classic shortbread made with vegan butter

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all pupose flour
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl using a hand mixer blend together the vegan butter and the granulated sugar. Alternatively use a stand mixer with the paddle attached.
  • Add in the scraped vanilla seed and mix well.
  • Blend in the flour, just until mixed. If you need to add a little more vegan butter do so a tablespoon at a time
  • Lightly flour your counter and roll out the dough to about 1/2″ thick.
  • Cut out the cookies and remove them to the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 18 minutes, rotating the trays halfway through baking.
  • Cool on a wire rack.


The vanilla bean adds a delightful flavor to the cookie but if you don’t have a vanilla bean it’s not vital to the cookie
