  • 170g g Vegan Butter
  • ¼ cup Agave Syrup (or Maple Syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1⅔ cups Plain Flour
  • pinch Salt
  • ¼ cup Jam or your own flavour choice!
  • ¼ cup Confectionary Sugar sieved


  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and syrup until creamy.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients (except for the jam and icing sugar) and beat until you have a crumbly dough. It will look like crumbly peas when beating, but it will come together as a dough.
  • Form dough into a ball, wrap in clingfilm and chill for at least a couple of hours.
  • Preheat oven to 170c.
  • Line two baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
  • Separate your dough into two balls. Clingfilm one ball and return to the fridge.
  • Roll out the other ball on a floured work surface, until it's about ½cm thick.
  • Using your Linzer Cookie Cutters, cut out equal amounts of top and bottom cookies. Place on baking sheet.

  • Bake for 8 minutes or until very pale golden. Let cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet, then let cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • Place half a teaspoonful of jam onto the bottom cookies.
