  • 100g Caster sugar
  • 200g softened margarine/dairy-free spread
  • 300g all-purpose/cake flour
  • Icing sugar x 500g
  • Food colour of choice.


1.Using your hands, or a mixer with the paddle/beater attachment fitted, slowly mix the ingredients together until the dairy-free spread is rubbed into the mix (as you would for scones).

2. Once the mixture looks like yellow sand, you can mix slightly faster/more until the dough comes together in a cohesive ball.

3. Stop mixing as soon as it comes together as overmixing will result in a tough, hard cookie.

4. Wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for 30-60 min.

5. Remove dough from chiller and roll on a floured surface (using corn flour) to the desired thickness ( I suggest 5-10mm).

6. Cut out your shapes and arrange on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

7. (optional) Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or granulated sugar before baking.

8. Bake at 175C for 8-10 minutes (time will depend on thickness of dough) or until lightly golden brown. (the cookie will firm up as it cools down).

9. Ice/decorate as you like.

10. Eat all the cookies.
