This week, I decided to make cookies for all of my yoga classes. I teach Monday-Friday, so that's a lot of cookies! When it came to deciding what kind of cookie to make, there was really only one choice: Gingerbread Yogis! Last year I bought one set of these excellent yoga cookie cutters, and I loved them so much that this year I bought the other set - so now I have TEN different yoga poses!
As you can see, they are incredibly super cute. For the cookies, I used my favorite old standby recipe from "Joy of Cooking," only slightly veganized. So far, they've been a big hit with everyone! Also, it's a really easy recipe to crank out, because I made a bunch of batches of the dough on the weekend, and it keeps in the fridge for at least 8 days. So, every day I just pull out one or two batches of dough, cook up a sheet of ginger yogis (and they only bake for 8 minutes!) - and I'm good to go. Very easy!
I also made a big batch of gluten-free gingerbread people - because I know some of my students are GF. I used Mandee's recipe from this post, and they've been a big hit too! (I also made some of the xgfx ones as regular gingerbread people for my gluten-free cousin).
