These peppermint and molasses cookies make the most delicious, festive holiday cookies, although they are good any time of the year! They are a family favorite, and my absolute favorite cookie, so I decided to illustrate the recipe. My Grandma used to make these for Christmas every year, and she kept the recipe secret for the longest time...but now the secret is out! I make these cookies in a vegan form, but I've illustrated the traditional recipe. All the elements within the illustration are hand-painted with watercolor.

OhMyGoodness! I love everything about this illustrated recipe! Super fun lettering. It has a lovely sense of nostalgia but is also very fresh! This is hand painted, yes? I would love your vegan version :-)

thanks so much Salli! Yes it's all handpainted, in watercolor.
If you sub the butter with vegan butter (same amount), sub out the white and brown sugar with 1/2c maple syrup, sub the egg with 1T flaxseed+3 T water, aaand sub the milk with almond milk (same amount) -- then you've got yourself some delicious vegan cookies!
