A new Christmas tradition – Vegan Snickerdoodles Cookies. Soft and chewy puffed up cookies with the right amount of cinnamon and a hint of vanilla.
This recipe is adapted from my snickerdoodle recipe from last year, but this time, I used vegan butter and aquafaba for this vegan version. Aquafaba works great as an egg substitute in this recipe.
During baking, the cookies will puff up and the surface should crack, giving them the characterized snickerdoodle look.
- 200g all purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1¼ teaspoons baking powder
- 110g vegan butter, soft
- 150g granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons aquafaba
- 1 teaspoon vanilla paste
- - For the coating:
- 40g granulated white sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
- In a big bowl, beat the butter and sugar until creamy using a hand mixer (about 2 to 3 minutes). Add the aquafaba and continue beating until well combined.
- Beat in the vanilla paste. Add the flour mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until you have a smooth dough. Cover and refrigerate until firm (1 hour).
- Preheat oven to 400F (190C) and place rack in the centre of the oven. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Shape the dough into 2.5 cm round balls.
- Coating: In a large bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
- Roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar and place on the prepared baking sheet, spacing about 4 cm apart. Using the bottom of a glass to gently flatten each cookie before baking will help to have an even bake.
- Bake the cookies for about 8 - 10 minutes, or until they are light golden brown and firm around the edges and the centre of the cookies will still be a little soft.
- Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
I love eating cookie dough, specially when it is vegan, but in this case, DON’T – you will taste the aquafaba, which is not so pleasant. But the baked Vegan Snickerdoodles Cookies taste so amazing.
