These cookies are very soft and have a unique flavor so if you're into more traditional cookies, maybe skip this recipe. But if you love trying new flavors then go for it! I thought these were delicious, and so did most of my family. Also these cookies are Vegan, Egg-free, Low-fat, and Dairy-free.
1 box of sugar cookie mix
3/4 cup of butternut squash (You can't taste it, it's just there to replace butter.)
1/4 cup of Almond nog (or soy nog, whichever you like)
Pecans (just throw some in until it looks right)
1 tbsp flax seeds (ground up)
3 tbsp water
Mix together the flaxseed, and water in your bowl. Let it sit for 3 minutes. You can use this time to mash/blend your squash with the eggnog (I did this in a 1 cup measuring cup and then put it in the bowl with the flaxseed and used my emersion blender on it). Now mix the flax seed with the squash mixture.
Add the cookie dough mix to the wet ingredients.
Fold in some pecans.
Drop some dough 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 350 until lightly browned.
You can use pumpkin or sweet potato instead of butternut squash but add extra flour to thicken.
You can use a gluten free cookie mix if you want.
If you're not vegan you can use regular eggnog and a regular egg instead of the flaxseed.
Recipe 1: Chicken and Bacon Kebabs
Cut your chicken or pork into bit size cubes and wrap each one in half a bacon strip and put through a kebab with 4 cubes on each kebab, you can also put sweet peppers in between meat. Now put in a plastic bag with your favorite vinaigrette or Italian dressing and marinate overnight or atleast 1 hour. Then grill or bake until done and serve with ranch.
Recipe 2: Buffalo Chicken Wings
Take your favorite buffalo sauce and mix it with ranch dressing
1 cup of buffalo to 3/4 cup of ranch or half and half depending on how much you like ranch. This makes your wings more creamy. Then you can add your wings and marinate atleast 3 hours and then grill them up!
Recipe 3: 3 ingredient Nutella cookies (double as needed)
2 cups of nuttella
2 cups of flour
2 large eggs
Mix and put on greased cookie sheet and bake for 8-15 minutes at 350 degrees
Recipe 4: Jell-o Cups.
It's simple, get snack cups, make your favorite jell-o mix pour in cups, chill the allotted amount of time, then pipe whipped cream on in the pattern using the smallest piping tip you have.
Recipe 5: 7 Layer Dip
On the bottom put re-fried beans, then put sour cream, then guacamole, then salsa, then cheese, then chiles, then olive slices if desired.
6 organic red delicious apples
3/4 cup of sugar
4 tbsp Pumpkin pie spice
A pie crust and top crust (I used homemade)
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Cane Sugar
1 Cup white sugar beated with 1 tbsp molasses
1 stick butter or 1/2 cup butter substitute (I use butter)
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
(optional) 1/2 cup rolled oats (oatmeal not cooked)
1/2 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
(optional) Macadamia nuts
Take your unsoftened butter and soften it by putting it in the microwave for 10 seconds then flipping it over and doing it another 5-10 seconds
Mix butter with sugars
Add the egg and peanut butter
In another bowl mix together flour, baking powder, and salt
Add mixtures together until flour is moist
Stir in chocolate chips and oats and nuts if desired
Mixture will be a little crumby but just stick it together into balls
Bake your dough balls in the oven at 350 degrees (Fahrenheit) for 15 minutes
Let cool before removing from pan
Makes 3-4 batches depending on how big you make the dough balls.
