6 dairy free, vegan christmas cookie recipes
With December now arrived,
it certainly is starting to feel a lot like Christmas around here.
Which means it's time to start baking those old
seasonal favourites like gingerbread, shortbread
& piped cookies.
While traditional Christmas cookies tend to be heavily
laden with butter & eggs,
we have found that the traditional recipes
are very easily adapted to vegan ingredients,
with delicious results.
We can't wait to get into the kitchen
and try out some of these delicious festive vegan baking ideas.
1: Danish Butter Cookies
These were a favourite treat in their fancy boxes when we were little.
Made with vegan butter, they pipe beautifully & taste delicious.
2: Gingerbread Men, Women & Shapes
The most fun about making these is the decorating, we reckon.
If you are gifting them, try incorporating the recipient's personality
into your design - e.g. pipe on a tennis racket for a sport's fan.
3: Chocolate + Date Christmas Gift Truffles
(vegan, gluten free, raw)
Ok - these aren't technically cookies - but we couldn't resist including them
because they would make a delicious nibble amongst a gift of mixed cookies.
4: Ginger Spice Biscuits
These chewy, golden, spiced biscuits are an old favourite with a modern, vegan twist.
Being made from wholemeal spelt flour, they're a healthier version too!
5: Peppermint Patties
Made with cashews & macadamias,
these little peppermint patties are a delicious and more healthy version
of an old-fashioned favourite.
6: Ginger Molasses Cookies
(vegan, gluten free)
The aroma that perfumes the house when these are baking
screams "Christmas". Yum!
