Vegan shortbread cookies! Incredibly easy recipe, made with only 3 basic ingredients, they will quickly become your favourite cookies!
Can you believe that we are now talking Easter?
Neither can I, but the fact that it’s only 3 weeks away, speaks for itself! And as we all know, as soon as Easter is mentioned, the bakes, cakes, and cookies will follow!
So in the spirit of upcoming holidays, I’ve made this super easy, yet super tasty, vegan shortbread. And since the shape and general appearance is very much cookie- like, let’s call it vegan shortbread cookies.
And would you believe it, it is made with 3 ingredients?!? Just 3 basic ingredients, but possibilities are endless. Because you can add whatever you wish to the basic dough recipe.
So far, I’ve tried them with lemon oil, rose and hibiscus flowers (on the pictures), cocoa, chocolate chips and amaretto. And it just works every time!
I know it’s not a super complicated or fancy recipe, but that’s what I believe makes it great. Every now and then, I think we all forget how few, simple ingredients can make magic happen!
Since this recipe is so easy, it is almost impossible not to succeed! Just remember to chill the dough. And I would strongly suggest at least couple of hours in the fridge. Because chilled dough is much better to slice. Also, it is just easier to work with. So minimum an hour of chilling, but if you can, give it a bit longer.
These crumbly, vegan shortbread cookies are full of wonderful, buttery taste. They are perfect for family gatherings, afternoon teas or mid- morning coffees. Just a good all- rounders really. And I’ve got a feeling, they will quickly become one of your favourite cookies too!
Have a great week ahead, and talk soon!
Delicious shortbread cookies, made with only 3 basic ingredients!
- 175 g vegan butter or spread (softened)
- 85 g caster sugar (or golden caster sugar)
- 200 g plain flour
Using a wooden spoon, mix the butter and sugar together.
Stir in the flour, and using your hands, mix it all together until ingredients are combined.
Halve the dough and roll each piece into a log, about 5cm thick. Wrap in cling film and chill for at least an hour.
Heat the oven to 180 C (slightly lower if fan oven). Slice the logs into rounds, about 1 cm thick. Transfer them to a baking tray lined up with baking parchment, and bake for about 10- 12 minutes until lightly golden. Allow to cool on the tray.
