Thanksgiving Vegan Baking Recipes

Here are all the recipes on Veganbaking.net that are perfect for Thanksgiving!

Vegan Gingerbread Marmalade Sandwich Cookies

Vegan Gingerbread Marmalade Sandwich CookiesI’m a huge fan of linzer cookies which are sandwich cookies featuring an almond pastry crust sandwiching a tart raspberry jam center. I’m also a huge fan of gingerbread paired with orange. The tart orange pairs well with the spicy, bright flavors of ginger. These Vegan Gingerbread Marmalade Sandwich Cookies were borne out of a desire to combine the best qualities of these cookie styles, featuring a cookie that also delivers a crispy exterior, giving way to a chewy, jam layered center. 
Since this recipe features gingerbread, it relies on placing the dough in the refrigerator between steps to ensure the dough is stiff and easy to work with. It’s worth clearing space in your freezer for two baking sheets before you start. I recommend using small cookie cutters for these cookies because the dough will spread out considerably during baking, making the cookies larger. I ended up using a small flower cookie cutter and an apple corer to cut the center holes. Adding about 4 drops of orange extract to the marmalade will ensure it has enough strength to stand up against and optimally pair with the gingerbread.

Vegan Garlic Tarragon Bread Spread

Garlic Tarragon Bread SpreadThis Vegan Garlic Tarragon Bread Spread recipe features extra virgin olive oil, onion, garlic, fresh tarragon and just a touch of white wine vinegar to evoke a complex buttery flavor with a sharp cheese inspired finish.

Holiday dinners at my Godparent's house was always a special occasion. The food was inspirational but the the one dish that my brother and I looked forward to all year was the simple but perfect implementation of garlic bread. This consisted of a store-bought flute of San Francisco sourdough, sliced but leaving the bottom crust intact so the slices could be torn off as the loaf worked its way around the table. This loaf was buttered between the slices, wrapped in tin foil and warmed in the oven. Buttering the slices while leaving the loaf intact had the advantage of ensuring both sides of each slice was buttered. Wrapping the loaf in tin foil had the benefit of allowing the entire loaf to be saturated with buttery aromas and flavors during its time in the oven and the tin foil could be folded back over the loaf in between servings to keep the bread warm while it was on the table. Brilliant!

Vegan Caramel Apple Cheesecake

Vegan Caramel Apple CheesecakeFor those difficult times when you can’t decide whether to make a vegan apple pie or a cheesecake, do both! This Vegan Caramel Apple Cheesecake recipe utilizes soy yogurt that is left with pureed almond and non-dairy milk for up to 24 hours so the Lactobacillus cultures in the yogurt can enhance the flavors of the mixture. In order for this to work as effectively as possible it’s important to use unsweetened non-dairy soy yogurt containing Lactobacillus and with as little additives and thickeners as possible. Lactobacillus cultures are bacteria that ferment sugars in the food and produce complex flavors and acids such as lactic acid.

Vegan Spring Form Crusts | Gluten-free

Vegan Spring Form CrustVegan crusts are the foundation of many desserts so it’s important to treat them seriously. When making a crust for a springform pan, it’s important to have options that pair nicely with your dessert. One example is that you'd want to use a gluten-free crust with a gluten-free cheesecake. Regular cheesecakes go great with a graham cracker crust recipe but what if you’re not going the traditional route? That Vegan Apple Caramel Cheesecake might be better paired with a ginger snap cookie crust or a walnut crust. What if you’re doing something entirely different from a cheesecake or maybe you have a gluten intolerance? Maybe you want to take it to the next level and make a Vegan Chocolate Mouse with a hazelnut crust! Now you can do almost any type of spring form crust if you have access to dry cookies or nuts based on the recipe below.

Vegan Double Chocolate Fudge

Vegan Double Chocolate FudgeWhen working on this Vegan Double Chocolate Fudge recipe I learned that in order to master fudge, you need to thoroughly understand caramelization. Luckily, after dozens of fudgy failures, I now understand caramelization well enough to the point of where I can proudly share my recipe for all to enjoy, because you, dear reader, are worth more than marshmallow fluff. This recipe is easy as long as you follow it closely. 

Vegan Rum Spice Icing

Vegan Rum Spice IcingThis Vegan Rum Spice Icing recipe is a great companion for drizzling on spiced versions of Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls, danishes, or Pop Tarts. The vegan icing features powdered sugar for its base, dark rum, cinnamon, cardamom and cloves to move the spice factor forward. Feel free to cut back on the rum or eliminate it completely if you're concerned about alcohol consumption.

Vegan Cashew Egg Nog

Vegan Cashew Egg NogThis Vegan Cashew Egg Nog recipe is super easy to make and doesn't actually contain eggs. It's just a great 'nog to put a splash of bourbon or rum into. It's even good on it's own. Using the arrowroot powder or tapioca flour is important to achieve the creamy texture and emulsify the fats with the rest of the liquids. Perfect for a lazy evening next to a crackling fire space heater. Legend has it that egg nog originated in England where it consisted of a mix of milk, eggs and either brandy, Madeira or sherry. It wasn't until it was brought over the the United States that it started to get mixed with bourbon, a reaction to other liquor's scarcity during the American Revolutionary War.

Vegan Apple Walnut Stuffing

Vegan Apple Walnut StuffingThis Vegan Apple Walnut Stuffing recipe is great inside Stuffed Seitan or alongside some Cranberry Sauce during holiday feasts. Apples give it a light flavor-enhancing sweetness which is a great accompaniment to the textures of water chestnuts and walnuts.

Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake with Caramel Sauce

Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake with Caramel SaucePumpkin Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts during the holidays. This vegan recipe variation pairs pumpkin with Easy Vegan Caramel Sauce for a great way to end a feast. It also features barley malt syrup, lemon juice, cinnamon and ginger powder to help marry bold pumpkin flavor with vegan creaminess. I recommend opting for non-hydrogenated vegan cream cheese so you can avoid trans fats. This vegan cheesecake also goes great with a dollop of Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream.

Vegan Pumpkin Bourbon Bread Pudding

Vegan Pumpkin Bourbon Bread PuddingBread pudding is probably the most comfortable comfort food. What other type of food has a moist pudding-like texture paired with a soft cake-like feel? Take some barley malt syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. Now add some pumpkin and bourbon to the mix and you have this Vegan Pumpkin Bourbon Bread Pudding recipe to warm your soul. In one bite all your worries are forgotten for a few minutes. Preparing this bread pudding is really easy, provided you already have pumpkin purée. For the base, you can use any bread that is light in color and neutral in flavor.

Vegan Sweet Potato Pecan Ice Cream

Vegan Sweet Potato Pecan Ice CreamWhen this Vegan Sweet Potato Pecan Ice Cream recipe is mentioned to passerby one of two things usually happens: people either express great joy or wince and convulse. Sweet potatoes are pumpkin 2.0 people! They have a much more complex flavor than pumpkin so I just cut to the chase and paired them with candied pecans to make this vegan ice cream. You could substitute pumpkin purée if you really wanted to but it's not recommended unless you're stuck on a dessert island with nary a single sweet potato in sight.

Vegan Peanut Butter Maple Fudge

Vegan Peanut Butter Maple FudgePeanut butter and maple syrup have this amazing relationship. I think they might be in love with each other. This Vegan Peanut Butter Maple Fudge recipe is really easy to make and you have the option of adding chocolate chips if you want to crank up the flavor/passion levels even more.

Vegan Bourbon Baked Apples

Vegan Bourbon Baked ApplesThis Vegan Bourbon Baked Apple recipe is a great way to get that ridiculously good apple flavor without resorting to the time intensive sport of pie making. It's kind of like an apple pie but without all the crust drama. The core of the apple is removed and replaced with a delectable mixture of pecans or walnuts, raisins, maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg. The whole deal is then doused with bourbon and baked to perfection. I won't tell if you drink some of the bourbon to make sure it's okay.

Creamy Vegan Cashew Cheesecake

Vegan Creamy Cashew CheesecakeThis Creamy Vegan Cashew Cheesecake recipe is a natural take on a vegan cheesecake that doesn't use space age ingredients like cheesecakes using store bought vegan cream cheeses often do. I tried to strike a good balance between unprocessed ingredients and high quality flavor. This cheesecake uses a cashew base enhanced with apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and just the right amount of sugar and vanilla extract to tie it all together.

Vegan Pumpkin Gingerbread Cookies

Vegan Pumpkin Gingerbread CookiesPumpkin purée gives this Vegan Pumpkin Gingerbread Cookie recipe extra Halloween street cred. These cookies also pack a combination of barley malt syrup and molasses enhanced with ginger, nutmeg, cloves and just the right amount of vanilla extract for a scary good flavor.

Sassy Vegan Shortbread Cookies

Sassy Vegan Shortbread CookiesThis Sassy Vegan Shortbread Cookie recipe is easy to make and has lots of possibilities for customizing. The buttery vegan cookies pack a generous helping of Vegan Butter with just a touch of vanilla extract for a delectable flavor and a satisfying crunch.

Vegan Mulled Wine - A Hot Spiced Wine that's great for the Holidays


This Vegan Mulled Wine recipe uses maple syrup as its primary sweetener then utilizes allspice berries, cinnamon bark, orange peel and clove berries for a smooth, spicy wine that will soothe those winter blues. This vegan spiced wine is great for holiday parties because it's easy to make and it gets things started.

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Pie


This Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Pie recipe combines probably the three best flavor combinations in the entire dessert world. These three prominent flavors are then brought together in this vegan pie with brown rice syrup, non-dairy milk and a touch of salt. Use Flaky Pie Crust for best results.

Vegan Sweet Potato Pie


I always thought properly made pumpkin pie was amazing until I tried sweet potato pie. Sweet potatoes are sweeter and the flavor is considerably more complex than pumpkin purée so that's why I was so excited to develop this Vegan Sweet Potato Pie recipe. This vegan pie is further enhanced with cashew butter, barley malt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves to create a flavor that will leave pumpkin in the dust. Try making it with Flaky Vegan Pie Crust.


Vegan Sweet Corn Tomatillo Pudding | Gluten-free

Vegan Sweet Corn Tomatillo PuddingThis Vegan Sweet Corn Tomatillo Pudding recipe features savory buttery flavor enhancers such as non-dairy milk, brown rice syrup, corn kernels, lime juice, just the right ratio of corn flour to corn meal and chopped tomatillos for a welcoming spicy finish. The result is a gluten-free vegan bread pudding that elevates corn to newfound status in the bread pudding world. You'll never need to go to another corporate American Tex Mex restaurant again to get it.
