Vegan Chanukah Star Spelt Cookies

Wow, Chanukah’s coming early this year! It actually kind of snuck up on me and I don’t have a new truly new recipe to share with you….but I do have an updated version of last years Chanukah Cookies!

Today’s new and improved  Vegan Chanukah Star Spelt Cookies are a softer and more melt-in-your-mouth-ish version of last year’s recipe. They use spelt flour, so they are not gluten-free, but spelt is a low-gluten grain which personally sits well with me (unlike wheat).

I’ve had the same Jewish star cookie cutter for years (which is what I used in this recipe) but next  year I’m definitely upgrading to this full set!

  1. I have questions : Do you melt the vegan butter? And also, it says 1 tsp of ground flax for 3 tbsp of water, I usually see 1 tbsp ground flax for 3 tbsp of water…. I just want to make sure it is not a typo. Thanks!
