These all occasion Classic Vegan Sugar Cookies are based upon my mother’s recipe—it’s now a third generation recipe, as I’ve handed it down to my sons. Originally, this cookie recipe wasn’t vegan, but I worked with these cookies over time to create this simple, few-ingredient vegan sugar cookie that is truly a fail-proof recipe. This is a very special cookie—it’s meant for you to take time with it as you roll out the dough, and decorate each one—each cookie is a true gift. It’s about making something special. When my children were little I made these vegan sugar cookies for every holiday, rolling out cookies and cutting them into shapes that matched the occasion—Easter, Birthday Parties, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day, Thanksgiving, Valentines Day, and of course, Christmas. My boys would love to help me decorate the cookies. I’ve been collecting cookie cutters for years, and inherited some from my mother too. Just make up the dough, chill it for a bit, roll it out, cut into shapes with cookie cutters, and decorate the cookies. I have also been collecting cookie decorations when I travel—many of those featured are from trips to Europe, where they have beautiful baking traditions. But you can find cookie decorations anywhere! I love to use raisins, chocolate chips, nuts, seeds, sprinkles, and coconut. It’s all about using your creativity!
