Vegan butter sandwich cookies

These vegan butter sandwich cookies are the perfect combination between a sugar cookie and a butter cookie filled with jam or cajeta (Mexican caramel). Every bite you take, you feel how they deliciously dissolve in your mouth, and you won’t be able to stop eating them, you will see.

Everything about these vegan butter sandwich cookies

  • Plant-based. These are vegan because they don’t have any animal products. They are made without eggs, no dairy, and with vegetable butter.
  • Texture. As I told you at the beginning of this post, these cookies are the perfect combination between a sugar cookie and a butter cookie. So they fall melt in your mouth, but they keep their shape perfectly while cutting and filling.
  • Flavor. The flavor of these cookies is the best; it is smooth but with caramel notes due to the sugar and the deliciousness of the ground pecans. The best thing is that you can fill them with cajeta (I used vegan cajeta), jam, or melted chocolate.
  • Shape. Make these cookies any shape you want. What’s more, you can even use no cookie cutters and use a knife to cut into squares.

Ingredientes para hacer galletas veganas

  • Flour. Use all-purpose wheat flour.
  • Butter. I use vegan butter, and the brand I like the most for baking is ForA: Butter, but any other works very well.
  • Pecans. Ground pecans. Be careful when you grind them; you don’t want them turned into pecan butter. You are looking at a sand-like texture.
  • Sugar. I used organic cane sugar, but white sugar works too.
  • Vanilla and salt.

Tips para hacer galletas veganas perfectas

  • Don’t overwork the dough. It is ready when all the ingredients are well integrated. The dough, because of all the butter, is a bit fragile but easy to handle.
  • When you spread the dough, do it on top of a piece of parchment paper or a silicone mat. This way, you cut the cookies in the shape you will use, remove what is left around each cookie, lift the paper or mat, and put it on the baking sheet. So easy.
  • When stretching the dough, flour the rolling pin very well, so it does not stick.
  • Cookies will be ready in 15 minutes.
  • Fill them with what you like the most: jam, vegan cajeta, or melted chocolate.
  • When they are cold, sprinkle them with icing sugar

Me encanta lo sencillo de esta receta, pero me pregunto si es posible usar alemendras en lugar de las nueces?
