Vegan Sugar Cookies – Easy Cut outs Cookies
I love spelt flour in cookies because it has a earthy flavor and contains more nutrient and fibre than regular white wheat flour. It is a perfect flour to make nourishing crunchy sugar cookies. Here, I used coconut sugar as a sweetener with is a low GI unrefined sugar compared to unrefined cane sugar.
However, if you are diabetic I test this recipe with erythritol which works very well too. The color of the cookies will be much lighter. Here, I use vegan butter. It is a new product I found in my local organic supermarket – Earthbalance. It looks like margarine in texture or butter that will have been soften at room temperature for few hours. Compared to margarine this vegan butter is natural, 100% dairy free, lactose free and works like magic in cookies! I am usually a big fan of coconut oil in baking but coconut oil and flour does not make crunchy cookies like vegan butter does. If you are not vegan I am sure this recipe will work well with margarine or butter. I used cheap christmas cookie cutters like those one to shape those cookies and it edges cut perfectly with no chill required for the cookie dough.
The top is frosted with fresh coconut butter in which I incorporated few drops of natural food coloring. I decorate some of them with runny peanut butter for a change and add some lovely sugar pearls and sprinkles to make them shine ! It is probably the last recipe I will share before next year. My family in law arrived from France soon. I will spend lots of time travelling with them. Thanks to all of you for reading this little blog.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas.
