Week 48 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Baking is pulled/poured sugar. I had never heard of this before so I looked into it. It requires equipment I don’t own like a candy thermometer and kitchen gloves. I don’t particularly want to own those things but I didn’t want to skip the week either so I compromised/cheated with drop sugar cookies rolled in sugar. Rolled sugar is going to have to work – sorry!
I veganized the cookies by substituting Earth Balance margarine for the better and using a flax “egg”. A flax egg is 1 tablespoon ground flax seed combined with 3 tablespoons water. Mix it together and let it sit for about ten minutes then add it the recipe just like a regular egg. The cookies came out great. They’re soft and pretty too. I like them a lot better than the rollout sugar cookies I made for the Halloween challenge. I also like that my kitchen wasn’t destroyed in the process.
