Vegan Halloween Pinwheel Cookies

It’s Halloween! So I decided to make these adorable cookies to celebrate the holiday! 🥳


No they're not simple to make, but they are pretty tasty and would be a big hit at a Halloween party!







Ingredients:

2 tbsp ground flaxseeds

4 tbsp warm water

1 c vegan butter, softened

2 c granulated sugar

1/2 c brown sugar, packed

1 tbsp vanilla extract

3 3/4 c flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp salt

1/4 c coco powder


Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the ground flaxseeds and warm water, and set aside to gel up

  2. In a stand mixer or mixing bowl, cream the vegan butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together

  3. Once it’s a smooth texture, add in the flaxseed eggs and mix until well combined

  4. Add in the vanilla and mix until well combined

  5. Stop the mixer, and add the flour, baking powder, and salt

  6. Mix until the dough is just combined (it might look a little dry, but if the dough sticks together when you press it, it’s a good consistency)

  7. Divide the dough in half, keeping one half in the mixing bowl

  8. Add 1/4 c coco powder to the dough in the mixing bowl and mix until well combined

  9. Optional: add some food coloring to the vanilla cookie to make it more halloween festive

  10. Half the vanilla and chocolate doughs, place it on wax paper, and roll it out into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle

  11. Repeat step 10 with the rest of the dough

  12. Chill the dough for 30 minutes

  13. Take the doughs out, let them sit for a few minutes, then stack one chocolate rectangle on top of one of the vanilla rectangles

  14. Using the wax paper, roll the doughs long wise (like if you were folding the rectangle hot dog style) until you reach the end

  15. Use the wax paper to cover the log of dough and chill it for 2 hours or freeze it for 1 hour

  16. Lightly grease your baking sheets and heat your oven to 350 degrees F

  17. Once your dough is thoroughly chilled, slice your log into 1/4 inch thick and lay them down on the baking sheet

  18. Optional: pour some halloween sprinkles on a plate and roll the edges of the cookies until they’re coated

  19. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until you can smell the cookies (they might still feel a little soft, but pull them out anyways because they’ll harden a little more as they cool

  20. Let them cool for about 5 minutes and then transfer into an airtight container
