Sugar cookies are my all time favourite Christmas baking item. 

So simple, so delicious!

Vegan Sugar Cookies

(Makes 12 cookies, you can easily double this recipe to make more)

  • 3/4 cup vegan butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup chickpea aquafaba
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 and 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Cream the butter and the sugar together. Add the chickpea aquafaba and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients.

Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until it forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Roll the dough out onto a well floured surface and cut into desired shapes. Place cookies onto a parchment lines baking sheet and put in the freezer for 1 hour. Chilling the dough like this is essential for ensuring the cookies don’t spread when baking.

Bake at 350F for 6-8 minutes, removing just when edges start to brown. Transfer to cooling rack, let cool completely before adding decorations of choice!

I used a version of royal icing for mine, but I subbed in arrowroot powder for meringue powder, it worked wonderfully!
Let me know if you make these, I’d love to see how you decorate them! Tag me on instagram @vegcouver so I can check them out 🙂
