Some other items from our grocery shopping included the procurement of ingredients for VWAV's Jerk Seitan, which, if you haven't made it, is absolutely FANTASTIC
and BBQ Pomengranate Tofu, which is also very very good
as well as Earth Balance margarine and non-hydrogenated shortening for Christmas baking! Here are my first goodies:
The recipe is modified from a newspaper clipping from the '80s pasted into my mother's strawberry-fabric covered recipe notebook, so I'll reprint without giving proper credit to whomever composed it.
Peanut Butter Candies
1 cup Earth Balance margarine
4 cups icing sugar
1 1/2 cups smooth natural peanut butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 bag vegan chocolate chips
Cream margarine, sugar and peanut butter. Mix in graham crumbs. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 and 9x9 baking pan (or a really big cookie sheet - it makes that much) to a thickness of about 1/4". Melt the chocolate and spread over mixture. Refrigerate until set and let warm to room temperature before cutting into squares.
