Ingredients

Cookies

Decoration

  • 100 g dark vegan chocolate
  • 100 g white vegan chocolate (Sainsburys sells this in the Free From section)
  • 50 g freeze dried strawberries or raspberries
  • 50 g chopped nuts (optional, pistachios work very well)

Instructions

Cookies

  • Pre heat oven to 180 C.
  • Put the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl. Mix.
  • Mix linseed egg, oil and vanilla in a separate bowl. Then add to the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Mix well (you can also do this with your hands).
  • Sprinkle some flour on your kitchen surface. Roll out the dough to about 3mm thick. Add extra flour if dough is still too wet.
  • Cut the dough into heart shapes or shape of choice using a cookie cutter.
  • Place the cut cookie dough on a baking tray with baking parchment. Cook for 10-12 minutes. They are ready when they have just a very slight browning to them. Don’t worry if the cookies are still a little soft in the middle - they will harden out of the oven.
  • Once cooked, put the cookies on a cooling rack. Once cool they can be decorated.

Decoration

  • Place a glass bowl over simmering water, and put chopped white or dark chocolate in the bowl to melt. 
  • Once melted, dip halve a cookie into the chocolate and immediately sprinkle with the dried fruit. You can also sprinkle with chopped pistachios if desired.
  • Repeat process with the other colour chocolate on the rest of the cookies. Or you can use both colour chocolates on one cookie and make patterns using a toothpick.
