Sensational Snickerdoodles

Who doesn’t love snickerdoodles as an occasional treat? Just make plain sugar cookies, roll them in a little cinnamon sugar, and snap... you've got snickerdoodles! This recipe is from the Vegan Yum Yum blog. It's quick, easy, and sure to please.


Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
½ cup non-dairy margarine (try Earth Balance)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
¼
cup applesauce or 1 prepared Egg-Replacer
1 ½ cups flour
¼ tsp. cream of tartar
¼ tsp. baking soda
cinnamon sugar (for rolling)

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, margarine, and vanilla extract; add applesauce or prepared Egg Replacer (if using); whip (or whisk) until light and fluffy.
  2. Whisk the dry ingredients together; add 2/3 dry ingredients to whipped mixture and whip until combined; add remaining flour and mix by hand.
  3. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour; when it's chilled, line cookie sheet with parchment paper; using an ice cream scoop, make balls of dough (each ball will be 2 Tbs. of dough, if you don’t have a scoop).
  4. Roll each ball in cinnamon sugar; using a fork, squish dough out into cookie shapes.
  5. Bake at 375º F for 10 minutes for chewy cookies, 12 minutes for crunchy.
  6. Remove from oven and let sit for 30 seconds (they’ll be very soft when they come out of the oven); gently remove cookies from baking sheet and let cool for a few minutes on wire rack before serving.

Diet & Kidney Health

Eating a plant-based diet lowers levels of potentially toxic phosphorus levels in kidney disease patients, according to a study published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. Kidney disease patients must limit their intake of phosphorous, found in dietary proteins, because their bodies have difficulty ridding themselves of the mineral. In these patients, high levels of phosphorus can lead to heart disease and death.

The study examined the effects of vegetarian and meat-based diets on phosphorous levels in nine patients with chronic kidney disease. Each participant ate a vegetarian or meat-based diet for one week and then waited two to four weeks before eating the other diet for a week. Even though the two diets had equivalent protein and phosphorus concentrations, participants had lower phosphorus levels after they ate the vegetarian diet.

Baking for Charity

The recent Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale was a tremendous success! Over 150 groups participated, raising approximately $50,000 for charities. This success is due most of all to the wonderful bake sale organizers and volunteers who have shown the delicious diversity of vegan baked goods to people all over the world, while raising money for a wide variety of worthy causes.

The Dougherty family is one of the many inspiring groups participating in the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. And they didn't let a little rain ruin their plans! With the help of dedicated family members Ryan, 8, AJ, 7, Nate, 4, and Maia, 2, they held their recent vegan bake in the wet weather, and donated half of the money raised to their local Humane Society.
