A Vegan Christmas: Apple Crumble & Custard Cookies

I love apple crumble & I love cookies, so why not make an apple crumble and custard epic cookie!

These are light, fluffy & soft cookies, and they just melt in your mouth, they do involve a few elements to make them delicious but all the prep is worth it. Trust me!!.
You don’t have to add the custard buttercream if you do not like custard.  They are amazing with or without the buttercream.

Perfect to serve with tea or coffee when you have guests over for the holiday season.
