Spice in the Kitchen: Vegan Milanos!

Tip: Roll the logs of dough directly on the baking sheet.
Tip: Flatten with spatula.
The flattened cookie log! Peel it off and place on baking sheet.
Baked Milanos. They are very much like a hard sugar cookie
I used ganache instead of plain melted chocolate to fill the cookies.

I have been wanting to try this recipe for vegan Milanos from Post Punk Kitchen for so long now and today seemed like a good day to finally do it!

The dough was fairly easy to make and work with and when forming the cookies, I didn't need to flour my hands like the recipe suggests. What I learned after the first batch was to roll the balls of dough into logs on the cookie sheet (as opposed to your palms) and then flatten them with an oiled spatula (way easier than doing it with your hands). If you are not trying to make them look like Milanos, go easy on yourself and just make round circles. I made a ganache with a bit of orange zest for the filling instead of just the melted chocolate the PPK recipe calls for. One of my friends said they were better than Pepperidge Farm's Milanos. :) Thanks for the recipe, Isa!
