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!
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.
