Vegan Christmas cookies: ginger and cinnamon

Good morning everyone!We continue with the Vegan Christmas recipes so that everyone can plant a 100% vegetable dish on their table this Christmas. Today I come with a vegan sweet : Vegan Christmas gingerbread cookies and cinnamon, a classic, but this time filled with strawberry jam. They come mounted in two, stuffed and with the hole on top to give it a more Christmas touch, when the vibrant red color of the strawberry jam appears.

They are designed to serve guests as a sweet treat to close the dinner. They are very satiating, and if you really serve them at Christmas lunches and dinners, it is likely that your guests will not eat more than two assembled cookies, because they will already be sated from the savory dishes.

Ingredients

2 cups of oatmeal (*standard size cup, look for the most average size you have at home)
2 cups of wheat flour
1 small tsp baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon ginger
1/2 cup agave syrup
3/4 cup olive oil (I know it sounds like a lot, but don’t be scared)
A small splash of non-dairy milk (I used soy milk, but use the one you like best)
Strawberry jam
Optional: Powdered sugar (final decoration)
Baking paper
Rolling pin for rolling out dough
Cutter mold 6 cm diameter for the outside, 3 cm diameter for the inside

Step by step

  1. I started by grinding the oats into flakes to get flour since I didn’t have it at home, but if you have the flour ready, you skip to step 3.
  2. Put the flour in the grinder and grind it for several minutes until the flake has completely broken down and everything is the same thickness as wheat flour.< /li>
  3. We mix the two cups of oatmeal with two cups of wheat flour and a teaspoon of baking powder.

  5. Add 1/2 cup of agave syrup and mix vigorously again.

  6. Then add a stream of soy milk (count up to approx 2 seconds from when you pour the stream). Then, with the same cup of flour, fill it up to 3/4 with olive oil and add it to the bowl.
  7. Knead well with a shovel and, when all the flour is adhered between it, We begin to knead with our hands.
  8. It is normal if at first you notice that some pieces of dough come off. Don’t worry, knead well until everything is uniform.
  9. If you see that the dough continues to come off and you can’t roll it into a ball (last photo below), add a little more olive oil and continue kneading very gently. force. The problem should be corrected, but remember that it is a dough that is normal to crack. If it comes off a lot, it lacks fat.

  10. Now, carefully and with a rolling pin, stretch the dough until it is about 0.5 centimeters thick.
  11. We cut with our molds, making the same number of cookies without holes as with.

  12. Cut all over the dough, remove the unshaped cuttings and knead the remaining dough again. We round it again, stretch and cut it… like this until we use all the dough.
  13. Place all the cookies on the baking paper (I had to make two batches of cookies).
  14. < li> We paint them with the agave syrup on top, to sweeten them, hydrate them and give them a brighter finish. Try not to drip syrup on the baking paper, because it will burn and make the cookies bitter.

  15. Put them in the oven, turned on from the bottom at about 180 degrees. The time can vary a lot, so I recommend you set them for 15-20 minutes and then check the condition of the cookies below. If they are still not a little toasty, leave them a little longer.
  16. When they are already a lightly toasty color underneath, remove them, although from the top they may still seem a little white. That texture is what we are looking for, otherwise, they will be hard.

  17. Remove them from the oven and let them cool until they are cold.
  18. Then, assemble them. To do this, we place the flat ones below and the hoops on top of each one. Then, we sprinkle the icing sugar well on top until we decorate the whole ring. We do it before adding the jam so that it doesn’t stain the jam and it’s prettier.
  19. Now, we fill the biscuits by lifting the rings, putting a generous layer of jam and closing again. If you consider it, you can add a little more jam with the cookie already closed, inside the ring. This will make it stand out a bit and look better.
  20. And that’s it! Enjoy them.
