Vegan cinnamon star cookies
Baking cookies can often be messy and complicated so I came up with a recipe that's as easy as possible and doesn't create a big mess either. A great way to get your friends and family around to bake cookies together. No funny ingredients, all easy to obtain. I used an apple as an egg replacement and it worked absolutely fine, it really binds the ingredients well and gives it a bit of an apple flavour as well.

Happy vegan holidays to you all!
INGREDIENTS (roughly 50 cookies):
- 1 medium size apple (peeled)
- 150ml sunflower (or coconut) oil
- 200g flour
- 150g icing sugar
- 100g ground almonds (almond flour)
- 1 heaped tsp cinnamon
Other things you will need:
- Cookie cutter
- Baking paper
Preheat your oven to 160C (320F).
Peel 1 medium size apple, deseed and chop up into small pieces. Add to a smoothie blender together with 150ml of sunflower oil (you can also use coconut oil).
Blend until smooth.
Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix together. Then add the apple/oil mix, combine and knead well until you get a nice dough.
Cover up and let chill in the fridge (or outside if it's winter where you are) for 30 minutes.
Place dough between two sheets of baking paper.
Roll out with a rolling pin (or a bottle of wine will do as well). You want to get a 5mm thickness.
Take off the top sheet of baking paper and start cutting out the star cookies with a cookie cutter.
Place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes (any longer and they would be too hard).
Let cool down and then sprinkle icing sugar on them.
They will keep well in an airtight tin for 2 weeks.
Happy vegan holidays and enjoy!
