The Best Vegan Christmas Cookie Recipes: Saving The World One Cookie at a Time (The Best Vegan Recipes) [Kindle Edition] April Augustine (Author)
Hello, and welcome to the amazingly delicious and healthy world of April’s vegan diet lifestyle: Christmas Cookie Edition. Are you concerned about your health? Do you know you should be more conscious in your food choices? BUT, you say, IT’S CHRISTMAS!
“What could be wrong with Sparkly Cranberry Pistachio Slice Cookies, Chocolate Peanut Butter Clouds, or Lacy New Orleans Praline Sandwich Cookies with Orange Butter Cream? Well -- Nothing! They not only sound and taste great -- they're also, believe it or not, completely vegan! These are the ones I have made so far, and they are so good.
I am trying this new healthy way of eating little by little and I want to bring my family along with me. That's why I got this book, and it is working!
I like that the recipes have the helpful (chef's tips) and ingredient explanations that makes it easy to use and cook from.
The Gingerbread Cutout Cookies are next on my list. I will be relying on this cookbook for many holidays to come. I recommend it, you will not be disappointed."

What better way to begin your healthy eating, dis-ease fighting, saving the planet commitment… than with CHRISTMAS COOKIES!
Do you like to entertain? These cookies are perfect for an afternoon Christmas Tea. Plan one for all your friends you want to see during the holidays. Introduce your BFF's to partying, vegan cookie style!
Party planner's tip: Use your best Teacups, unmatched or matching, whatever you love. OR, go to thrift stores, rummage sales, etc., and find individual fabulous teacups and saucers in perfect condition. At your Tea, have them all set out on a table or sideboard, and let each person pick their favorite. This becomes their party gift!
Now, you may be thinking…. “WHAT? Vegan Christmas cookies, what does that mean? Are these hay and dirt cookies with some cinnamon and spice thrown in?
Well, no, and I promise you that vegan cookies are still delicious, even though they have no cholesterol, no transfat, no cow hooves, no chicken lips or any other weird ingredients! (These cookies do contain sugar and non-animal fat, so they are not meant to be low calorie.)
I bring all my culinary skill and expertise to these recipes and to all the vegan recipes that I will be sharing with you in my upcoming books.
Owning a catering business in Beverly Hills was great experience and I have since cooked for many people over the years.
The recipes I have to share with you now are just as delicious as those from my catering days, and so much more life-affirming.
Eating to be healthy does not need to be unpalatable. Times have changed, with more and more people adopting this way of eating and wanting fabulous food at the same time. You will never feel deprived or unsatisfied. Yes even you carnivores will be amazed at how delicious a vegan diet can be!
I have gone from Fois Gras (goose liver) to homemade vegan Faux Gras (no geese) with cocktails and it is just as unctuous and satisfying, and I am so much healthier for it, and so is the goose!
My health has improved greatly since becoming vegan, I have lost weight, and I have the energy of a 20 year-younger version of myself! (Yes that would make me 12!) I plan on being healthy, vibrant and active into my 90’s and beyond, and it’s possible for you too!
What better way to dip into the healthy vegan world than with desserts, I ask you? Your family and friends will not know that the yummy cookies they are munching are vegan, unless you tell them. They will only know that they are awesome!
Some of these recipes are from family archives, some are traditional recipes--all veganized, and all are absolutely divine, crowd-pleasing delights!
Jump in and read through the ones that pique your taste buds, and let the baking begin!
So, without further ado- here are my yummy and praise-worthy vegan Christmas cookies!
With profound wishes for your health and happiness,
