Vegan Biscoff Cookie Sandwiches

Hey beaut's!

It's veganuary! The perfect time to bake my very first vegan recipe wouldn't you say?? I'm not actually Vegan myself but I definitely want to try/share a lot more Vegan recipes on my blog, this time around I've actually used a recipe from Cupcake Jemma as inspiration as I need to play around with my own Vegan recipes, but these cookie sandwiches turned out so well and where delicious I just had to share them! I'm actually intolerant to eggs and wanting to cut down on dairy so Vegan bakes and cakes are definitely the way forward for me from now on!
What You Will Need For the Cookies 
100g Caster Sugar
100g Light Brown Sugar 
120g Sunflower Oil or Vegetable Oil, I used Vegetable!
75g Water 
1 tsp Vanilla Extract 
300g Plain Flour 
3/4 tsp Bicarb 
1 tsp Baking Powder 
1/2 tsp Salt 

What You Will Need For The Biscoff Icing + Decoration
75g Dairy Free Spread 
75g Shortening, I Used TREX
400g Icing Sugar 
50g Biscoff Spread + Extra for Decorating
2 Large Bars Of Dark Chocolate
A Couple Of Biscoff Biscuits To Crush
How To - The Cookies
* The cookies are so easy to make but there are a few steps involved. In a bowl, whack all of your cookie ingredients in and mix until a smooth dough appears, this part literally takes seconds and no fancy mixers are needed I just used a good old wooden spoon. 
* Once everything is combined you need to cover/wrap your dough in cling film and pop it in the fridge to chill ideally overnight or for a few hours minimum.
* Once the dough has chilled roll it into small balls trying to keep them the same size, once you've rolled all the dough into balls pop them into the freezer for 10 mins, this just stops the cookies spreading out too much when their in the oven. Whilst the cookie dough is in freezer pre-heat your oven to 170 or gas mark 4. 
* Cook the cookies for around 12-13 mins or until your cookies have a turned a golden colour.

How To - Biscoff Icing
* In a large bowl, beat the dairy free spread and TREX together until it becomes pale and super whippy, then start adding the icing sugar slowly to avoid the dreaded icing sugar cloud and mix until combined. 
* Then whack in the Biscoff spread and mix well throughout the icing, as usual if the icing becomes too stiff then pop in some dairy free milk like soya or almond until you get your desired constancy. 
* Once the cookies are completely cool and the icing is mixed, match up your cookies in pairs and pipe a ring of icing all around the bottom of one cookie leaving the centre empty, then pop a blob of Biscoff spread in the centre and sandwich together with another cookie!
* Once all your cookies are sandwiched together, melt some dark chocolate and dip one end of the cookie sandwich into the chocolate and finish off by sprinkling some broken up Biscoff biscuits onto the dark chocolate, then leave to set if your patient he he!
Honestly these are divine, my boyfriend couldn't believe the icing or 'buttercream' was completely dairy free, it's so tasty! What I will say is that they are quite sickly and half of one if plenty for me but if you have a mega sweet tooth your going to love these! Vegan or not you have to give these a whirl!
