Orange CookiesI dont’ know how Grandma Myers would feel about this, but I have adapted her Orange cookie recipe to make it Vegan and Gluten Free.  Orange cookies were always one of our favorite things about a trip to Grandma’s house.  She always made so many we got to eat them there and she sent some home with us.  I have also cut her recipe in half because the original made 4 dozen.  Wow!!!

Grandma’s Orange Cookies

(Makes about 2 dozen)

For Cookies:
3/4 Cup Agave Syrup
1/2 Cup Earth Balance Vegan Butter
1/4 Cup Soymilk
1/2 Orange (Rind and Juice)
1/4 Cup Applesauce
2 Cups Gluten Free Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder


For Icing
1/2 Box Confectioners Sugar (1/2 lb)
1/2 tsp butter
1/2 Orange (Rind and Juice)


*Preheat oven to 350 degrees
*In a large bowl, mix butter and agave.
*Add applesauce
*In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients.  Then add to rest alternating with soymilk.
*Next add rind and juice. (If batter is too runny add more flour 1 Tbsp at a time.  Should be the consistency of pancake batter)
*Spoon onto cookie sheet, about 1 Tbsp in size.  Space out well as these will spread.
