For the icing

  • 2 tbsp. vegan butter room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp. almond milk
  • red sprinkles to decorate


  • Start by making orange hazelnut butter, check out instructions here. You can also use any other nut butter you like. Simple almond butter works great.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter, nut butter, and brown sugar.
  • Add the egg and molasses and beat until well combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients (flour through spices) and mix until just combined.
  • Roll the dough into a large ball, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least two hours.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to a ¼-inch thickness.
  • Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.

  • Place the cookies 1 inch apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool completely.
  • For the icing, beat the butter using a handheld mixer. Add in the powdered sugar and mix until well combined. Add in the vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of almond milk and continue mixing until smooth. Only add in the second tablespoon of almond milk if your icing is not pliable. Transfer half of the icing to a piping bag or plastic zip bag and cut a small piece of the corner to create a tip. Decorate cookies with icing and sprinkles. Place them in the fridge for 30 minutes until the icing hardens- Enjoy!
