These vegan biscuits are so good, that you wouldn’t even be able to tell they are dairy and egg free. The have the same taste and texture, actually I should say the same texture but way better tasting.
BBC Children In Need is a charity for disabled children in the UK. A televised telethon is held in November each year ( usually the middle Friday of the month) on BBC1 and BBC2 from about 7pm-2am with Pudsey Bear the charity mascot.

My son had made some Pudsey Bear cookies last week for his school assignment, using a normal dairy and egg recipe which got me thinking on how I could change this recipe to make it vegan friendly, or should I say Me friendly.
So with a little creative thinking and alternatives I know work best for egg replacements like my trusty vegan buttermilk and baking soda combo. Well in short, it worked brilliantly to the point that the whole family think they actually taste better than regular biscuits.
There is definitely something satisfying about making a recipe work first time without any adjustments or tweaks. This was one of those times, I’m so glad that I don’t loose out to great treats being vegan.
These biscuits were made by my kids, they did the icing which I love about them, they are not perfectly decorated but then gives it the ultimate Children in need feel to them. Who wants perfectly decorated biscuits anyway?

280g Caster Sugar

100ml Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 Tsp Vinegar

Roll out 1/2 of the dough to a few millimetres thick and using a cookie cutter cut out biscuits.
Bake the biscuits for 10-11 minutes at 170c, remove from the oven and allow to cool.
