ever since a delicious-looking snickerdoodle recipe got posted on vegan yumyum, i've been a little preoccupied with them. i don't have cream of tartar around, though, so i got to googling for other vegan snickerdoodles (because i'm lazy and didn't feel like going to the store). i found another one that i'd bookmarked previously from vegan*core, and then realized that honest to god, i do NOT need more dessert in this house right now. for shiz.
but! all of that cinnamon/sugar cookie googling also reminded me that my mom used to make these cookies around christmas every year that she called "saint hearts." i think they're similar to snickerdoodles, in that they're a cinnamon and sugar kind of cookie, but i'm not sure really. i remember that they involved rolling out, cutting into shapes, and then basting with milk and sprinkling cinnamon and sugar before popping in the oven.
i went on a googling tear and tried all kinds of variations on "saint heart" and "st heart" and "saint heart cookies" and i found absolutely nada, until i went for it and added an s on the end of heart and voila! recipes! has anyone else ever had these before? what are your bets on how easily they'd veganize? i mean it looks as simple as EB shortening and egg replacer (and soymilk of course), but can anyone think of ways that it might get screwed up? i just follow directions, i don't usually mess with 'em.
