¼ cup unsweetened vanilla oat milk (or plant-milk of choice)
1 tbsp flaxseed meal
1/3 cup dairy-free butter, at room temperature
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp almond extract
1½ cup gluten-free 1-to-1 flour
½ tsp Suncore Foods® Rose Salt
1½ tsp Suncore Foods® Premium Midori Jade Matcha Supercolor Powder
½ cup dairy-free butter, at room temperature
½ tsp cream of tartar
1½ - 2 cups powdered sugar
½ tsp Suncore Foods® Pink Pitaya Supercolor Powder
1/3 cup Suncore Foods® Rose Petals Superbloom
1. Gluten-free Cookies — Combine milk and flaxseed meal and set aside for 5 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy and well combined. Mix in almond extract plus milk-flax mixture. Fold in flour, salt and Matcha Supercolor Powder and form a dough ball. The dough will be soft. Tightly wrap the dough in cling film and refrigerate for minimum 2 hours up to overnight. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 deg. F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Cut the dough into 2 portions and work with 1 portion at a time, while keeping the remaining dough refrigerated. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to approximately ¼ inch thick. Using cookie cutters, cut dough and place cookies on the baking tray. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool down completely before adding buttercream.
2. Rose Buttercream — Buttercream: Using an electric beater, cream butter for 2-3 minutes. Mix in cream of tartar and add sugar, 1 cup at a time, until well combined. For a thicker buttercream, use more sugar and for a thinner buttercream use less sugar or add plant-milk, 1 tsp at a time, until you’re happy with the consistency. Mix in Pink Pitaya Supercolor Powder and continue to beat for a few seconds until well combined. Using a spatula, fold in Rose Petals Superbloom. Transfer buttercream to a piping bag and using large piping tips (1A, 1M, etc.) add buttercream to cookies as per preference. Sandwich the buttercream by placing another cookie over it and gently pressing it down.
