Vegan Jam drop cookies

I can eat a whole batch of these cookies with one sitting. They are so addicting you can’t just have one. These cookies are a perfect snack with a cup of tea or just to enjoy on their own. They are colorful and stunning to look at. I hope you enjoy them too.


2     cup      Cake flour

¼     tsp       Salt

1      cup      Plant-based butter

¾     cup       Sugar

3     Tbsp     Almond milk

1      tsp        Vanilla essence

*Any jam of choice. Here I used strawberry jam, passion fruit jam and lemon curd.

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a stand mixer or handheld mixer beat the butter, sugar and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the almond milk and continue to mix.
  4. In a bowl sift together the flour, sugar and salt.
  5. Add the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  6. Roll the dough into small balls.
  7. Place the cookie balls onto a baking tray and use your finger or the back of a wooden spoon to make an indent in the middle.
  8. Place a small amount of jam into each indent.
  9. Bake the cookies for about 10-15 minutes( depending on your oven ) or until light brown.
  10. Leave the cookies on the baking tray to cool for about 10 minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. Store cookies in an airtight container in the fridge(I like mine cold) or at room temperature.
