Ginger cookies for a holiday dessert on Meatless Monday

Categories: Meatless Monday

If you're looking for something to bring to the office for the holidays -- and you work with people who don't eat animal products -- these vegan ginger cookies are a quick, easy solution. Softer than gingersnaps but with a similar bite imparted by the distinctive root, they're a great balance between sweet and savory. And as an added bonus, no one would ever guess they were vegan. The recipe was adapted for altitude from Vegan with a Vengeance.
