Christmas cookie recipe (Vegan)

Michae Bublé playing in the background, a Santa hat on my head, the smell of freshly baked cookies fills the air. It’s the most wonderful time of the year; CHRISTMAS. With Christmas quickly approaching, I’ve decided to share my recipe for sugar cookies. These are super easy to make and of course, Vegan.

Servings: 15-20

Ingredients

Cookies: 

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup Vegan/vegetable-based butter
  • 3 tbsp non-dairy milk (add more if the dough is flaky)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Frosting:

  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  • Cream butter and sugar until well combined, then add the vanilla extract.
  • Sift the flour in a separate bowl, then add salt and baking soda.
  • Combine the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients by hand until it becomes crumbly. Then, add the milk and roll the dough into a ball.
  • Flour your hands, the rolling pin, cookie cutters and the surface you will be using to roll out your dough.
  • Roll the dough out to ideal thickness and cut out your cookies.
  • Place the cookies on a tray (which is covered with parchment paper) and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Monitor closely.
  • Now for the icing. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix at a low speed. Gradually increase the speed until the mixture is smooth.
  • Sperate the mixture into two bowls. Add a few drops of green food colouring to one bowl and stir.
  • once the cookies are done baking, allow them to cool.
  • Once cool, you can begin decorating.

It’s that simple!
