Simple and easy recipes are the best! I love plain biscuits, like shortbread or linzer. But most of them needs butter – a lot of butter in fact. Since we are trying to eat more vegan if possible – I made these cookies and they are so simple to prepare that even children can make them from scratch. (Obviously, adult should supervise the baking and oven handling process.)
My children have really enjoyed making these too, cutting the shapes and adding the chocolate chips. (Mostly eating them, haha!) Because of the short baking time they won’t melt, so you . can even use themas decoration, like we did. I can’t say, that they stay fresh for weeks, because we ate them all in a matter of a day – which is why we need to make less next time – but I reckon for a few days they would survive in a biscuit tin. You can also add icing to these as they are strong enough to cope with the icing.
Enjoy. Perhaps with a glass of milk or nut milk?
These are so simple and easy - yet delicious!
- 200 g vegan margarine room temperature
- 100 g soft brown sugar/golden caster sugar or white caster sugar for blonde biscuits
- 300 g plain flour
- chocolate chips for decorating optional
Preheat oven to 175 Celsius.
Combine everything in a mixing bowl and form a dough.
Cut the biscuits with cutters - use some flour to dust the surface you're rolling the dough out - it's a bit sticky!
You can add some chocolate chips if you'd like!
Bake them for 10-12 minutes - they burn easily if they are thin. I like them that way, a little more crispiness! Keep them in a biscuit tin.
