Yield: 22 Servings
|3 ounces||Walnuts (or about ? cup)1 ? cups powdered sugar|
|2 cups||Flour - (I use spelt flour; whole grain)|
|¼ cup||Soy flour; defatted|
|1 teaspoon||Baking powder|
|¼ cup||Craisins (dried; sweetened cranberries)|
|¼||Orange (all white pith removed), chopped fine , rind of|
|½ cup||Egg replacement; flax seed liquid*|
These have become our latest favorite in our household. Although the recipe calls for walnuts, skip them and use candied ginger instead, or dried currants or raisins.
Mix ingredients together in mixer. (Don't over mix.) Turn the gooey dough onto a baking pan (spray with pan release like a pan release agent first). Using a spatula, shape into two logs, about 2½ to 3 inches wide and 10-12 inches long.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (until dough loses its shine & is browned a bit.) Remove logs to a cooling rack. Cool for 10 minutes. Slice logs on a sharp diagonal, cutting about 10-12 slices per log.
Place slices back on cookie sheet, laying cut side down. Bake 10 min. each at 300 degrees (turning once during second baking).
Remove to rack and completely cool.
* 1 tablespoon flax seed + 3 tablespoons water (boiled, then seed removed) = 1 egg replacement. You can also use 2 egg whites for each egg called for in a recipe. This recipe originally called for 2 eggs (whole), plus 2 egg whites, so the flax liquid required totals 8 tablespoons or ? cup (3 T. per egg, plus 1 T. per white.)
