Vegan Sugar Cookies for ? Christmas

Easy Vegan Sugar Cookies with Coconut and Green Icing

Merry Christmas you guys!!! What are y’all baking today? Cookie day here.

These coconut sugar cookies are a popular Christmas recipe in Scandinavia, and taste buttery and sweet. Sugar cookies are rolled and cut into shapes, or hand-shaped. They’re the perfect cookie to make a huge batch of during the holidays, and they’re so much fun to decorate! 

Makes: 40-45 Cookies
Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Cook Time: 9-10 Minutes

Nutrition Info Per Serving
Carbs: 9g
Protein: 0g
Fat: 2g
Calories: 53

Ingredients:

Dough:

¾ cup powdered cane sugar
¼ cup + 2 tbsp coconut oil
¼ cup almond milk, unsweetened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
¼ tsp baking powder

Glaze:

½ cup powdered cane sugar
1 ½ tsp water
Greens powder, such as barley grass, wheatgrass, or spirulina, etc. (optional for green icing)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 large baking pans with parchment paper. 
  2. Gently heat the coconut oil and almond milk in a small saucepot until the coconut oil is melted, but the mixture is not hot. 
  3. Add this mixture along with the powdered sugar and vanilla into a stand mixer and mix on medium speed until combined – about 3 minutes. 
  4. Add the flour and baking powder and mix until mostly combined. Dump the contents of the bowl onto a gently floured surface and knead into a dough. 
  5. Divide the dough in half and set one half aside. Roll out the other half into an even, thin layer about ¼ inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out pieces and lay them onto the parchment lined trays. Do the same with the other half of the dough. Gather any trimmings and roll the dough out again to cut out as many cookies as possible. 
  6. Bake the cookies for 9-10 minutes or until they are slightly golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool.
  7. While the cookies are cooling, make your glaze. Whisk together the powdered sugar with the water. If the mixture is too thick, add a tiny bit of water at a time. If you want green icing, you can add a small spoon of powdered greens into the icing and whisk to combine. Add the desired amount until you achieve the color you like. 
  8. When the cookies are cooled, use a brush tool to brush the glaze onto the cookies. Allow them to dry before serving.

Vegan Blueberry Biscuits

Vegan Blueberry Biscuits

Made with fresh blueberries, easy to make

You’ll be sweet on these! The fresh blueberries and sugar work to make these biscuits a great way to start your day (though you can certainly eat them any time). They’re buttery and salty and easy to make. Add some jelly if you want: get your jam on for an extra treat. 

Makes: 8 Biscuits
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Minutes

Nutrition Info Per Serving
Carbs: 31g
Protein: 4g
Fat: 9g
Calories: 230

Ingredients:

Biscuits:

1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted (plus more for your work surface)
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup + 2 tbsp vegan butter, cold
½ cup fresh blueberries

Glaze:

¼ cup powdered cane sugar
1 tbsp non-dairy milk (e.g. almond milk) or water

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk lemon juice and almond milk until combined. Set aside. 
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. 
  4. Cut ¼ cup of your cold butter into small cubes and add it to your dry ingredients. With your hands or with a pastry cutter, combine the butter with the flour and mix until it is mostly combined. The butter will not completely combine, and its normal to have small chunks. Work quickly so the butter does not melt. 
  5. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the almond milk. Combine the mixture with your hands and work it into a dough ball. It will be sticky. If you find it is too sticky, you can add extra flour, a little bit at a time. 
  6. Dust a generous amount of flour onto your counter surface and knead the dough gently. It does not need to be overworked, just gently kneaded a few times until the dough feels light and fluffy and not sticky. 
  7. Flatten the dough gently into a disk shape. Place your fresh blueberries onto the center of the dough and fold the dough inwards to make a ball. Knead the dough very gently so as not to crush the blueberries. 
  8. Make the dough ball into a loaf-type, rectangular shape. Using a large sharp knife or a pastry cutter, cut the dough into 8 equal biscuits. 
  9. Melt the remaining 2 tbsp butter in a pan. Gently brush each biscuit with melted butter. 
  10. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden. Allow them to cool.
  11. Make your sugar glaze by whisking powdered sugar with non-dairy milk or water. Drizzle them on the biscuits. You can also cut the biscuits in half and spread them with jam or vegan butter.
