Ingredients 

Chocolate Cookies

  • ¼ cup vegan butter
  • ½ cup+ 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 flax egg (1 Tablespoon ground flax mixed with 3 Tablespoons water, left to sit 5 minutes)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Vanilla Buttercream Filling

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F and make the flax egg.
  • First, make the chocolate cookies. Add the vegan butter and powdered sugar to a bowl and cream together until fluffy. Then, add in the flax egg and vanilla and mix together.
  • Next, add in the all-purpose flour, sifted cocoa powder, and salt. Then, mix together into a thick chocolate cookie dough. If the dough is too sticky, add it to the fridge to chill and firm up for 10-15 minutes.
  • Roll the dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper until about ½ inches thick in height. Make sure not to roll the dough out too thin or it will be hard to cut out shapes.
  • Next, use a cookie cutter to cut out an even amount of top and bottom cookies (about 24 total). Each time you cut out cookies, form the scraps into a ball and roll out again until no dough is left.
  • Add the cookies to a lightly greased baking sheet or a baking sheet covered in parchment paper and bake for 10-11 minutes until the cookies are cooked through.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and let cool on the baking tray for another 5 minutes. Then, move the cookies to a wire cooling rack to cool to room temperature.
  • While the cookies are cooling, make the vanilla buttercream filling.
  • Add the vegan butter to a large mixing bowl and whip until fluffy. Then, gradually add in the powdered sugar and whip together until you have a fluffy white frosting.
  • Next, add in the vanilla bean paste and whip it into the frosting for another 30 seconds until it mixed throughout.
  • Add the frosting to a piping bag and pipe onto ½ of the chocolate cookies. Then, add the remaining ½ of chocolate cookies on top to sandwich together. Serve & enjoy!

Notes

  • Cookies can be stored in a closed container in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month. Just let them defrost at room temperature for 30 minutes before enjoying!
  • Feel free to experiment with the flavor of the filling. While I made a simple vanilla frosting, you can try more flavors.
