Heavenly Raspberry Almond Cookies posted by allyson


I found this on Recipe Zaar, and veganized it.  They disappeared pretty fast and several of you asked me to post the recipe, so here it is.

1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup soy margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
Egg replacer equal to 1 egg
5 tablespoons raspberry jam
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder


Heat your oven to 375*F. Coarsely chop 1 cup almond slices. Or buy them already slivered.

In a large bowl, beat margarine, sugar and brown sugar at medium speed 2 to 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg replacer, raspberry jam, almond extract and vanilla until blended.

In a medium bowl, stir together 2 1/2 cups of flour and baking soda. Beat into wet mixture at low speed until well blended. If the dough is too sticky to handle, add more flour 1 tbls. at a time. Stir in chopped almonds.

Roll rounded tbls. of dough into 1 inch balls; place about 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Press down lightly on cookies to flatten slightly. Top each cookie with almond slices, pushing one edge of each slice into dough.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove cookies from the oven.  Cool on baking sheet 1 minute. Place cookies on wire rack; cool completely.  Enjoy!
