I have to make at least a double batch if I want them to last more than one day.

These will never be the crunchy, flaky snap cookies; but, for pure flavor, these are spectacular. The bite of the ginger. The zing of the cinnamon. The fullness of the pumpkin. They are a family favorite.

How to Make Ginger-Cinnamon Cookies (Vegan)

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Sift the flour, ginger, baking soda, arrowroot, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt into a mixing bowl. Stir the mixture to blend evenly, and sift a second time into another bowl.
  3. Place the Earth Balance into a mixing bowl and beat until creamy.
  4. Gradually beat in the white sugar. Beat in the pumpkin and molasses.
  5. Sift 1/3 of the flour mixture into the Earth Balance mixture; stir to thoroughly blend. Sift in the remaining flour mixture, and mix together until a soft dough forms.
  6. Pinch off small amounts of dough and roll into 1 inch diameter balls between your hands.
  7. Roll each ball in cinnamon sugar, and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  8. Bake in preheated oven until the tops are rounded and slightly cracked, about 10 minutes.
  9. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
  10. Store in an air tight container out of reach and sight of dogs, children and spouses…if you want any for yourself, that is.
