My husband is more of the baker in our family than I am, but together we made Snickerdoodles.

This recipe has been adapted (veganized) from Betty Crocker:


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance (softened)
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable shortening
  • 2 eggs worth of Ener-G Egg Replacer* (3 tsp powder whisked with 4 Tbsp hot water until foamy)
  • 2 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsps. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsps. ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Mix 1 1/2 cups of sugar with the Earth Balance, shortening and prepared egg replacer.  In separate bowl sift dry ingredients:  flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.   Blend dry ingredients into wet.  Put in fridge for about an hour to keep cookies from flattening out.  Mix rest of sugar (1/4 cup) and cinnamon together in a bowl.  Then shape dough into 1 1’4 inch balls.  Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set.  These are awesome warm from the oven with a cold glass of unsweetened almond milk.
  •  Make about 4 dozen cookies.
*Ener-G Egg Replacer is the number one way to take all your favorite baked goods and veganize them.  Earth Balance is a great vegan substitute for butter or margarine.

About Living Well

I am a vegan who loves food and loves life. Why am I vegan? Vegan living seemed to be a holistic way to live. Choosing to live as a vegan is helping me to live more environmentally conscious, more ethically, and more healthy. That said, I still wanted to be able to have foods that I loved. This site will be a place that I share ideas on living well and share vegan recipes. Some recipes are naturally vegan; other recipes I will take and veganize them. My influences in cooking are from my Granny (who is now 96 years old) who taught me how to make homemade buttermilk biscuits, syrup cookies, okra, and other southern comfort favorites; my mom, who knows how to host, and from living in places like London, Spain, and Costa Rica. When I am not cooking I am a professional artist. Cooking is just one more way I get to be creative. May these recipes inspire you, and may they always be delicious! P.S.
