Cooking Time




  • 3/4 cup vegan butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oat milk, plain and unsweetened
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose white flour, spoon and leveled
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4-1 teaspoon matcha (see notes)

For the Icing:

  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon oat milk, plain and unsweetened
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a medium-large bowl, add the vegan butter and granulated sugar. You can use a stand-mixer or hand mixer if preferred. Cream together, then stir in the oat milk and vanilla extract.
  2. In a different bowl, add the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Transfer the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and combine. Use your hands if needed. The dough will be dry, but it should hold together when pressed. Place a large piece of parchment paper on a clean surface and add a small amount of flour. Place the cookie dough on the parchment paper and roll out the dough to approximately ¼ inch thick. Cover and transfer the dough to the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour.
  4. When you’re ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove the cookies from the refrigerator while the oven preheats.
  5. Cut the dough into your desired shape. You should get about 24 cookies, depending on the size of your cookie cutter. Gently place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350°F. Let them cool completely before decorating them with icing.
  7. To prepare the icing: Whisk the icing sugar, oat milk and vanilla extract together in a bowl.
  8. Decorate the cookies as desired. Enjoy!
