Tips for baking vegan cookies

  • Always soften the vegan butters by leaving them on the countertop. They will soften within 10 minutes. Never microwave them because it will melt unevenly.
  • Store the vegan cookies in the refrigerator whenever possible. The vegan butters and dairy used in them are more stable when refrigerated
  • These cookies can also be gifted as edible gifts. I love making a huge basket of various cookies before gifting them
  • Always choose the sugars suggested in the recipe. If it says light brown sugar, use that instead of granulated sugar. The reason is that the baker knows how to get the right sweetness. I see people use different sugars and wonder why their cookies didn’t taste good.
  • Whenever possible, “fold” in the dough ingredients as opposed to whisking it or using mixers. They reason is that the folding process will make the dough more airy. Check out the Baker’s Almanac on the best folding techniques.

Here are my favorite shortbread cookies, giant cookies, snowball cookies, crinkle cookies and giant cookies!

The snowball cookie happens to be my family’s favorite! Which one is your favorite?
