VEGAN GINGERBREAD COOKIES METHOD:
- Preheat the oven to 160ºC.
- In a large bowl, sieve the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl whisk the wet ingredients until well combined.
- Combine your wet mixture to the dry mixture together and mix until it starts to look like wet sand.
- Using your hands press the mixture firmly together to form a dough. And let rest for 5 minutes.
- Firmly roll out and press down the dough until it’s about 5mm thick.
- Now you can cut out your cookie shapes using festive cookie cutters.
- Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper, and bake the cookies for 10 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before icing.
- ICING: add the coconut cream to the icing sugar until you have a consistency that is runny enough to pipe, but not completely liquid.
- Scoop the icing into a piping bag and unleash your inner festive Picasso. There is no right or wrong way to decorate a Christmas cookie.
- Let the icing set overnight at room temperature before storing in a glass jar to gift to your loved one.
