Vegan Christmas cookies recipe is simple and delicious. You can use any shape you prefer, such as trees, stars, Santa, or plain old circles. Vegan holiday cookies are great for any festive time of year. I made some Christmas trees, snow flakes, and even made some “Ho Ho Ho” cookies ha ha.
This vegan Christmas cookies recipe uses applesauce as an egg replacement. However there are many other options you can use instead. Other egg replacement options include, flax egg, pumpkin purée, or even banana. I try to stay away from bananas however because it always creates a strong taste.
Vegan Holiday sugar cookies need the following ingredients: vegan butter, granulated sugar, and 1/4 cup brown sugar. You will also need apple sauce (or egg replacer of your choice), vanilla extract, and almond extract. Also all-purpose flour and cornstarch.
Other ingredients for vegan Christmas cookies recipe include baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, and almond or soy milk. The vegan frosting is super simple, all you need is vegan butter, powdered sugar, and vegan milk.
Start making the cookies by beating the vegan butter in a large mixing bowl. Combine sugars, extracts, and egg replacement into the bowl- mix again for 1 minute. In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients (flour, cornstarch, salt, baking soda and baking powder) and whisk
Then sift the dry ingredient mixture over butter/ sugar mixture for the smoothest vegan Christmas cookies recipe. Mix until thoroughly combined. Then add almond milk and mix until a soft dough is formed. Cover vegan holiday cookies and freeze dough for 15 minutes, or refrigerate for 30-45 minutes.
