So, to prepare my Christmas treats for you – I borrowed by mom’s cookie forms, made them, made the healthy frosting, and then I had no idea how to apply the frosting over the cookies. If you however have the right tools – the frosting will be amazingly easy to apply, because it’s thick and creamy, delicious, and sweet.

I think the author has changed the recipe substituting honey for agave to make it vegan....

The directions don't make sense. There is no honey on the ingredients list?

There's honey in this recipe. Very surprised not to see a cruelty-free liquid sweetner like maple syrup or agave.

This recipe contains honey and is therefore not vegan. Replace with maple syrup or agave. Odd that OGP would not make the correction before publishing.

Not vegan, unless you sub the honey... Other than that, looks yummy. :)

Thanks. I understand I could sub with Vegan products. The point is it is labeled as Vegan and is not a Vegan recipe. Might as well include eggs and dairy. If I were to share this recipe with non-vegan friends they would not understand to sub honey with a non-vegan product and it spreads a message that honey is vegan, which it is not. Bees are used, and many are killed in the honey for market process.
