1

Begin by preheating the oven to 425. Mix the flax seed meal and hot water together to make the flax eggs. Allow this to sit for 2 minutes until a thick gel forms. This is what we call a "flax egg". If you're not vegan, you may use one regular egg in this recipe.

2

Mix the melted vegan butter, flax eggs, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, and salt (if using). If you'd like to make the sugar cookies pink, you may add red food coloring to the mixture. Add the regular or gluten free all purpose flour until a thick dough forms.

3

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use your hands to roll about a tablespoon of the dough into a ball and place onto the baking sheet. It should roll easily in your hands - If the dough is too sticky to roll, sprinkle a little more flour into the dough (start with just a tablespoon or two) until the dough is thick enough to roll into a ball. Place each ball onto the baking sheet and bake in the oven for 9-10 minutes.

4

While the cookies are baking, use an electric hand mixer to mix the almond milk, softened vegan butter, and powdered sugar, and vanilla together to make the vegan vanilla frosting. Option to add 2 drops of red food coloring to make the frosting pink. Let the cookies cool before frosting them and topping with valentine's day sprinkles. Frosting adds about 50 calories each. These are also delicious without frosting!
