One of the biggest challenges of raising vegan kiddos is making sure that they never feel deprived or left out. The holidays can make this challenging because so much of our society’s celebrations revolve around food. Navigating this as a vegan parent can be exhausting!
Luckily we’re surrounded by supportive friends, so when I suggested a sugar cookie playdate I knew that no one would mind if the cookies were vegan. We used this recipe, which turned out fantastic. Everyone was surprised by the excellent flavor; plus, the thin ones turned out perfectly crisp and the thicker ones were soft and buttery. My favorite thing about this recipe is its simplicity. There’s no vegan margarine or hard to find ingredients. Just be sure to keep the dough nice and cool while you’re working with it. (If it warms up too much, must pop it back into the fridge so that it doesn’t fall apart.) The biggest perk to vegan cookie dough is that you can eat as much as you want with no risk of salmonella!
