Vegan Sugar Cookies:
*I use Earth Balance baking sticks for almost all of my vegan baking, but any butter should work. I wrote these cookies to be vegan, but regular butter and milk will also work. **I almost always use oat milk for baking as it contributes to browning, but again– any milk should work.
If you want to make shaped cut-out cookies, roll out the batter in between 2 pieces of parchment paper. The thicker the roll out, the chewier the cookie will be, the thinner the crispier the cookie. The butter in this recipe will make the batter soft to work with if left out too long; the faster that you handle these, the easier the cut outs will be. If it becomes too soft, then place back in the fridge/freezer if necessary.
These are a nice chewy cookie, which is what I prefer. If you want a crispier cookie, then press it more or roll the dough to less than a 1/4 inch. Both are good!
If you want a thicker glaze, then dip the cookies a few times. It will “harden” nicely, but these cookies should be stored in the fridge after the first day.
