Vegan Gingerbread Cookies

Handmade >> How To

 

Chase away the winter chills with this recipe for Vegan Gingerbread Cookies loaded with sugar, spice, and everything nice.

These treats are so delicious even the most discerning Santa will never know that they're dairy and egg-free. If your cravings for spicy treats are on high, after you empty the cookie jar of course, is the bath tub for some warming confections to really heat up your holidays.

For warming soaks that stop the shivers dead in their tracks use our crackling Cinders Bath Bomb or our slightly tipsy Father Christmas (he's had a few nips of brandy). If you're more the bubbly type crumble Santa's Sack or Rocket Reusable Bubble Bar in to your tub for voluptuous spicy bubbles. You nostalgic types needn’t worry either, we brought back your beloved Gingerbread House Bubble Bar to our online-only Retro shop too. With this many warming treats think of the money you'll save on your winter heating bills!
