As we’ve only just decorated biscuits for Halloween we decided to bake a different kind  of treat for Bonfire Night.  The last time I made Italian Vanilla Christmas Cookies I was still eating dairy so I’ve been planning to “vegan-ise” this recipe ready for Christmas.  As a practice, we have made Italian Vegan Vanilla Firework Cookies ready for Guy Fawkes night.  Read on for the recipe:

Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4 (350F/180C).


Grease 2 baking trays.

 Mix together all the dry ingredients.


Create a hole in the centre and add the wet ingredients.


Mix well until a dough forms (if mixture is too dry add milk, if too wet add flour).


Knead the dough and roll out the balls (even young kids love this part).


Place dough balls spaced apart on the greased baking trays.


Bake for 8-12 minutes until golden.


Leave to cool.


For the Topping

 Mix together icing sugar as per instructions (I made up using 8oz of icing sugar but would recommend you double this).


Add black food colour.


Once the icing is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon ice each cookie.


Add the firework sprinkles.
