Chewy Holiday Cookies


1/2 cup soy milk

1 1/2 tablespoons ground flax seed

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon nutmeg

1 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract



Preheat oven to 350 F.

1. Microwave the soy milk until warm then mix with flax seed. Set aside.

2. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients except the sugar. (flour, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg)

3. In another bowl, mix the vanilla extract, vegetable oil, and sugar and whisk. Add the mixture of the dry ingredients gradually to form a dough. You’ll have to use your hands to mix it properly.

4. Take roughly a tablespoon of dough, roll it into a ball, and flatten it into a disc about 1 1/2 inch in diameter.

5. Add sprinkles.

6. Place on a cookie sheet, and keep in mind that they’ll almost double in size, so space them out. Bake for ten minutes.

Let cool, then serve.
