{Saint Valentine’s oil cookies}

Prep time: 30 min

Cooking time: 8-10

Yield: 16 giant cookies (7 cm)


    Cookie dough:

    • 100 g vegetable oil (I used sunflower)
    • 100 g confectioners’ sugar
    • 1 egg, medium size
    • 1 tbs vanilla paste
    • 250 g flour
    • 1 level tbs baking powder
    • 1 pich of salt

    Chocolate filling, recipe here. (For a non dairy version, use no milk chocolate, and vegetable shortening)

Para decorar:

  • stamps (clear ones will not work)
  • brown edible food coloring (paste)


  1. Preheat ove to 350ºF (180ºC). In a medium mixing-bowl, mix together all ingredients to form a ball.
  2. Divide the dough in two or three, and gather each portion into a slightly flattened ball.
    Working with one ball of dough at a time, roll it out between two baking papers to a thickness of maximum 0,3 cm
  3. Cut out the cookies using a cookie cutter of your choice, discard the and place the paper parchment with the cookies on a baking tray
  4. To decorate the cookies, before baking them you might use a stamp to stamp any design of your choice on your cookie dough, using edible ink. To get the edible ink on the stamp, there are several techniques: using a sponge, using a small paint brush, using an edible pen, and finally my favorite, using an uninked ink pad. I highly recommend make a few tests on a sheet of paper before printing on the cookies. Press gently on each cookie, and re-ink before stamping each cookie
  5. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, and let cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container


  • You might use cinnamon instead of vanilla, but it is importante to use some kind of flavour, because these cookies will be missing the butter flavour from other cookies
