By Lena's Vegan Living
🔪Prep Time: 50 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 10 mins
1 ½ cup gluten free mix Red Bob’s mill or Anita’s Organic Mill
1 cup almond meal or flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup cooled vegan butter I use Earth Balance
1/4 cup Maple syrup
¼ cup arrow root powder
2 tbsp Ice cold water you may add more if needed, just be careful
1Place all the ingredients except water and maple syrup into a food processor and start pressing the pulse button.
2Continue full speed until it looks like breadcrumbs.
3Add 1 tbs ice cold water and blend again. Add 1 tbsp maple syrup and blend again then repeat. Add rest of the maple syrup and blend full speed until the dough turns into a ball.
4Remove the dough, shape two balls and place them into refrigerator for 30min.
5Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and add flour on your working surface to prevent dough from sticking.
6Take the first ball and gently make it little bit flat. Start rolling slowly, yet powerfully. You may apply plastic wrap on top of the dough to help you to make it easier to work with. Keep
7rolling until you achieve a thickness about 5mm/0.18inch. Don’t worry about the edges, just cut them off and place them into a bowl.
8Preheat the oven to 350F, 180C.
9Gently insert your cookie cutter on the edge of the dough, remove the edges with sharp knife and slide spatula underneath the cookie. Pull out gently, remove the cookie cutter and place on the baking sheet. Repeat until you have it all done.
10Bake for t0 10min.
11•When ready, carefully transfer to a cookie rack and let it cool down for 15min.
12Apply about 1tbsp of jam in the centre of each cookie and gently press down.
13You will have lots of edge leftovers, so combine them by using plastic wrap by pressing them into a ball and repeating the process.
14Before serving, you may apply some Erythritol on top instead of regular sugar if you like.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
