You probably already know that Kristy at Keepin’ It Kind hosts a wonderful annual Christmas cookie swap where vegan cooks from around the blogosphere share their favorite recipes. We are deep into 25 days of amazing yumminess, so please take some time to browse through the sweet offerings. This is my second year to participate (last year I “brought” Molasses Crinkles) and today I’m sharing a recipe for traditional Sicilian Fig Cookies. The recipe comes with a funny story from my dad’s childhood.
In other recipe news…Though An Unrefined Vegan has been quiet, I’ve been busy over at my Tumblr site with holiday season-inspired recipes like: Grapefruit & Anise Chocolate Chip Cookies, Raw Gingerbread Tartlets, Cherry-Orange Braid Bread (which would make an ideal Christmas morning breakfast or a thoughtful hostess gift), and Chocolate Gingerbread Granola (recipe available December 20). All of these treats have the warm and spicy flavors I associate with the winter holidays and you will only find the recipes on Tumblr. I shared the Raw Gingerbread Tartlets at Virtual Vegan Potluck #23. I shared the Cherry-Orange Braided Bread at Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck #24.
