Vegan Sugar Cookies


Makes: 2 dozen cookies
Time: Twenty Minutes (Not counting fridge time)


1/2 cup of applesauce
1/2 cup of earth balance soy free vegan butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla
3/4 of a cup of sugar
1 and 3/4 cups of flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt


In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.

Add the applesauce and vanilla then mix well.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Finally, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined its all combined together into a sticky pile of dough. Cover the bowl and throw it (and I do mean THROW it...okay not really) into the fridge for about an hour and go play around on or order my book on Mind Control techniques at Once an hour has passed, preheat oven to 350.

Roll the dough out into walnut size balls and flatten in the hands. Bake a sheet of twelve cookies for about 10 minutes.


Makes just enough for about 2 dozen cookies


2 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
6-8 teaspoons of almond milk
4 teaspoons of agave nectar or maple syrup
a touch of the food coloring of your choice!


In medium bowl, mix together powdered sugar and milk until smooth.

Beat in sweetener and extract until icing is a smooth glossy texture. If it seems too thick add a bit more agave or maple syrup until its the consistency you wish.

Add a drop or two of food coloring for color and BAM - vegan icing ready to be squeezed or spread onto your cookies. Ice cookies and allow to dry overnight.
