The Secret Ingredient Is Evil

These look good, right? Warm, delicious brownies? Well, not so much. They tasted okay, but they stuck so badly that I just threw the whole batch away because I didn't feel like trying to pry them off of the wax paper. I managed to scrape some of the insides out - we ate the chocolatey guts with Soy Delicious Turtle Tracks. Yum. I won't be making this recipe again, though.

Today I made snickerdoodles in honor of Veronica Mars getting picked up for a 3rd season by The CW. This is appropriate because V makes Wallace snickerdoodles in the season one episode "Betty and Veronica." Of course I didn't listen to stolen police interrogation tapes while I made mine, but she used eggs so I think the cool points even out in the end. Ahem. Anyway, I used Kreeli of VeganMania's recipe, which I'll repost here since her site is down at the moment.

P.S. I gave some of these to a friend who had never even heard of a snickerdoodle until I said I was going to make some. WTF? How do you get through 23 years of life without ever having a snickerdoodle? Or even hearing the name? Error. Error. Does not compute.

Perfect Vegan Snickerdoodles
Recipe by Kreeli

1 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 tbsp soy milk whipped with 2 tbsp cornstarch
3 cups unbleached white flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp tapioca starch or cornstarch

2 tbsp cinnamon
4 tbsp granulated white sugar
1 tbsp cocoa powder (optional)

Preheat your oven to 300 F.

In a large bowl, cream the margarine and sugar together until smooth. Add the vanilla, and the cornstarch/soymilk mixture, and beat until well-mixed.

In a smaller bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and tapioca/corn starch. Stir this into the wet ingredients and combine well.

In a very small bowl stir together the granulated sugar, cinnamon and cocoa powder (if desired).

Begin rolling the cookie dough into balls of about 3 tbsp each. Roll each ball in the cinnamon/sugar/cocoa powder mixture until completely coated and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Continue until all the dough is used up. Using the bottom of a glass, press down on each ball until they are about an inch thick. Bake for 12 - 14 minutes, and no more. The cookies should still seem very soft when you remove them from the oven. Let cool on the pans for about 10 minutes, and then transfer to a wire baking rack and let cool completely.

Makes about 30 cookies. This recipe can be halved, if desired.

Notes: I like mine on the crispier side, so I baked them for 14 minutes. These are seriously addictive, so be warned.

Sorry the brownies didn’t work out, I hate failed cooking and baking projects. You must stop posting incredibly delicious baked goods, this is no good for my waistline ;) Just kidding! You know I’m going to make these, I will just be sure to give most of them away (that’s right I’m on a mission to fatten up my friends). BTW, I healthied-up (is that a word?) the chocolate cake recipe because I had leftover PB frosting that had to go somewhere. I made a half batch of the batter and made cupcakes, using all 100% whole wheat pastry flour (Arrowhead Mills brand – good stuff!), sweetened with Perfect Sweet Xylitol and 1 Tbsp maple syrup (no refined sugar!), banana as the egg equivalent, and replaced half the oil with apple sauce. Still very tasty and so much better for you. Almost makes you feel justified in smearing that PB icing all over it :P I made a few with just crushed walnut pieces sprinkled on top, I highly recommend it.

Are Snickerdoodles an American thing? I've never heard of them before.

Oooh, shan, nice ideas there and sounds really great.

I'm sorry your brownies didn't work out as planned, vegancore! They look SO freakin' G*O*O*D...

I remember Snickerdoodle-making from Home Ec in 6th grade. Never mind when THAT was. HAHAHAHA. And i remember eating most of the snickerdoodles at school before they made it home to mom 'n' dad...

Your snacks look AWESOME!

HAHAHA. As I read this I was thinking to myself "What the F is a snickerdoodle???" Is it an American thing? Never heard of it! Looks tasty though.

1. eeeeee!!! veronica mars!!

2. holy yummy snickerdoodles. i am totally making these. i love you.

3. please tell me the failed brownie recipe is NOT dreena's from vive le vegan, because i kind of had my heart set on tracking that one down.

When all else fails, I check on wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snickerdoodle

So yes, they seem to be an American thing (or maybe German...who knows). That is, if you believe wikipedia....it's not exactly the most trusted source out there.

I'm sorry your brownies didn't work out. They look really yummy. I've just recently started eating chocolate again (for the first time in many, many years), so I'm having fun with all of the new vegan food I can now eat!

shananigans - Actually I need to stop baking because it's bad for my waistline. At least you only have to look at the deliciousness! I'm intrigued by this "healthified" cake. I see Xylitol at the health food store all the time, but I've never had it. WW pastry flour, however, I love. Good stuff indeed.

grace - Snickerdoodles must be an American thing, although I've never really thought about it. They're basically just sugar cookies rolled in cinnamon and sugar.

kleopatra - Thanks! I think we made snickerdoodles in Home Ec as well.

kat - Make them! Make them and see what you've been missing!

girl least likely to - 1. EEEEEE! Are you a VM fan? Because if so then I love you. 2. Make them! But save the declaration of love until after you eat 6 for dinner. 3. The failed brownie recipe is not, in fact, the one from Vive. Those are next on my list.

laura faye - Chocolate = love. :) Revel in the wealth of deliciousness that lies before you.

No offence, but this post doesn't follow on well from Workout Wednesday. You have been going so well, don't slip back into olf habits!
I'm thinking snickerdoodles are American cos I've never heard of them either. I haven't heard of sugar cookies either, although I think the name explains itself :-)

Wow, these really DO look -perfect-!

I'm definitely saving this recipe for a rainy day... Thanks for sharing!

Confession - I'm Canadian, 30, and I've never ever heard of a snickerdoodle! They look great - I'm going to try them. Also, you took a really nice photo of them!

freedom - First off, any statement that starts off with "no offense" is pretty much guaranteed to be offensive whether you intend them to be or not. I can count the number of times that I've baked in the last three months on one hand. I'm not on a diet - I'm trying to make a change that I can stick with over the long run. My goal is not a life void of baked goods. I'm sure the timing of my post could be better, but this is at its core a food blog, and this is what I had to blog about. I'm working hard toward my goal, but I don't intend to completely give up sweets to get there.

bittersweet - You're welcome! They are definitely the most perfect vegan snickerdoodles I've experienced.

megan - Thanks! Yeah, the consensus seems to be that snickerdoodles are an American thing. So that excuses you and the other posters who've never heard of them, but the friend I made them for is definitely American so I guess she's just been living under a sad, doodle-less rock since 1982.

oh yes, i looooove veronica mars. i guess that means we can be internet girlfriends now. <3

for the record, my family always made cookies that were basically snickerdoodles at christmastime, but we always called them "saint hearts" for some reason. i had no idea what a snickerdoodle was until i was into my 20s, even though i'd been eating them my whole life. the main point, though, is YUM.

and yay for trying dreena's fudgy brownies next! i look forward to your report.

Yeah, I totally love you for loving VM. The only people I know in real life who like it are the people who I forced to sit down and watch it. My experience is that once you see it you're hooked, but it's a hard sell initially. Which is weird because I loved it from minute one. I've never heard a snickerdoodle called anything but a snickerdoodle. Maybe it's where I'm from - Wikipedia says they might be a PA Dutch thing, and I've lived in that area my whole life.

I think it might be a while until I make another batch of brownies. Or anything, really. I've had my fill of baked goods for a while.

I am trying to convince myself that commenting on your blog is not procrastinating.

Are you reading my mind? Seriously, I made progress today on the work I had to do and rewarded myself by baking yummy vegan brownies (which I can't post until either I've done more work or monday night- which ever comes first.) And then, when I finally allow myself 20 minutes of free internet time what do I see on your blog? BROWNIES! This is either a freaky central pa psychic connection or a serious stalker problem.

I would like to say I do not live under a doodle-less rock. I love snickerdoodles and up until now thought they were standard american fare for all sixth grade home ec classes. Guess I was wrong.

I see your snickerdoodles and raise you a monkey bread. Have you ever had monkey bread?

Ok, I have heard of snickerdoodles. I've eaten snickerdoodles, but have never made snickerdoodles. I'm not American, but live close (Canada) and I've been alive for eons, so I've picked up lots along the way. I am actually surprised at how many people have posted here saying they haven't heard of them. But, I am a cookie fiend, so that may explain my snickerdoodle knowledge.
I'm sorry your brownies didn't turn out. They do look freakin' good! That sucks. Dreena's recipe should turn out wonderfully.

jessie - Does standing outside of your house with binoculars count as "stalking?" Because I don't really think so. I could be bird-watching. I've heard of monkey bread, but never had it. I've heard two definitions, though. One is bread dough baked with margarine, cinnamon, and sugar, and the other is a kind of banana bread cake with chocolate chips. I always thought that the former was monkey bread until I ran across the latter online. Oh, and commenting here isn't procrastinating. It's important research for your Great American Novel about vegans and how awesome they are and how much brownies rule the world.

carrie - Thank you! Being a cookie fiend does have certain advantages. :)

Hey vegancore, I"m sorry. I realised as soon as I posted that comment that it was maybe a bit harsh. And I know exaclty what you mean about the 'no offense' thing - so true. I have issues with my bosy and that caused me to say something I regret. Again, sorry.

Wow! I almost bought that turtle ice cream! (it was on sale at rhubarb's) :)
your brownies look fab :)
I think I might make the snickerdoodles with chickpea flour, I can't remember ever making them!

freedom - It's no big deal, seriously. I'm sorry if I sounded like a bitch in the return comment. No hard feelings?

jessica - It was! That's why I bought it. :) It's soooo good. I'd be really interested to hear how the snickerdoodles come out made with chickpea flour.

Hey vegancore, no hard feelings at all. Keep up the yummy recipes and exercise and I'll try not to let my issues get in my head all the time!!

*GROUP HUG* (as long as there are some vegan brownies to celebrate internet friendships!!)

Those brownies STILL LOOK AWESOME!!!

These are hands-down the best snickerdoodles I've ever made, vegan or otherwise. Can't wait to share with the (omni) cinnamon-loving boyfriend. :-)

thanks for the snickerdoodle recipe-- I'm DEFINITELY trying these. I recently made mini "Coffee Break" -muffins from The Garden of Vegan (I think it's that one, if it's not that one then it's La Dolce Vegan) that I think taste just like snickerdoodles in muffin form. MMMM.
And I bought VLV for the express purpose of making the fudgy brownies and my husband LOVED them. They were supremely easy and most most most most deliciously excellent, especially when spread with peanut butter on top.
Stephanie

julie - Yay! I'm glad you liked them!

anonymous - I hope you like them! Those muffins sound awesome - I have both of those books, so I may need to give it a try. I've heard only good things about the VLV brownies - they're definitely in my future. :)

these. fucking. rule.

I'm bringing them to a potluck tomorrow and I've already eaten like 12 of them. I'm going to explode. happily.

dajonzboy: I'm sorry they didn't work out for you, but the tone of your comment is pretty uncalled for. I'm in Pennsylvania, and as such have no experience baking in the desert, and I can only speak to my own experiences. They baked up fine for me, so like I said, I'm sorry yours didn't work out, but there's no need to be rude.

I made the snickerdoodles last night. Your recipe is the best I've found so far, so thank you for sharing it! The only problem I encountered was that at 14 minutes, the cookies were still doughy after they cooled down. I didn't bake them any longer but I probably will bake them for 16-17 minutes next time.

I could not believe how good these came out. Who says being a vegan is a bad thing!? Don't you love giving the cookies to non-vegans, then spilling the beans after they've already admitted to loving them? By the way, in order to appease the low carb and all natural crowd I sweetened with aXylitol Sweetener that I picked up off the net. For those that haven't used Xylitol as a sweetener, I'm kind of amazed it hasn't picked up yet. Its a pretty darned amazing product.

Do you really have a recipe for monkey bread? I haven't made that deliciously gooey stuff since I made the switch to vegan :)

And I hate sugar cookies, but have always loved (and heard of!) snickerdoodles. How could anyone live a doodle-free life and call themselves a baker... Shocking.

I would say that this recipe needs some modification. As others have said, they don't get "done" when following your directions. Mine came out very doughy even when cooled. I followed the directions exactly and I have an oven thermometer inside my oven. I would revise it to bake them at 325 for 18 minutes. Are you sure your oven is calibrated?

Also I'm not sure how you got 30 cookies! I halved the recipe and got only 9 and they were regular cookie size, about 4" diameter. Did you make miniature cookies? Maybe that's why yours were done after only 14 minutes at such a low temperature.

These were so good! Thanks for the recipe!! I love how they're crispy on the outside and soft in the middle - just like the snickerdoodles from my childhood :)

Thanks for the snickerdoodle recipe! My dd is allergic to eggs, so I stalk the vegan bakers to help me out. Can't wait to make these!!

Maria

white granulated sugar is NOT vegan! In order to make sugar white, they use what's called bone char, which is ground-up animal bone.

If you REALLY want to make a vegan cookie, you would use Turbinado sugar, Beet Sugar, or something similar.

Your recipe is NOT vegan. Sorry to say

So, obviously this post is old, but I just read this recipe and made them. The second tray is cooking now and I'm going to leave it in longer than the last, as the first tray came out too soft. The taste is great, though.

To one of the above posters, white sugar can be vegan. I have some in my pantry that specifically says vegan.
