Ingredients

  • 230 g plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 90 g icing or fine caster sugar
  • 180 g vegan block butter (cold) Stork or Flora Plant Butter are both great
  • 40 g cornflour
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

Melted chocolate for topping

  • 50-100 g vegan dark chocolate chips or buttons see notes
  • 1-2 Tbsp vegan block butter see notes

Instructions

  • To make your cookie dough, simply pop all your ingredients into the food processor and pulse gently until you get crumbs/sand like consistency to your dough.
  • Keep pulsing and it will slowly start coming together into a ball of nice and pliable dough.
  • Alternatively, put all the ingredients in a large bowl and gently mix and knead them using your hands until you get smooth, pliable dough.
  • At this point simply turn it out onto the kitchen counter and divide it into two equal parts which you will then form into round discs.
  • Wrap your dough discs in the wrapping of your choice and pop into the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
  • Once your cookie dough had its time in the fridge, prepare your kitchen counter by dusting it gently with some flour and preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
  • Take one of your dough discs out of the fridge and roll it out gently (approx. 3-4mm thick). Keep another one in the fridge until you’re ready for it.
  • Cut out shapes using cutter of your liking and place on prepared, lined baking tray.
  • Re-roll remaining dough and repeat the process until all used up.
  • Bake cinnamon cookies in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes until they start to crisp up around the edges. They will still be slightly soft but will harden as they cool.
  • Take them out of the oven and leave on the baking tray for couple of minutes to harden a bit and then transfer them onto the cooling rack to cool completely. 

Optional Chocolate Topping

  • Put chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and place it over the pan with gently simmering water (make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn't come to contact with water).
  • Melt both stirring gently until you get smooth and glossy, almost chocolate ganache like topping.
  • Gently spread the chocolate on your biscuits using palette knife and put on the rack for the chocolate to set.

Notes

  • Nutritional information is approximate, per biscuit (without icing or chocolate) and should be treated as a rough guideline only.
  • The amount of biscuits will depend on the cutter you use. 
  • If you'd like to use chocolate topping only on half of your biscuits then use 50g of chocolate and 1 Tbsp of butter. For the entire batch double the quantities. 
  • Chocolate topping as per this recipe has more of a spreadable, ganache like consistency hence suggested use of palette knife to spread it on the biscuits. 
  • Feel free to leave cookies plain or use simple icing instead of chocolate as the one in my Gingerbread Biscuits recipe. 
  • Store your cookies in the airtight container for up to 1 week. 
  • Freezer friendly for up to 2 months.
