  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2-4 tablespoons applesauce, or plant-based milk

For rolling


  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 375F/190C. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars until creamy. Whisk in the vanilla extract, cream of tartar, baking soda, and cinnamon, then sift in the flour. Add applesauce or milk as needed (one tablespoon at a time) and mix until a firm dough forms. Roll the dough into balls.
