scary eyeball cookies.

eyeballI found this recipe on pinterest forever ago, and i knew one of these days I was going to get around to making it. I made it this year for halloween, and Im happy to report, these were a hit! Not only do they look great – they taste really great too! They taste like cake batter, they were very soft and kind of cakelike and super fun to make and to eat. The kids loved to eat the candy eyeball in the center!

I found the original recipe here.

I had to do some searching to find a vegan yellow or white cake mix, but I was able to find one. Just check the ingredeints – its out there!

  • 1 Yellow Cake Mix Box
  • ½ cup earth balance, softened
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 8 oz. containter vegan cream cheese softened
  • 1 vegan egg replacer

  • powdered sugar
  • candy eyeballs
Instructions
  1. Beat earth balance vanilla, egg replacer and vegan cream cheese until fluffy.

We had alot of halloween festivities this weekend, so we made some halloween cookies to make the weekend even more fun. We used the roll out sugar cookie recipe from Vegan cookies invade your cookie jar, then iced them with this icing recipe I found on pinterest. The icing really did stay hard, which made it easy to transport these cookies. I had to add a little extra soymilk though, b/c it was pretty dry once I added the suggested amount. I also have to work on my icing skills. There’s a reason why you only see the ghost cookies…it was by far the prettiest one.

for the glaze, mix together:

  • 1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon milk (i probably ended up using 3-4 tspn soy milk)
  • Food coloring (optional)
