THE BEST VEGAN SUGAR COOKIES


ADVERTISEMENT

Soft, vegan sugar cookies with crispy edges for all your holiday needs. Have fun with different cookie cutters easy icing and sprinkles of course.
After much trial and error I finally have the perfect recipe for soft cut out vegan sugar cookies.  Seriously these are the cookies of my dreams and I think you will love them.

They are easy to make and roll out a little trick I learned is to roll the dough onto parchment paper before chilling in the refrigerator this way the cookie dough only needs to chill for about an hour before you can cut and bake and you don’t have to roll out cookie dough that is crumbling everywhere.

How To Make Perfect Vegan Sugar Cookies:


First make the dough, using just 1 bowl and either a standing mixer with the paddle attachment or a hand mixer your cookie dough should be similar to the texture of play dough it will be rather crumbly in the bowl, but not dry and it should stick together when you use your hands to roll it into a ball. Once the dough is made break it into two balls place one of the dough onto parchment paper on a hard surface.

Roll the dough out about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle a little flour on top so the dough doesn’t stick to your rolling pin.

Place another piece of parchment paper on top of the first rolled dough.

Repeat with the second ball of dough I usually do this right on top of the first rolled dough place another piece of parchment paper on top and carefully transfer the rolled dough to the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour.

Remove the dough from the fridge cut into desired shapes and bake for 8-10 minutes they will look underdone but firm up considerably as they cool this is the key to soft sugar cookies if you want them crispy you could roll the dough thinner and cook them a bit longer but I prefer them softer.

They will look like this when they come out of the oven see how they don’t puff up a bunch or spread like some sugar cookie recipes do? Cookie perfection.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO DECORATE VEGAN SUGAR COOKIES?

So let me tell you a little secret I am not a natural decorator of sweets I can bake but the actual decorating of cookies or cakes is not really my thing so I watched several videos and almost had a panic attack while decorating the cookies for these photos. For real it took me hours…

The trick is to outline the cookies first with a thicker icing then flood the inside with a thinner icing and carefully spread it to all the corners of the cookie.

I used Wilton Bags and decorating tips for this which I highly recommend for all your cookie and cake decorating needs.

After icing simply grab some food coloring if desired sprinkles of choice and have fun my family has a tradition of making these cookies and we usually just slap on some icing and have fun decorating. They don’t usually look quite so pretty but they always taste amazing.

WHAT FOOD COLORING IS VEGAN?

Well this is quite a complicated topic I have done a lot of research on this online watkins brand is for sure vegan from what I can tell several of Wilton brand are vegan such as the gel based color I found a few at my local craft store, and carefully read the ingredients before buying if you don’t want to use food coloring you can also make your own or just go with white frosting.
