You must try these passion fruit cookies. They are light and airy yet have a crunchy texture because of the real passion fruit pulp they contain.
Perfect for Sunday afternoon get-together with friends, dunk into coffee or tea or simply enjoyed whenever.
These cookies are vegan, nut-free and “oh so delicious.”
Here is the recipe:
Yield: about 12- 16 cookies
160 grams of powder sugar + 4 tablespoons for dusting
60 grams vegan butter (I used Violife)
Pulp of 6 medium sized passion fruits
225 grams all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Grease two cookie sheets with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350F/180C.
Use a handheld mixer or stand mixer, whisk the vegan butter with the powder sugar until smooth.
Add the passion fruit pulp and whisk until combined.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and baking powder and sea salt until well combined.
Pour the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and combine to a smooth batter.
If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour, if too dry add a tablespoon of vegan milk.
Use an ice cream scooper and scoop batter out and roll it into a ball using your hands, then roll it in the extra powder sugar, set aside.
Continue with the remaining dough.
Let the cookies set for a few minutes and roll again into the powder sugar and place them into the cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes, take out and leave completely to cool.
