Ingredient Notes

Here are some ingredient notes, including possible substitutions and places were you can buy them (in Japan).

Maple Sugar – although you can use other granulated sugars, like brown sugar or coconut sugar, I highly recommend you use maple sugar (sold at Kaldi Coffee Farm). That’s what gives these cookies the yummy maple flavor.

Flour – use all-purpose flour if you have it. Since all-purpose flour is not common in Japan, I mix bread flour 強力粉 and cake flour 薄力粉 .

Non-dairy yogurt – my favorite is almond milk yogurt (sold at AEON supermarket). Other types of yogurt will also work.

Vegan Butter – I use Violife’s butter (sold at Aeon, Belc, Peacock). I do not recommend vegan margarine for this recipe, as it has too much water.

How To Make Vegan Maple Sugar Cookies

A detailed recipe is in the recipe card at the bottom of this post, but let me give you a quick overview of the process. It takes about 30 minutes to make these cookies.

Step 1: Make the dough

Add vegan butter (softened to room temperature) and maple sugar to a bowl, and use a hand mixer or egg beater to cream together and combine.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl. Use your hands to combine and form a dough.

Step 2: Cut out cookies

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to be 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) thick. To prevent the dough from sticking, flour the rolling pin and the top of the dough. Using a cookie cutter, cut out the cookies.

Transfer the cookies to a baking tray lined with parchment paper. These cookies won’t spread, so you can place them fairly close to each other.

Tip: When transferring the cookies, use a spatula and gently lift them off the surface and place them on the baking tray. This way, you won’t ruin their shape.

Step 3: Bake

Bake in a preheated oven at 170C/350F for 10 minutes, until the edges just start to brown. Let the cookies cool for 10 minutes on the baking tray, then place them on a cooking rack to cool completely.

Step 4: Glaze with icing

While the cookies are cooling, make the maple icing by mixing together powdered sugar, maple syrup and plant-based milk. Glaze the cookies any way you like: you could drizzle or spread the icing over the entire cookie, or use a piping bag to decorate them.

How many cookies from this recipe?

This is a small batch recipe, so you can get between 10~15 cookies, depending on the size of the cookie cutter. Feel free to double, or even triple, the recipe!
