It’s December 11th and I haven’t made ANY Christmas cookies. I NEEDED some cookies and I NEEDED it quickly. I also was low on ingredients. No molasses to make my annual Molasses cookie and no sprinkles for my Spritz cookies. Then, I remembered this great recipe for Snowball Cookies that I got from a friend a long time ago. It only has 5 ingredients, and it is SUPER easy! I had just bought a new box of candy canes which was just what I wanted to add to put me in that Christmas spirit. And that’s how my Vegan Peppermint Snowball Cookies were born!
These are the perfect go-to holiday cookie if you need something to make super quickly and easily. But don’t let the easiness fool you, even though this recipe is super simple, it is still extremely delicious. They practically melt in your mouth each time you take a bite! And the peppermint flavor tastes like a sweet candy cane on Christmas morning.
Because this recipe is so simple, the only substitute I really should tell you about is the margarine. I use Earth Balance vegan butter! As for the candy canes, the main ingredient in most candy canes is sugar, so most of them will be allergy-friendly; however, I’d still recommend you read the ingredients just in case!
I hope you love these Vegan Peppermint Snowball Cookies as much as I do! They sure kicked off the holiday baking season right!
