Vegan Decorated Sugar Cookies

Just like traditional sugar cookies but without eggs or dairy and just as delicious!

I have made traditional sugar cookies for many years. As a semi-retired cake decorator, I've made MANY animal-based decorated cakes, cookies and sweeet treats over the years. For some reason though, I don't have a lot of confidence when it comes to plant-based baking. I think it's because I've had way more fails than successes! And simply swapping out animal-based ingredients for plant-based ones doesn't always work.

Fortunately, I have found Nora Cooks Vegan recipes to be the best for making sweet baked goods and this recipe is no exception. They baked up just like traditional decorated sugar cookies and the icing recipe is very easy and forgiving!

Slightly modified recipe below.



3/4 cup vegan butter (I like Flora brand), slightly softened
