Dairy Free Sugar Cut Out Cookies

Sugar Cut Out Cookies by My Wise Mom

Ingredients

Cookies

  • 3 cups flour (all purpose or white, unbleached)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional based on butter used)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup Earth Balance vegan sticks, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Dairy-free Sugar Cookie Frosting

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons almond (or other non-dairy) milk

Instructions

    Cookies

    1. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. (If you are using a butter that already contains salt, skip the added salt. If there is not salt, add the salt to the mixture.)
    2. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs one by one and the vanilla. Mix until a batter forms.
    3. Fold the flour mixture into the batter and beat until a smooth dough forms.
    4. Divide the dough in half and wrap in cling wrap. Refriderate for at least 1 hour.
    5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    6. Lightly flour your surface. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch. Continue to flip the dough as you roll it to ensure it does not stick to the surface. Use cookie cutters and transfer cookies to a baking sheet.
    7. Place baking sheets with unbaked cookies in the fridge and let them chill for 10 minutes to ensure they do not spread in the oven.
    8. Bake for 8-9 minutes, until edges start turning brown.
    9. Remove pan and let cookies cool on the sheet for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack. Once completely cool, frost.

    Frosting

    1. Mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 2 tablespoons almond (or other non-dairy) milk.
    2. Add more milk, a teaspoon at a time, until you get the consistency you like.
