Coooooookies!

I’ve been pretty good at this whole blogging thing lately. Watch, I’ve just screwed myself over. Anyway, I’ll start with something healthy. You know it will quickly descend into sugar gluttony so how about a salad?

Red leaf lettuce, cucumber, and chopped up bits of sheese blue cheese. Not quite real blue cheese but it works in salad. I used some of my mom’s homemade French dressing which I found in the fridge. French dressing aka glorified ketchup vinaigrette. 

The scramble is probably the best I’ve ever made. Crumbled extra firm tofu, nooch, and some Fox Point seasoning – which is basically herb riddled crack. 

Now for some dessert. Spritz maybe? Yeah, I’m Norwegian, what of it. I like my spritz, my krumkake, kringla, lefse, and what have you. Even when its not Christmas.

The recipe is basically a vegan rip off of Betty Crocker (how I loved that mythical woman)

Spritz 

This is a small recipe (I only had one stick of EB) so feel free to double it.
1/2 c. EB, room temp
1/4 c. sugar 
1 c. 2 tbsp. flour 
1/8 tsp. salt 
1 tip vanilla (1/4 tsp) 

Cream EB and sugar, add vanilla. Mix in flour and salt. You might need to add a bit of soymilk.  Load into this:

And shoot (hehe) onto a very lightly greased cookie sheet. One click, pull up quickly. The sheet needs to only be lightly greased otherwise the cookies won’t stick and they will never leave their safe cylindrical home. Same thing applies to parchment – if you can get it to work on parchment by all means let me know. Bake for 5-8 minutes – until the cookies are set but not brown. Barely golden as my mom would tell me. Makes 20 cookies.

One type of cookie clearly isn’t enough. So here’s some more.

Chewy Banana Cookies

And some walnut ridges. I named them, I don’t care if I stole the recipe from VegNews. I slightly modified it (I left out the chocolate chips and used white flour instead of oat). And damnit, I want to name a cookie. Besides, they have cute little ridges from me using my fingers to smash them down. 

Maybe sometime when its not way past my bedtime I’ll post a recipe.

  1. I think spritzcookies is something Norwegians and Germans have in common! I’ve been thinking about making homemade lefse! Do you have any tips for that?
    I’d be very interested in a Norwegian cookzine, btw. I am so glad I discovered your blog!

  2. Lefse is probably one of the simpler things to recreate. Potatoes, butter, cream, flour, and sugar. I would sub Earth Balance for the butter. EB is a great substitute, though I don’t know if its available to you. The rest of the recipe is pretty straight forward, soy creamer is the only other sub. I need to drag out our lefse griddle and give it a go. Though I’m afraid I’d eat an entire batch myself.

  3. Your spritz are lovely!!

    Do you have a recipe for vegan krumkake? I haven’t seen one anywhere and I’m afraid to veganize things. I need to try to make lefse too, I’ve been missing it.

  4. I’ve been working on a vegan krumkake but haven’t been satisfied with anything. I will definitely post when I find something passable!
