Vegan Yule Cookies

Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice which is the day with the shortest amount of light and the longest night. Many ancient cultures celebrated the solstice by feasting, gift giving, sacrificing and partying for up to twelve days.  Pagans called the solstice Yule (Yuletide/Yuletime); praising the return of the sun as well as participating in celebrations. Many of today’s “Christ”mas traditions stem from Yule and Saturnalia. So to honour my ancient ancestors I will be celebrating Yule with a small feast for one seated by my yule log after I’m done working for the day and then enjoying some delicious cookies.

My gift to you is this really awesome vegan cookie recipe perfect for the holidays
