Sweet Surf Treats

Delicious vegan Cookies in Show-off Shapes, but really easy to make. Suitable for everyone, for every time of the year, and especially for Christmas.

Recipes for approximately 50 cookies, depending of the size of the cutters. You can find surfboard-shaped cutters in well-sorted baking shops, I found mine on Etsy. For the print, I used a cake stamp with changeable letters.

Vanilla Cookies

300 g Wheat Flour Type 405 or spelt flour Type 630
200 g Margarine (best without palm oil)
100 g Raw cane sugar
1 teaspoon Bourbon-Vanilla

Lemon Cookies

300 g Wheat Flour Type 405 or spelt flour Type 630
200 g Margarine (best without palm oil)
100 g Raw cane sugar
1 lemon zest

You can use either a whisk, a hand mixer or a food processor.

1 First, whisk up the soft margarine until smooth. Add the sugar slowly and make a nice butter-sugar-cream. Add vanilla/lemon.
2 Add the Flour, using a wooden spoon handle or a dough hook. Use your hands to form a ball, put it in a bowl, cover it up and refrigerate for 1 hour.
3 Preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F (air-circulating oven) or 200°C/390°F (top-/bottom heating oven)
4 Take one portion after another out to make the cookies otherwise it might get too soft. Roll out the dough (1 cm), using some flour to prevent sticking and cut out your cookies. It is helpful to use a cake shovel to transfer the cookies to the baking tray.
5 If you want to add nuts, stick them on the cookies now. If you have a cookie stamp, use it now.
6 Bake for approximately 10 Minutes
7 Let them cool down properly before touching
Decorate them with colored icing, powdered sugar, or whatever comes into your mind.
