These little treats turned out so well. There are very few left, please don’t judge me haha.
They are super light, sweet and incredibly easy. The most difficult part is the rolling in the icing sugar because that stuff gets everywhere.
What you’ll need:
227 g vegan butter or margarine
80 g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
290 g cake flour
50 g pecans (finely chopped)
40 g dried cranberries (finely chopped)
± 1 cup icing sugar for rolling
How to do it:
Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment (you can do this process by hand it just takes so much longer) add the butter and icing sugar and beat until combined and a bit fluffy.
Add the vanilla and flour, mix on slow speed until incorporated (about 3 minutes).
Add the chopped pecans and cranberries, mix on slow until incorporated. The mixture may look a little dry, just keep mixing it will come together.
Now it’s time to roll your cookies. I used a TBS measure as a scoop. With these it’s best to keep them around that size. Scoop out a little dough at a time, roll it between your palms until you have a round little ball and place on the prepared baking sheet. Continue with the rest of the dough.
Bake for 15 minutes. This may differ a couple minutes either side but what you are looking for is for the underside of the cookies to be a nice golden brown colour. They may seem soft still, but they will harden while cooling so don’t worry.
When the cookies are slightly warm, like 10 minutes into cooling. Do your first icing sugar roll, place a cookie at a time in the bowl of icing sugar, when evenly coated, place back on a cooling rack.
When the cookie are completely cool, roll them one more time. Then eat them x
