These shortbread cookies are so easy to make and so delicious. They also only require a few ingredients and are a perfect treat to make with your kids!


  • 1 cup vegan butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour (sifted)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 3 tbsp sprinkles


  • Preheat your oven to 350F.
  • Using either an electric mixer or stand mixer cream together the butter and sugar. You can also do this by hand by using a spoon.
  • Then add in the vanilla, flour and sprinkles.
  • Using the electric mixer or stand mixer, mix together until pea sized crumbles have formed. You can do this by hand using a fork.
  • Empty the dough out and gently knead with your hands until dough comes together. If you are having trouble with it coming together add in 1/2 tsp of vegan butter.
  • Using two sheets of parchment paper roll the dough in between them. I tried without parchment paper and it didn’t work.
  • Roll it to about 1/2 inch thickness. I prefer these cookies to be on the thicker side.
  • Cut out your cookies and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Take the scraps of dough, work back into a ball and repeat.
  • Bake the cookies for 12-13 minutes. They should be lightly golden on the bottom.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes before eating.
