Saffron Cardamom Cookies – Vegan

This is a delicious and fragrant variation on sugar cookies. I am so happy that they got done in time to use the remaining 10 minutes sunshine to take the pictures.

1 1/4 cup unbleached flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup margarine ( i like earth balance)

pinch of saffron

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Crumple the saffron in a small bowl or large spoon, add warm water and soak a few minutes

Mix margarine and sugar until fluffy – either in the food processor, of just warm up the margarine until its nearly liquid

Add saffron with the water, cardamom, baking powder and flour

Mix well

Scoop the mix on a baking paper and make rolls to put in the fridge to rest and harden for at least 1/2 hour.

If you are as lazy as me, just cut the dough rolls in thin slices, press them flat a bit with your palms. If you want to make shapes, roll the dough and put it back into the fridge between two baking paper sheets before cutting the shapes.

375 degrees for ~ 10 mins

Let them cool well before taking them off the baking paper

    • It depends how long you bake them. Unless you take them out when they are still very light, they will become crunchy. I tend to do half and half to cater for the different texture preferences in our house.
