From Fantastic Vegan Cookies by Tiina Strandberg, these treats use a mixture of cashews, lemon juice, and maple syrup to create a filling that is paying homage to a basic cheesecake. Then, they’re topped with one other standard taste: raspberries. “This recipe was impressed by the primary cheesecake I ate in New York over 10 years in the past,” writes Strandberg, “Earlier than that I had by no means paired cheesecake with raspberries, though I knew it was a basic mixture.”
Naturally sweetening each the cookie and the filling with only a little bit of maple syrup helps maintain them more healthy than different vacation cookie choices, and signifies that the ultimate product is not overly sugary in style. (If you would like them to be a bit sweeter, Strandberg recommends dusting them with powdered sugar.)
“You can too get pleasure from these cookies with contemporary strawberries or raspberry jam or strawberry jam should you don’t have raspberries,” she provides. Our suggestion: Make the easy cookie and filling, after which high them with a couple of totally different choices—that manner there’s one thing for everybody’s tastes.
