I have the best vegan holiday sugar cookie recipe ever. This has been in my family for decades. My vegetarian mother-in-law made them for us last year and she said she was very very impressed. Anyway, I really want to share the recipe, so I'm going to post it. Take these cookies out of the oven before they look done because they continue to bake for a bit once out of the oven. They freeze really well! I love pulling them out all month for a tasty treat.

Holiday Sugar Cookies

These are impressive, festive, beautiful cookies that will liven up any holiday party. Let your kids spread the frosting and shake on the sprinkles. They’re almost as much fun to make as they are to eat!

Cookie Dough:
¾ cup vegan margarine
1 cup vegan sugar
Egg replacer for 2 eggs
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2½ cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

Frosting:
3 tablespoons margarine
Dash of salt
½ teaspoon vanilla
1½ cups powdered sugar
Nondairy milk

Vegan sprinkles for decorating


In a mixing bowl, cream margarine and sugar together. Blend in egg replacer and vanilla. Add sifted flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine to form a dough. Cover with plastic wrap and chill about 1-2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Roll dough to desired thickness, approximately ⅛-¼ inch thick, and use cookie cutters to form shapes.

Place cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just starting to brown. Cool on racks.

Once cookies are cooled, beat the frosting ingredients in a medium bowl until frosting is fluffy. Add enough milk to reach your desired frosting consistency. Spread frosting on cooled cookies. Decorate with sprinkles or colored sugar.

Variations:
This recipe doubles and triples easily.

Instead of rolling out the dough and cutting shapes, you can roll the dough into a log, chill, then cut rounds and bake, frost, and sprinkle. Very simple and delicious!
