Preparation

To Make the Cream Cheese Filling:

  1. Mix vegan cream cheese with powdered sugar. Taste to see if it’s sweet enough, add more powdered sugar if you want. Vanilla extract is optional.
  2. Put filling in a piping bag or sandwich bag. Place bag in refrigerator until cookies are completely cooled.

To Make the Cookies:

  1. Cream the vegan butter and sugar together.
  2. Mix in almond milk and vanilla extract.
  3. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl then add to the everything else. Mix well. The mixture will seem dry or super thick but keep going.
  4. Roll large pieces of dough and place on a cookie sheet. I rolled 10 balls and used 2 cookie sheets.
  5. Bake at 350 for about 11 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool then place in refrigerator until completely cool. Pipe vegan cream cheese filling between two cookies.
