Vegan Sugar Cookies

Vegan Sugar Cookies Recipe

Christmas sugar cookies are a wonderful holiday treat. I love love love this recipe. Christmas is the one time of year I feel like a kid again, cutting out cookies with holiday shapes, decorating the tree, singing and dancing to the holidays classics. It’s wonderful isn’t it?! I feel like I have been in this kitchen baking for years! Luckily, these easy vegan sugar cookies are fantastic if you have many dozens of cookies to make and decorate. Easy and simple ingredients and straight forward instructions, you could even freeze the dough! I made the icing for these with beets to give it that pretty pink colouring. No fake colouring in my kitchen! What are your favourite Christmas cookies?! Are you doing lots of baking this weekend?
