I forgot to include this photo .... my sister is coming to visit from North Dakota Wednesday. Their family will be with us for Robert's upcoming Eagle Scout ceremony. I've got to provide all the refreshments after the ceremony - and, of course, I'm going to have my "garbage cookies" as well as other goodies.
In order to provide T with "vegan" treats, I'm going to attempt "Vegan Garbage Cookies". Here are the items I picked up to make sure I'll be able to cook for her this coming week. Hope this turns out well!
Karen’s Garbage Cookies VEGAN for T
1 cup Shortening (Substitute Smart Balance)
¾ cup Dark Brown Sugar
¾ cup White Sugar
2 Eggs (Substitute 2 TBLS Flax seed meal & water)
2 Tbs Vanilla
1 ¾ cup Self Rising Flour
2 Tbs Wheat Germ
2 cups Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1 pkg Chocolate Chips (Substitute Vegan Chips)
½ cup Raisins
½ cup Chopped Nuts
½ cup Shredded Coconut
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix shortening and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Add flour, wheat germ and oatmeal.
mixture will be very thick. Add remaining ingredients & mix.
Bake for about 15 minutes until edges are barely brown. The center
will be slightly soft. Remove from the oven and allow to stand on
the cookie sheet for a minute or two. Cool completely on wax paper.
