These cookies are deliciously simple. They are perfect with a cup of tea or coffee. This recipe will be great for those days when you’re starving… If you’d like to make them in a vegan-friendly way, you just have to follow my lovely recipe….!

These simple vegan cookies are made with some ingredients that I had at home. I’m pretty proud of the result and I just would like to share this incredible recipe with you!

INGREDIENTS FOR 15 COOKIES

300 g superfine flour,

100 g whole sugarcane sugar

230 ml seeds oil

3 spoons soy milk

Some lemon peel

A pinch of salt

½ tea spoon turmeric

1 jar apple and ginger jam (any brand will be fine)

PREPARE THE SHORT BREAD VEGAN COOKIES

Mix your dry ingredients all together: put flour, sugarcane sugar, a pinch of salt and curcuma powder.

Then combine all the other ingredients together: add soy milk, oil, and lemon peel.

Get all of the ingredients mixed together with no lumps, until your mixture becomes very smooth.

Wrap the short bread pastry and leave it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Take away the pastry from the fridge and stretch well the dough with a rolling pin. Place them in a baking sheet and cut them into rounded shapes.

Fill the dough with some jam. (I used home-made apple and ginger jam). Take some more pastry and put it on the filled ones. Make sure you close well their edges. Gently snip them on the top with a knife, as you can see in the picture.

Preheat the oven to 180°C and bake them for about 20 minutes.  Enjoy your breakfast!
