In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt, and spices.
In a different bowl, mix the vegan butter and muscovado until it’s thoroughly combined. Then, add the molasses, applesauce, and vanilla and mix again.
Finally, combine both mixtures with a spatula until it forms a ball of dough.
Cover with plastic wrap and let rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Roll out the dough and cut out the cookies using cookie cutters of your favorite shapes.
Bake at 350F for 10 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Allow the cookies to cool down and decorate however you like. 🙂
