A while back Heather The Wife found a recipe for Sugar Cookies that is exactly that.
The best part about this recipe is that Heather will whip these out when she's bored, or when she's looking for a snack, or whenever, they are just that dang easy. I think the last time she made them it was about midnight and we had a couple of friends over, mid sentence she stops and says "HEY! Who wants cookies?!", moments later, we had cookies.
And so here we go, Sugar Cookies.
|Not my pic, if you're not sure what a sugar cookie looks like...this is it.|
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Vegan Margarine (Becel makes the best I've had)
2 TBSP Soy Milk - Full Fat, leave that "light" stuff on the shelf where it belongs.
2 TSP Vanilla
1 Cup Flour
1 1/2 TSP Baking Powder
LOTS OF SPRINKES! (Those classic translucent, coloured, sugar crystals are the best, really)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the flour, sugar, and baking powder together. In a separate bowl combine the margarine, vanilla and soy milk. Cut the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. You should get something that resembles a bowl full of pebbles.
Now bam bam those pebbles into a ball of dough, but don't over mix it.
Dust your ball with some flour to make it easier to work with, roll out onto a flat surface and cut into shapes.
OR go with the classic shape, round. Put balls of dough on a cookie sheet and press them with a fork, there you go, it's a shape.
Dust with your fancy sprinkles. If in doubt, add more sprinkles.
Bake at 350 till just getting golden.
NOW GO, MAKE COOKIES.
Santa is expecting cookies.
