Pastry Dough:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold coconut oil or organic vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup cold vegan "butter" (can replace with more shortening or coconut oil)
  • 2/3 cup ice cold water


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil or organic vegetable shortening softened
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/3 cups broken/chopped sandwich cookies i.e. jojos or oreos


  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup more cookie pieces for topping


Pastry Dough:

  1. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, and salt in the bowl of food processor and pulse. Add "butter" and coconut oil and pulse a few times more until crumbly. Add water and process until the dough comes together, adding a tiny bit more water if necessary until it pulls away from the sides of bowl..


  1. Stir melted coconut oil and almond milk together in the bowl of stand mixer or a medium mixing bowl until smooth. Add salt, vanilla, and cornstarch and stir to combine. Mix in powdered sugar a cup at a time until combined then beat until fluffy. Add cookie pieced and beat just long enough to mix them into filling.


  1. Roll pastry dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle roughly 1/8 inch thick. Cut into smaller rectangles, about 2 1/2 x 5 inch pieces.
  2. Spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon of filling onto the centers of half of the rectangles you've cut and spread to within 1/2 inch from edges, then rub edges with water. Place the other half of the pieces on top of fillings and use a fork or your fingers to crimp the ends together to seal well. Place on a parchment lined baking tray about 1/4 inch apart and place tray in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C). When oven is ready, remove trays from fridge and bake for 10 - 12 minutes until the edges are starting to darken and crisp. Remove tray from oven and cool tarts completely before adding icing.


  1. Whisk the ingredients for the icing in a small bowl until smooth and use a spoon or knife to spread on cooled tarts. Sprinkle with cookie pieces and allow to dry (for at least 30 minutes) before serving.
