In one scene of the movie, the animals are trying to steal some "girlscout" cookies:
|"And there they are. America's most coveted cookies: Love Handles, Skinny Mints, Neener-Neeners, and Smackeroons. And guess what? They're all yours!"|
makes approximately 10-12 sandwich cookies
Peanut Butter Cookies:
1/2 cup vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
1/2 cup peanut butter, smooth or crunchy (dealer's choice)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 flax egg (3 T. warm water mixed with 1 T. ground flax seeds)
1 1/4 cups flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Cream butter and peanut butter together in a medium bowl. Add the sugars and cream thoroughly. Add the flax egg and mix well. Add rest of ingredients to bowl and mix well. Form into balls about the size of a walnut. Place about 3" apart on cookie sheets lined with parchment or silpat. Flatten with fork to make criss-cross pattern. Bake for approximately 10 minutes at 375 degrees F. Set aside to cool.
3 T. vegan shortening (I used Earth Balance stick variety)
1 T. vegan butter
1/4 cup strawberry puree or strawberry jam (I used homemade Strawberry Lemon Marmalade)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Cream shortening, butter & jam together until light and fluffy. Beat in powdered sugar, then vanilla. If too thick, add a little non-dairy milk (just a smidge at a time!). Fill cookie sandwiches with a heaping tablespoonful of frosting.
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips, melted in microwave. Drizzle over cookies.
