Peppermint Candy Cane Cookies - Christmas Homemade Pt 2


What happened to all those cutouts from our stained glass window cookies? Why, we dipped them in festive coloured icing and crumbled some candy canes on top and sent them along to McGonnagles' Judo Christmas Party.
We used the sugar cookie recipe from 'The Garden of Vegan' and a simple recipe of icing sugar, soya milk, maple syrup and red food colouring for the decoration. They were a nice addition to all the crisps, sweets and chocolate crispie cakes that a legion of overexcited kids got stuck into at the end of their lesson!

  7. I always assume candy canes arn't vegan due to the red stripes (because of this countries obsession with using cohineal so that they can claim ' all natural colourings') but I guess I should stop assuming and start checking!
    Another wonderful offering from you and your super kids!
    Thanks!

  8. Jeni - thanks!!
    Becks - all the colours in these candy canes were extremely synthetic and not tested on animals - unless you count my two....
