Crust
1/2 cup nondairy butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

Filling
1/2 cup silken tofu (soft or firm)
1 cup granulated sugar
Zest from 2 lemons
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (2-3 lemons)
2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Confectioners’ sugar, sifted

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Grease an 8 x 8 baking pan with cooking spray
and sprinkle with a light dusting of flour.

Preparing the crust

In a food processor, in the bowl of an electric stand mixer, or
with an electric hand mixer, cream the butter and confectioners’
sugar until light and fluffy. Add the flour, and process/beat until the dough
just comes together.
Press dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven. Cool on wire rack while preparing the filling.

Filling

In a food processor or blender, add the tofu and blend until creamy, about
1 minute. Add the granulated sugar and blend until smooth. Add and blend the lemon zest, lemon juice, flour, and cornstarch. Pour the filling over the baked shortbread crust and bake for 20 minutes, or until filling is set.
Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.
To serve, cut into squares or bars and dust with sifted confectioners’ sugar, when serving.

Yield: Sixteen 2-inch squares

Note: Best eaten the day they are made. But they can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for a few days.

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup dried cranberries, soaked in hot water to cover, then drained
1 cup walnuts or pecans, toasted (or not)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Lightly grease muffin tins or use paper cupcake liners.
In a medium-size bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and
salt together.
In a large bowl, beat the sugar and oil together, then
add the mashed bananas. Stir in the water and vanilla and
mix thoroughly. Add the flour mixture, along with the
drained cranberries and nuts. Stir to mix.
Fill each muffin tin halfway with the batter. Bake for 20-30 minutes,
until they are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Yields 24 medium muffins

3 teaspoons Ener-G Egg Replacer (equivalent to 2 eggs)
4 tablespoons water
1 cup non-hydrogenated, nondairy butter, room temperature, cut into pieces
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick oats (not instant)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
2 cups nondairy semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or use a non-stick cookie/baking sheet

In a food processor or blender, whip the Egg Replacer and water together, until it’s thick and creamy – blending it this way results in a better consistency than blending by hand.
Using an electric mixer or food processor, cream the butter, sugars and vanilla until well blended.
Add the Egg Replacer mixture and thoroughly combine.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the oats.
Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture just until it begins to form a dough.
Add chocolate chips and nuts (if using) and stir to combine.
Place dough in a bowl.
Cover with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate one hour.
To create uniform cookies use a mini ice cream scoop.
Bake cookies for 12 minutes, or until edges are lightly golden.
Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies

1/2 cup (1 stick) nondairy butter
1 1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
8 ounces soy sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 cup Ener G Egg Replacer powder whisked with 1/3 cup warm
water until gooey
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup full-fat coconut milk

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Lightly spray with cooking spray and dust lightly with flour two 8 inch round or spring-form cake pans. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter until creamy. Add the sugar and beat for an additional 3-4 minutes or until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the sour cream, vanilla, lemon juice, and Egg Replacer mixture. Beat until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
In another mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet in several additions, alternating with the coconut milk, until all of the ingredients have been added.
Pour the batter into the prepared pans, dividing the batter evenly between the two pans. Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center emerges clean. Cool the cakes in the pans for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Then run a lightly oiled knife around the edges to loosen the cakes from the pans. Allow the cakes to cool completely before removing from pans and frosting them with a frosting of your choice.
