Growing up, my mom and I would always make rolled sugar cutout cookies together. Nothing was more fun than watching a few simple ingredients come to life in the form of golden and fun shaped Christmas cookies. These vegan cut cookies are super delicious, fool proof easy, and low calorie! And, if you're someone who loves the smell of freshly baked cookies, these wont disappoint! This is a family-friendly vegan Cutout Christmas Cookie that everyone will love and they're super fun to make!
2cupregular or gluten free all purpose flourIf gluten-free, I recommend King Arthur Measure for Measure gluten-free flour. Please don't substitute any other flour such as almond flour, baking flour, etc.
Vanilla Icing for Decorating
1tablespoonunsweetened almond or oat milk
Melted Vegan Chocolate for Decorating
½cupmelted vegan chocolate chips
6 Ingredient Vegan Christmas Sugar Cookies
Preheat the oven to 425
In a medium mixing bowl, mix the melted vegan butter, sugar or purecane sweetener, almond milk, vanilla, and baking powder. Then, add the flour and mix until a thick dough forms. Form the dough into a mound and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
Roll the cookie dough onto a floured surface, adding more flour as needed if the dough is sticky. Roll it into a ¼ - ⅓ of an inch thick and use your cookie cutters to cut shapes. Place the shapes onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes for softer cookies or 10-12 minutes for more firm cookies (until they are lightly golden).
You will still have plenty of dough left so roll the dough back into a mound and repeat the previous step until all of the dough is used. You should have about 40 cookies.
If you use purecane, the cookies will be 53 calories each!
If decorating your cookies, simply melt the vegan chocolate and butter together or mix the icing ingredients with an electric hand mixer. Use a pastry bag to ice your cookies and enjoy!
