Xmas Vegan Shortcrust Pastry Cookies

December has started, what’s better than making some cookie for Christmas? I have to apologize all of you for the shape of my cookies, I didn’t use any kind of pastry cutter. Next time I will ahaha! But trust me, the taste is so good!

  

INGREDIENTS
300gr flour
30gr white sugar
70gr brown sugar
orange zest (or orange flavouring)
vanilla flavouring
8-9 gr baking powder
130 ml corn oil
200ml water slightly salted

For the icing:
100gr icing sugar
2 tbs water

First, mix the sifted flour and the baking powder with a fork. Do the same with the two type of sugar.

The ingredients are ready, let’s make the dough!

In a bowl mix the oil and the salted water vigorously with a whisk. Then, add the sugar, the orange zest, few drop of vanilla extract, the sifted flour previously mixed with the baking powder.

Knead till the dough doesn’t stick on the bowl anymore. Let it rest in the fridge for 30 min.

In the meanwhile, prepare a baking tray (or more) covered with parchment paper. And why not, clean the kitchen! ;p
When 30 min are up, take the dough out of the fridge and start making the biscuits, preheat the oven at 230°. Transfer every cookie on the baking tray and cook for about 15-20 min till they appear golden on top.

Let them cool down. In the meanwhile, make the icing. Start by putting two tablespoon in a bowl then gradually add the icing sugar . Make sure there’s no lumps while you mix with a fork.
Now the fun part, garnish the biscuits as you like =D. The icing takes few minutes to dry.
Merry Christmas ❤️
