Vegan Soft Baked Frosted Sugar Cookies
Hello + Happy Tuesday!
I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge cookie person. I haven’t made a ton of recipes, I don’t crave them all the time but there are few that are just staples
One of them is Soft Baked Frosted Sugar Cookies!
For most people you could find these staple cookies at your local market. They have them for every season and holiday, because people just love them. Just like all recipes though, a homemade version is so much better than any store-bought option!
So it’s no surprise that these vegan frosted sugar cookies are such a hit! I actually created this cookie recipe back in 2016 and I had yet to make a frosted version. I know, I should have made one lol.
What’s great about this recipe, is everything! They are quick, easy, features staple ingredients, affordable, perfect for any season, requires not even a vegan egg, you can mix up the frosting as desired, they are great for entertaining, can easily be made in bulk, are buttery soft, and just a crowd pleaser!
Whether you’re searching for the perfect spring cookie, or simply love soft baked cookies, you have to try these new vegan Soft Baked Frosted Sugar Cookies!!
Why this recipe is great:
Great for the holidays!
Not even a vegan egg is needed!
