Vegan Cut-Out Almond Shortbread Cookies

If you leave these Vegan Almond Shortbread Christmas Cookies on the mantle with a vanilla nut milk, Santa might just make room on the nice list (We know, we know. You’re already on it!)

This is Christmas done right with a recipe that is vegan, gluten free, grain free, and refined sugar-free. It is always great to have a cutout cookie to decorate individually! For cookie cutters, I used a Christmas tree, candy cane, and gingerbread man – but the opportunities are endless. This recipe makes about 15 cookies, depending on size.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 10
Serves: 15 (depending on thickness and size)

Just blend the ingredients
