I looove sugar cookies. The recipe is so simple,  they bake quickly, and you can decorate to your hearts content! I got this recipe from Chole Coscarelli’s book Chole’s Vegan  Desserts. The only tweak I made was adding vanilla to the icing. If you have a food processor this is amazingly easy. I’d never made cookie dough in a processor before, now I’ll never do it by hand again!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all propose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup vegan margarine
  • 3-4 Tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cookie Icing : This makes a lot so maybe half it unless you're making a lot of cookies
  • 1/3 cup vegan margarine
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 4-5 Tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Food coloring (optional)

Method

Step 1

Preheat over to 350°

Step 2

In food processor, combine flour, sugar, and baking soda. Add margarine, 3 Tablesppons water, and vanilla. Pulse until doughy and add more water if needed.

Step 3

Stick the dough in the fridge for 5-10 minutes while you dust a work surface with flour. Roll out half the dough about 1/4 inch thick and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter. Leave a good amount of space between cookies (on a splat sheet or backing parchment paper) I didn't leave room and some baked into each other.

Step 4

Bake 10-12 minutes or until the edges brown. I turned my pans around after 5 minutes and the larger pan took almost 20 minutes to bake...I made them a little thick.

Step 5

You can ice the cookies after they are completely cooled.

Step 6

For the icing: Combine all ingredients adding the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Use a food processor or hand mixer whisk
