Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!


Yield: about 4 dozen cookies


8 ounces (225g) firm tofu

1/2 cup (120 ml) walnuts

2 cups (480 ml) organic sugar

1/2 cup (120 ml) unsweetened applesauce

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 cups (960 ml) whole wheat pastry flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger


- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (Gas Mark 4) and lightly oil 2 baking sheets.

- Combine the tofu and walnuts in the food processor and process until almost smooth and creamy.

Transfer to a medium bowl.

- Add the organic sugar, applesauce, and vanilla, and mix well.

- In a large bowl combine the salt, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, baking powder, and flour, and mix well to form a very thick mixture.

- Drop the batter by teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheets about 2-inches (5 cm) apart. Plan to bake the cookies in two batches.

- Bake about 13 to 15 minutes, or until the bottoms are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes, then use a metal spatula to transfer the cookies to a platter. Store the Cinnamon Softies in an airtight container or heavy-duty plastic bag.
