Vegan Sugar Cookies - Hell Yeah It's Vegan!
This recipe is adapted from one that appears in an old Iowa church cookbook called World’s Best Sugar Cookies. Iowan church ladies are known to wax hyperbolic about plenty of things — recipes in these cookbooks for “green salad,” for instance, typically involve neon-hued Jello and no vegetables of any kind. But these cookies are the Real Deal. These are the cookies I helped my mother decorate every Christmas while I was a kid, so they’re really the gold-standard by which I judge all other cut-out cookies. They are tender and flavorful, so unlike the many other sugar cookies I’ve sampled over the years, which by and large have been hard and dry, ultra-sweet or flour-flavored. They’re great fresh, but I actually like them even more after they’ve been sitting in an air-tight container for a day or two, the cookies softening just slightly with the icing’s moisture. Growing up, we always decorated these cookies with vanilla icing, but I’ve found that adding a little almond extract really complements the rich sweetness of the cookies. 5.0 from 2 reviews Print Vegan Sugar Cookies Prep time: 3 hours Cook time: 1 hour Total time: 4 hours Serves: a lot!
