My husband and girls love cinnamon so we decided to try something new. They loved these little balls of cinnamon dough covered in cinnamon sugar. The insides stayed a little doughy and soft while the outside was a little crunchy.
Cinnamon Sugar Balls
1 cup dairy free margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar mixed with 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon for rolling
Use an electric mixer to cream the margarine and sugar. Add the applesauce, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla and beat again. Add the flour then mix until thoroughly combined. Roll the dough into 1" balls then place them 1" apart on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake at 300 for 25-30 minutes or until the bottoms are browned and the cookies are set. Immediately roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
