Craving gingerbread cookies but don’t have time to chill and roll the dough? Make these easy No-Chill Vegan Gingerbread Cookies for holiday cookies in no time!
Hey friends! Can yo believe that Christmas is just a few weeks away? Where did the time go! We’ve had some snow lately and it has been COLD so far this week (-3 early this morning). Baking cookies is perfect for this type of weather, and my day was quiet so I had all day to get some new cookies whipped up!
Since my No-Chill Vegan Sugar Cookies are doing really well right now with the holidays coming up (I also have a chocolate version!), I decided to make a gingerbread cookie version of those. I made a couple changes to that recipe and came up with these No-Chill Vegan Gingerbread Cookies!
Just like my sugar cookies, they are really easy to make and there is no need to chill and roll out the dough. Just roll into a ball, flatten slightly, and bake! It helps to be able to skip some of those steps when you’re tight on time and need to make a batch of cookies quickly.
This batch of cookies is also smallish, so you can double or triple the batch easily if you need to make a bunch. These would also be delicious with icing on top!
Since my kids aren’t big fans of spicy cookies, I decided to use less ginger in these cookies and slightly less molasses. I think these taste awesome this way, but if you like a strong ginger taste, you can add another 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ginger to the recipe. I think my kids will like these with slightly less gingery spice 🙂
These gingerbread cookies don’t rise up quite as much as the sugar cookies do (they are still a flat cookie), but they can be a bit chewy in the middle if you like. If you want a slightly chewy gingerbread cookie, bake for 12 minutes. If you want a crunchy cookie all around, bake for 13-14 minutes.
