  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand-held mixer, beat the vegan butter until peaks form.
  • Add white sugar, vanilla extract and salt, mix until creamy.
  • Add flour and mix until you have a smooth dough.
  • Mix ground cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg in a small bowl. Sprinkle ¾ of the mixture over the dough and mix it lightly using your hands. → Don't completely fold the spices into the dough so that you can still see a beautiful "pattern".
  • Turn the dough onto a work surface and shape it into a 10-inch (25cm) long log. Wrap the log in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
  • Preheat your oven to 390°F (200°C).
  • Mix brown sugar with the remaining spice blend and roll the log in it to fully coat. Slice into ¼-inch (1cm) thick cookies and place on a with parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Bake the cookies for 12 minutes in the preheated oven.
  • Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Freeze cookies for up to 3 months in a freezer bag and thaw single cookies for 30 minutes at room temperature.
