Small Batch Vegan Shortbread Cookies

Small Batch Vegan Shortbread Cookies Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 30 minutes


1 cup All Purpose Flour (125g)

1/4 cup White Granulated Sugar (50g) plus more for rolling

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 cup Vegan Butter (112g)


1Preheat the oven to 300°F (149°C).

2Sift the flour and add it to a mixing bowl. Add the sugar and salt and mix together.

3Then add the vegan butter, rubbing it in with your fingers. It will first be crumbly and then gradually will form into cookie dough.

4Form the cookie dough into a ball and then flatten it out on a flour dusted surface and cut out some cookies. You can either use a rolling pin or your hands to flatten it out to around 1/2 inch thick. The dough is quite fragile, so if you use a rolling pin, you can roll and sort of press at the same time. Dust the top of the dough with flour so that the rolling pin doesn't stick. Roll the cookies in more granulated sugar and place onto a parchment lined baking tray.

5Roll the remaining dough into a ball again and flatten out again, cutting out more cookies and then repeat.

6At the end you'll cut out your final cookie, and whatever's left won't be enough for a last cookie, so just roll into a small ball, roll it in sugar and add it to the baking tray as a bonus cookie.

7You should have around 8-9 cookies.

8Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes* until lightly golden on top.

9Remove from the oven and allow them to cool and firm up directly on the tray before moving them.
