Absolute grand prize: Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies. Not only do they look elegant, they are soft, juicy, red, chocolatey, gorgeous, wow and oh. But seriously – I do this really regularly. For the guests, just for me, for the next nervous breakdown, you say. These babies are always there.
And the best thing is that the preparation takes a maximum of 15 minutes (I need 10 minutes more). Then another 12 minutes in the oven and tadaa, real quick recipe. Of course, you can find more delicious dishes in our biscuit recipes. With a little research, you have a whole repertoire of vegan emergency recipes like Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies.
Speaking of which, red is the color of passion (I think) and I have a huge crush on red pastries. Especially for that red dough (you may have noticed). Schoki is not usually my thing, but I like it this way.

Soft, clean and vegan: Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
For a different crumpled look, you can sprinkle the cookies instead of powdered sugar.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and lower heat. Mix flour, baking powder, baking cocoa and salt in a bowl.
Using an electric hand mixer, beat together the sugar, applesauce, softened margarine, vanilla, and food coloring until smooth. Gradually add the cocoa mixture and mix.
Fill a deep plate with some sugar and another with powdered sugar. Make 10 balls from the dough and roll half first in sugar and then in powdered sugar. Then bake on a baking sheet lined with baking paper for 10-12 minutes.
Repeat the process with the second half and leave the cookies to cool on a wire rack.
