Vegan Blackberry Cookies

Vegan Blackberry Cookies

These Vegan Blackberry Cookies are extra soft, thanks to the coconut milk. The marriage of the blackberries and orange flavors in this recipe is to die for. For this recipe I used fresh blackberries and would not recommend using frozen one as they might soak the cookies.

Rustic Strawberry Tart

Vegan Rustic Strawberry Tart

As with all desserts that spotlight fresh fruit, the season’s best berries make this tart shine. This dessert was inspired by a large basket of spring strawberries from Fall Creek Farm in Granbury, Texas, where Cullen and Ashley Crisp’s mantras are “the smaller, the sweeter” and “the redder, the better.” If you’re purchasing the grocery-store variety, pony up for organic—it’s worth it.

The twist here is that it’s made on the stovetop rather than baked in the oven. This recipe originally appeared in Vegan Express. Photo by Susan Voisin. Continue Reading…
