6-ingredient Vegan Thumbprint Cookies ♥
Today we will prepare some delicious 6-ingredient Vegan Thumbprint Cookies. They are super simple to prepare, they require very few ingredients, they are super crunchy and oh, they melt in your mouth, you are going to love them!
Is margarine vegan?
A large percentage of the margarines on the market are vegan, just make sure that the list of ingredients that comes on the package does not contain any dairy.
Can I substitute the margarine?
For sure! If you find any vegan butter that you like, substitute it without problem. Or if you want to use coconut oil, just use it solid (not melted). And if the place where you live is very hot, store it in the fridge so that when you need it, it’s solid.
Can I substitute the almond flour?
Almond flour can be substituted for ground almonds. Just roast the almonds (if they are raw) and grind them up in a blender until you get a fine powder (keep an eye on them because if you blend them for a long time they will turn into almond butter). You can also substitute the almonds for any other type of nut (pecans, peanuts, hazelnuts, etc.).
Can I use any jam to make these vegan thumbprint cookies?
Sure, use your favorite type of jam.
How should I store these vegan thumbprint cookies?
As a personal suggestion (it's my favorite thing to do), store the cookies in an airtight container and pop it in the fridge. This will keep them crispy longer.
What do I do if my cookies have softened and and want to make them crispy again?
If the cookies have softened, it means that they have absorbed moisture from the atmosphere (they were left uncovered for a long time, the temperatura is a little high, the place where you live is very humid, etc.). So, to return to their previous state they have to lose that moisture, which means that you only need to pop them in the preheated oven (175 ° C) for a couple of minutes (usually 2-3 minutes), and they will be like freshly baked. Just let them cool to finish hardening.
Remember these important points when making vegan thumbprint cookies:
1. If you have a scale, weigh the ingredients instead of measuring them with cups and tablespoons. This is to be as accurate as possible.
2. Do not over-mix the cookie dough, as soon as the ingredients are integrated, stop mixing.
3. When you take the cookies out of the oven, let them cool on the tray for 10 minutes before moving them.
