Vegan shortbread with raspberry jam, chocolate, sprinkles… now we’re getting somewhere.

  • Ingredients:
    cookie dough
    1 cup vegan sugar
    1/2 cup vegan margarine, at room temperature
    1/2 cup vegan cream cheese, softened
    2 cups + 1 TBS all-purpose flour
    1 tsp baking powder

    chocolate dipping sauce
    1 cup vegan chocolate chips
    1 tsp vegan shortening

    filling
    2 TBS seedless raspberry jam
    topping (optional)
    vegan sprinkles
  • Instructions:
    Preheat oven to 375F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

    In a food processor, combine sugar, margarine and cream cheese, and process until smooth and well blended. Add flour and baking powder and pulse until well combined. Do not overmix. Put in a bowl and place in the refrigerator for a few minutes.

    Transfer the cookie dough to a flat work surface between two sheets of parchment paper. Roll out the dough to 1/2″ thick. Using a shot glass, cut the cookies and put them on the prepared baking sheets. Bake until golden, for about 12 minutes. Cool on the cookie sheets then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Place the chocolate chips and shortening in a small saucepan on low heat. When melted, stir and remove from stove. Take a cooled cookie and place a small amount of jam on the underside. Top with another cookie to form a sandwich. Dip half of the sandwich in the chocolate sauce, decorate with sprinkles, and place on a sheet of waxed paper to set.

    You can leave some cookies un-dipped or un-sandwiched or un-sprinkled. Or you can fully dip them and coat them with sprinkles. Let your imagination run free.
