For me, Christmas should always involve two things: picturesque snow views outside my window and delicious moan-worthy vegan cookies. I usually get the cookies, but the snow…well, snow in December is one of those rare things that *close to never* happens in the south.

So I was more than surprised this past weekend, when dreams became a reality yo!

Our little snowstorm, which is now being referred to as “The Fast and the Flurry-ist 2017”, crept up with a quickness and dropped itself down without apology. Experiencing a massive hit of snow on a late Friday afternoon was enough to make me feel merry and bright, but waking up on Saturday morning to a stunning winter wonderland in my backyard???

I was over. the. moon. 😀 Or as Stimpy would say, “JOOOOOOOYYYY!”

And yes, I’m still allowed to have the same response as a 5 year old when I see snow. So there.

I’m also allowed to act like a 5 year old when I get snow AND cookies simultaneously.

And yes, I’m referring to these deliciously simple Gluten-Free Vegan Sandwich Cookies, which have been “hit by a truck load of mixed nuts” and squished with melted gooey marshmallows.

Because what holiday would be complete without mixed nuts, the food AND the film!? #snowdayandamovie

If you’re a fan of “Mixed Nuts” the movie, then you’re in good company. It sure doesn’t feel like Christmas until I see Liev Schreiber dance with Steve Martin, Madeline Khan rap in an elevator, and Adam Sandler play the ukulele.

True, there are so many things for me to wonder Adam, but I got 99 problems and these cookies ain’t one.

So if you want to get into the holiday spirit and kick back with a few laughs, I highly recommend watching this movie while you enjoy a few stacks of these sandwich cookies! They only take about 15 minutes of active prep + 10 minutes bake time. Plus? There’s no shame when your treats are gluten-free + dairy-free + egg-free + peanut-free + cruelty-free!

I can only dream that the snow will come back in time for Christmas, but luckily, “in every pothole there is hope”, and I can still live it up with my cookie fix.

So from me to you, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Raising my glass to you and yours, with many thanks and hopes for 2018. Woot woot! ♥

Holiday GF Vegan Mixed Nuts + Marshmallow Sandwich Cookies

Makes approximately 25 mini sandwich cookies

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Cream together coconut oil, sugar, and applesauce in a stand mixer on low speed (or if by hand, using a medium mixing bowl and electric beaters).
  3. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and pink salt; beat until combined well. Mixture should be wet and sticky- if it’s crumbly or dry, add 1 Tbsp of applesauce.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips and mixed nuts, beat for 30 seconds.
  5. Spoon onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. 1 Tbsp per cookie will give you approximately 50 mini cookies, totaling 25 sandwich cookies to finish.
  6. Bake 7 min and remove from oven. Top half of your cookies with 3 mini marshmallows each, and sandwich together with remaining cookies. I used a spatula to gently press down on each one, to help hold in place.
  7. Return trays to oven and bake an additional 3 minutes more. Enjoy!
