Festive Vegan Gingerbread Cookies

It’s 1 week till Christmas, how do we feel right now? Are we excited? Are we ready to see Santa and spend time with our amazing families? I know I am, however I’ve had a little early Christmas with my Dad & Andrea (that’s my step mum) this weekend which has been fabulous! This recipe I’ve been waiting to post it because this is something I want people to make for Christmas and maybe for Santa? And the best bit? It is ridiculously easy and straight forward! So are your ready to get your mouth watering? Let’s go!

Ingredients – Biscuits

  • 250g brown rice flour
  • 100g sugar
  • 1/4 cup Yacon Syrup (optional if not got it, then just add 25g extra sugar)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger (add slowly you don’t want too much)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (I got mine from Lidl as it’s vegan friendly)
  • 80 ml vegan milk (I used almond milk as it adds an amazing flavour!)

Ingredients – Icing

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups soya milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Edible glitter

 Method – Biscuits

  1. Mix together all of the ingredients for the biscuits, add the ginger slowly because you don’t want to overpower the biscuits! Do the same with the milk, but don’t just pour it all on because you don’t want it to be too wet.
  2. Once you’ve finished mixing the mixture, put it in the fridge to proof. I ended up leaving mine for a weekend but leave it for about an hour or 2!
  3. Once out of the fridge use some flour to cover your surface and your rolling pin. Start to roll out your dough, I made mine about 4mm because mine ended up rising and being round biscuits which I found super cute. I used cookie cutters so make up sure you use flour on the edges so the dough doesn’t stick.
  4. Continue to roll out each time until you’re left with a little bit of dough. I ended up making about 40 cookies!
  5. Put in the oven on Gas Mark 4 | 150 C | 300 F for 15 minutes.
  6. Once cooked leave to cook before you ice.

Method – Icing

  1. Slowly mix together all of the ingredients as you go you can add homemade food colouring. P.S You can buy premade vegan friendly icings, just check the ingredients.

Bon Appétit.
