Ingredients
  • ¾ cup vegan butter
  • ½ cup natural cane sugar
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flower
  • edible flowers
Instructions
  1. Cream the sugar and vegan butter together until creamy and smooth
  2. Slowly add the pastry flour and mix just until combined (you maybe want to use your hands to help it come together at the end)
  3. Next take the dough and flatten it into a disk. Wrap with cling film and let chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
  4. After chilling, roll the cookie dough on a lightly floured surface to just over ½ cm (1/4 inch). Cute desired shapes (I used a 6½ cm round). Garnish each cookie with flowers and edible herbs. When all the cookies are decorate, lightly roll the rolling pin over the dough to make sure all the cookies are adhered. Chill the cookies for another 30 minutes.
  5. To bake, preheat the over to 180 C (350 F). Bake the cookies on a parchment lined tray for 8-12 minutes, depending on size, or until lightly golden. Let them cool on the cookie tray before moving to a wire rack. .
