4-Ingredient Salty Vegan Cookie
So, today we are going to make some salty vegan cookie. For this, we will l need only 4 ingredients. Let’s make ourselves some delicious snacks, ’cause we deserve it 😉
- 2 cups of flour
- 250 mg of vegan butter
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 1 flax egg
Let’s get cooking
First, we will make our flax egg. For which, we will need 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed and to table 3 tablespoons of warm water. We’ll put it to set until it has sticky consistency. It will replace our egg. While we are waiting for egg to form, we’ll melt our vegan butter on the stove in on low-medium heat. Once it’s ready, we can prepare our cookies. So, in a mixing bowl, sift your flour. I always sift my flour. Throw 2 tsp salt in the flower and mix it really well. You add your butter and egg and mix until it’s turns into dough consistency. Then you’ll knead your dough. When ready, it should be rested in refrigerator for 20 minutes. If you don’t refrigerate it, it will be a little bit difficult to get off of the counter when you flatten the dough.
I refrigerated the dough for 20 minutes and I started to flatten on the counter top. However, it didn’t work out because it was too dry. I use some parchment paper to help the dough stay together. Then, you can start to cut your cookies into a desirable forms and shapes. Once you did that, carefully, transfer the cookies into a baking tray so you can bake it at 250 C for 12 to 15 minutes. Keep an eye on the cookies, they can cook and burn in a second. I know, because I burnt the second batch. LOL. Time actually can vary so please keep an eye on the cookies in the oven.
To even spice it up the cookie you can add some sesame seed and black sesame seed on top of it. In the real recipe they use some egg yolk to cover the top of the cookie and foot. Seeds would stick to the cookie easily. It was easier for them but as we are vegans and we are against cruelty, we will do some other types of cooking tricks *wink-wink. So, when you cut and put your cookies on a baking tray you can sprinkle the seeds on top of the cookie and lightly press the seeds into the cookie. Because it’s so soft, it won’t lose its shape. You can also knead sesame seeds into the cookie dough. However, I think it’s it looks much better when seed are only on top. So, it’s a choice of yours, it delicious anyways. Put it in the oven cook it for until cooked.
I used rye flour. When you use all purpose flour it will be yellow white and it will be easier for you to understand if it’s cooked or not. So, once it’s out of the oven let it cool for 15 minutes and enjoy for the rest of your day.
