Vegan Sugar Cookies

So I know, these are conspicuously Christmas colored and it’s January, but what can I say, I got behind on blogging over the holidays! But here’s the thing, these tasty sugar cookies can be decorated for any holiday, say Valentine’s Day, or Chinese New Year, or just roll them in cinnamon/sugar to make snickerdoodles, these are amply customizable. So, if Christmas is so last year, or you do not celebrate it at all, just imagine whatever color you prefer in lieu of the red/green sprinkles! These are that awesome mix between crunchy yet chewy, and just taste like cookies, not vegan cookies, just cookies!! 

You need:

1 cup vegan butter or shortening (I used a nutivia variety that is bright yellow to simulate that buttery look)

1.25 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup stevia

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

2.5 cups flour (I used a sprouted wheat flour)

Sprinkles or coconut flakes, or cinnamon/sugar (optional)
Mix all ingredients (except sprinkles) well, form into 1 inch balls, press balls flat into round cookies with a spoon, then press into sprinkles. If doing snickerdoodles, roll balls into cinnamon/sugar before pressing them out flat. These don’t expand or rise that much, so just shape them how you want them to be out of the oven. Place on parchment paper and bake at 375 for 9 minutes. Let cool and then enjoy!
