Merry Christmas Eve!
I know it's a little late for a holiday cookie recipe... but if you're like me you have some time off & you'll still be baking up a storm this week :)
And if not?
Well, these are good all year long in all shapes & sizes so just hang on to the recipe for later.
These are my favorite, go-to gluten free and vegan cookie cutter cookies.
My fabulous shortbread recipe strongly resembles this one here.
She did a wonderful job & I barely edited a thing.
I just swapped the butter for Earth Balance vegan butter & the egg for vegan cream cheese and voila!
Holiday cookie perfection :)
Ok, ready to bake!?
Gluten Free & Vegan Shortbread Cookies
- 1 cup (2 sticks) Earth Balance vegan butter (room temp)
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 TBSP vegan cream cheese (Tofutti is great)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/4 cups gluten free flour (this one works very well for me)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp xanthan gum
There you have it.
"The best shortbread cookies ever." According to my #1 fan/husband (who happens to have no problems with regular cookies but prefers these just the same.)
PS if you're having trouble finding a good vegan Royal Icing recipe, try this one.
It's my fave :)
Happy Happy Christmas to you & yours from me & mine.
