Boo! Happy Halloween, my friends! Today, I’m sharing my recipe for spooky vegan cookies! But don’t worry, they don’t bite back… I think.
These cookies were so popular at my last Halloween party, ghosts and vampires alike were nibbling on them. I even saw a spider munching on one of them. The best thing is, after you’ve left the cookies to cool down and put some glazing on it, you can let your guests decorate them as they please!
Sainsbury’s sell colour writing icing that’s completely vegan (no carmine tricks in this treat!). These cookies bring out the most creative part in people!
Spooky Vegan Cookies
- 225 g flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 50 g icing sugar
- 160 g plant based butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 100 g icing sugar
- 1 tbsp water
- 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
For the cookies
For the icing
- Mix the dry ingredients for the cookies in a bowl.
- Add the butter and vanilla extracts and knead till it’s a firm dough.
- Place in the freezer for 15 minutes and preheat the oven to 180 C.
- Dust your kitchen counter with some flour and roll out the dough. Make small balls and then flatten them. Put the cookies on a baking sheet with enough space between them (~1 cm).
- Bake the cookies for about 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown. Allow them to cool down on a cooling rack before decorating.
- Now make the icing by mixing the icing sugar with the water and lemon juice. If your mixture is too thick, add a bit more water, but be careful cause you don’t want your icing to be runny!
- Spread the icing equally on every cookie and let it harden before decorating with colour writing icing.
