I can hear the angels sing when I taste my first Christmas Cookies this winter. Those jam filled, short pastry cookies do not only look cute they are super easy to make.
As I mentioned those Easy vegan Christmas Cookies everyone can make require less than 8 ingredients and they are for sure a classic that everyone from young to old likes. And if you a re looking for an even easier recipe make sure you check out my Protein Christmas Balls!
Extra tip: If you want to give your cookies and extra nutritional boost you can add 1-2 tsp Chia seed to the jam before placing it between the cookies.
If you have time I recommend making these Easy Vegan Christmas Cookies everyone can make while you are reading this. Otherwise (you better come up with a good excuse), you can save the picture below to your Pinterest Board and find the recipe later before Christmas 🙂 You can find me under my name Vanillacrunnch if you are interested in seeing all my Pinterest boards for inspiration.
I am looking forward to seeing your cookie creations on Instagram (Tag me @vanillacrunnch ) or you can use the hashtag #bakingwithvanillacrunnch or and leave a comment here and put a smile on my face.
