Samoa cookies, have you heard of them? I discovered them the other day while researching on Pinterest and immediately fell in love. There was only one thing that bothered me and that was the caramel in the middle. Please don’t misunderstand, I am a big fan of delicious caramel. However, I do not like the manufacturing method so completely. How many times have I tried and failed to make healthy sugar-based caramel? Those who know me know that I always conjure up a solution out of the hat and this time it is date caramel. Healthy, easy to make and incredibly delicious.
What are Samoa Cookies? They are cookies, which are built in different layers. The base is a shortbread (or shortbread) topped with caramel, toasted coconut shavings and chocolate. If you’re in the mood for a version without shredded coconut, here are my popular tagalons.
The base of the cookies consists of flour, margarine, raw cane sugar, bourbon vanilla, a pinch of salt and a small sip of plant milk. This is all worked together to form a compact dough, which is also processed further immediately afterwards. Prepare cookie cutters, roll out dough and go. I use corrugated cookie cutters, but really anything works. Round they should be and not too crazy, otherwise it will be a little harder to spread the caramel.
Make vegan cookies yourself
The second layer is date caramel, which I definitely prefer to the classic caramel with sugar. It’s quick to make, wholesome and naturally sweet. On top, add a layer of toasted shredded coconut and dark vegan chocolate. Ready are the fine, vegan cookies my dears. Chocolate, coconut and caramel have always been a very good idea.
