Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line a baking tray with baking paper or spray with non-stick spray.

Beat margarine and sugar together until pale in colour (2-3 minutes). Add soy milk and mix, then add flour, baking powder and salt. The mixture should be sticky enough to roll into balls but without sticking to your fingers. If the mixture is too wet add a little more flour.

Roll into small balls (slightly larger than a walnut) and then roll in the cinnamon sugar to coat completely. Place on a baking tray about 5 cm apart and bake for 8-10 minutes until slightly cracked, but not brown.

Remove from the oven and leave to sit to cool before removing from tray.
