It's Not a Cookie
It's Got a Middle
It's For a Vegan
So It's Called a Voopee

Tropical Voopee Pies Pre Oven and Pre Frig


Hey these are the perfect cookie to have when you are craving an island get away!!

2 Sticks Earth Balance softened
1 Cup Organic Brown Sugar
1 C Vegan Organic Sugar
¼ C water mixed with 1 T Ener-G Egg Replacer (or if you can't stand this stuff, 1 flax slurry)
1 tsp non-alcoholic vanilla or 1 tsp coconut flavoring
2 1/4 C unbleached flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
2 C rolled oats
1.5 C grated carrots
1 C dried pineapple (with sugar) chopped ( about 5 dried pineapple rings chopped finely)
1/2 C macadamia nuts (chopped finely too). You can use more but those babies are pricey
1/2 C dried chopped papaya optional ( I opted out... I couldn't find any anywhere)

 Preheat Oven to 350. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Cream together Earth Balance and both sugars on medium speed until fluffy. Add egg replacer (or flax slurry) and vanilla and mix until combined. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and spices in separate bowl. Add gradually to Earth balance mix and mix until combined. Mix in oats, carrots and pineapple and macadamias (papaya if using) until just blended. Use medium size ice cream scoop to scoop into balls and place 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Refrigerate for an hour before baking. Bake  around 20-25 minutes until lightly browned. Cool completely before filling.

Vegan coconut cream cheez frosting

1 stick Earth Balance (softened)
4 oz. Tofutti (softened)
3 C vegan powdered sugar
1 tsp non-alcoholic vanilla
2-3 T rice milk or coconut milk
1/2 C unsweetened shredded coconut

Cream Earth Balance with Tofutti. Beat in confectioner’s sugar a cup at a time. Remember to scrape down the sides in between. Add vanilla and then add rice or coconut milk..

When the cookies are completely cool, spread about 1 T of vegan cream cheese frosting on the bottom of one cookie and then sandwich it together with another.
