Christmas is quickly approaching which means lots of fun, festive foods! Last year I started making these Spiced Cut-Out Cookies as my own version of the spekulatius cookies from Aldi.
These cookies are great with frosting but lately I’ve been eating them without frosting along with my morning coffee. So good!
These cookies are vegan, gluten-free, oil-free and refined sugar-free. If you’ve ever tried to bake without some of the key components of traditional cookies, then I’m sure you’ll appreciate just how difficult that is and how much work I had to put in to make these cookies turn out right. With that said, I hope you enjoy this recipe and have lots of fun this holiday season!
Below is my recipe for Spiced Cut-Out Cookies along with a recipe for cashew icing. I’d like to make a quick note about the color of these cookies. These cookies are a deeper brown color than I would have prefered. When I was making this recipe I made my own cashew butter and I accidentally toasted that cashews for a little too long. That’s why the cashew butter is a darker color. Please keep in mind that your cookies will likely be a lighter color if using store-bought cashew butter or lightly toasted cashew butter.
