My Christmas light cookies are gluten and dairy free (vegan too) and are great fun to make! The cookies have a shortbread base filled with dairy free white chocolate chips and are topped with white icing and decorated with black icing and dairy free multicoloured chocolates to look like Christmas lights. If you do make this recipe I’d love to see, don’t forget to tag me in your photos over on social media.
Frequently asked questions
Which butter do you use for the shortbread?
For this recipe (and the majority of my baking) I use the Stork ‘perfect for baking’ 250g gold packet butter which is naturally dairy free and available in most major UK supermarkets. Note: This is the only Stork butter that doesn’t contain milk so be careful to pick up the right packet.
How long will they last?
These cookies will last in an airtight container for up to 4 days but are always best served on the day you make them.
Which dairy free chocolate chips do you use for the biscuits?
For this recipe I use the Sainsbury’s Free From white chocolate chips however you could use any kind of dairy free chocolate chips (white, milk or dark!) or you could make the shortbread without.
Which dairy free chocolate do you use the ‘Christmas Lights’?
For this recipe I use the Clarana Vegan Colourful Chocolate Beans (which are also gluten free). I usually purchase these from the Vegan Kind Supermarket.
Which black icing do you use?
Any black icing pen will work, you want something with a thin top so you can draw the black lines accurately, click here for the icing pen I use from Amazon.
