super simple sugar cookies


On the way home from preschool yesterday, B. asked, “Can we make sprinkle cookies when we get home?” I paused momentarily, then replied, “Why not?” Check out Sweet Bean’s  simple recipe for vegan sugar cookies I whipped up that is made with whole wheat pastry flour. I took us 10 minutes to mix the dough, and another 10 for them to bake at 350 degrees.

This easy baking project is perfect to do with kids for the holidays: bust out the cookie cutters and make any shaped cookies you please. We felt inspired to create a T-rex, a stegosaurus, a gingerbread man, some with chocolate chips for S, and a few traditionally-shaped round cookies with blue sprinkles and powered sugar on top.
