!
Almost everything I made came from recipes from "The Joy of Vegan Baking" by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. I have made many things from that book over the last couple of years. If you don't have it, I highly suggest getting it. I think it's a must-have for every vegan who ever bakes. I have never made anything from that book that wasn't great. This year, from "The Joy of Vegan Baking" I made cut-out sugar cookies (that we decorated), snowballs, peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and fudge.
It was the first time I've ever made vegan fudge and I have to say it is amazing! Everyone who has tried it loves it. The vegan fudge is so darn good! I am planning on making another batch before Christmas, so that I can give some away. It's super easy to make and tastes incredible (Note on the recipe, I did use chopped walnuts, and I forgot to put in the cocoa powder).
