Vegan Shortbread

“It is as though it is a crime for a woman to be undressed in public, unless she was undressed in the service of a corporation or a commercial entrepreneur” – R Grueneich

This is another recipe from our lovely neighbour Frank. We were a bit crap with getting things posted over Christmas (you know how it is) but today is officially the 12th day of Christmas so our last chance to post something vaguely festive. Thanks to Frank for the amazing recipe. He makes the cutest food!

Remember to check out our exciting crumble competition! 

7 Merry Christmas to yooooou

Makes: 20 biscuits, Prep time: 15 minutes, Cooking time: 25 minutes

Ingredients: 110g vegan marg, 175g plain flour, 65g caster sugar, icing sugar for dusting

To make the festive shortbread, I preheated the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4, and greased the baking tray.

Next, I rubbed the marg into the flour until it looked like breadcrumbs, then stirred in the sugar. I then gently kneaded the mixture into a smooth dough, and rolled it out on a floured surface.

I used snowman and reindeer cookie cutters to cut shapes into the dough, and placed them onto the baking tray. I cooked the biscuits for around 25 minutes, turning them occasionally.

Once cooked and cooled, I coated the snowmen in icing sugar. I used raisins to create eyes, mouths, and coat buttons for the snowmen, cherry halves for their scarves, and tiny pieces of carrot for their noses. I used dried cranberries for the reindeer noses, and walnuts for their antlers.
