Soft, sweet, and buttery, these vegan sugar cookies are festive holiday treats that are perfect for virtually any occasion!
Around Christmastime, I enjoy decorating my sugar cookies like snowflakes, Christmas trees, and candy canes!
These vegan food colorings are both colorful and cruelty-free!
You can also make these cookies into heart shapes for Valentine's Day. I recommend replacing the vanilla extract with lemon extract, and mixing 1 tbsp. lemon juice, 1 to 2 tbsp. water, and 1 cup powdered sugar to make the icing!
For St. Patrick's Day, these sugar cookies can easily be cut into clover shapes and decorated with some green icing for a festive treat!
