it’s my favorite time of the year, the holiday season aka dessert season. this time of year, is when i savor time in the kitchen, turn on holiday music and create some epic vegan goodness. seasonal flavors are what I enjoy most and gingerbread is no exception! this holiday season, i’m thrilled and so grateful to partner with Country Crock® Plant Butter on Vegan Gingerbread Oatmeal Cream Pies using their Plant Butter! as you can probably tell, vegan butter makes an appearance in tons of my recipes and it takes vegan desserts from ordinary to extraordinary.
for this particular recipe, i used Country Crock® Plant Butter with Olive Oil and melted an entire stick of butter for the cookie portion of the recipe. Let’s talk a little bit about the butter! you can substitute Country Crock® Plant Butter 1:1 for dairy butter in your favorite recipes. it cooks, bakes, and tastes the exact same as dairy butter, so if you’re looking to go vegan or eliminate dairy, it’s a great option. County Crock® Plant Butter is also gluten-free and kosher!
the texture is simply incredible, i can’t get over it. you can give these cookies to a non-vegan and i promise they won’t guess it’s a vegan cookie due to the decadence and chewy texture. ah, and the news just keeps getting better because Country Crock® Plant Butter and i will be hosting a giveaway soon! in the meantime, check out my video where i go over the product and show you a glimpse of the baking process.
the making of the cookie is an incredibly easy process, i promise! you simply mix all of the dry ingredients together, melt the butter and add the other wet ingredients to the dry ones. mix everything well, form the dough into a cookie shape and bake them in the oven for 15 minutes. the cookies have to cool down for 10 minutes and then you can add your favorite vegan whipped cream, coconut cream, yogurt or frosting to the center for a cookie pie. how good does this all sound?!
