Ingredients

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 Tbsp Clean Lean Protein Smooth Vanilla
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 0.8 cup vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cold water if needed
  • 150g raspberry jam
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar

Method

  1. Add flour, ground almonds, sugar, and salt to a bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Add diced cold plant-based butter on top. Start kneading with cold hands.
  3. If needed, add cold water and knead until a smooth dough forms.
  4. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut out rounds. Use a smaller cutter to make a hole in the centre of some rounds. In the end, you should get approx. Twenty-five rounds (the bottom of the cookies) and 25 rings (the top of the cookies). Place all of them on a baking tray covered with baking parchment.
  6. Pre-heat the oven up to 180°C/356°F and bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool down for 10 minutes.
  7. In the meantime, heat the raspberry jam in a small pot.
  8. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of the raspberry jam into the centre of the round. Top with a cookies ring and sprinkle the cookies with icing sugar.
