Maple Spice cookies

I fancied something maple flavoured today so whipped these up. This recipe made 7 cookies (if I make too many I eat them all!) but I strongly recommend scaling it up!


30g vegan margarine (vitalite)
30g sugar
3 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

100g SR flour
1tsp mixed spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
zest of 1/2 lemon (optional)

Preheat the oven to 180’C and line or grease a baking tray.
Heat the margarine, sugar, maple syrup and vanilla extractin a saucepan over a low heat until the sugar is dissolved and margarine melted.
Allow this to cool for a few minutes while combining the flour, spices and salt in a bowl.
Make a well in the centre and poor in the mixture from the saucepan.
Mix together into a soft dough.
Take walnut sized balls of the mixture, roll into balls and flatten.

Place on the baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden.
Cool on a wire rack and enjoy.
