Simple Vegan Sugar Cookies

Simple Vegan Sugar Cookies

This recipe is sufficient for about 2 baking trays (60 – 80 cookies depending on the thickness and size)


  • 270g all purpose flour
  • 6g baking powder
  • 60g powder sugar
  • pinch of vanilla (or 1 vanilla sugar)
  • 125g vegan butter (room temperature)
  • 4 tbsp oat milk


  1. Take your vegan butter from refrigerator and let it warm up at room temperature for about 1hour.
  2. Sift all purpose flour and baking powder in a large bowl, then add all other ingredients and knead with your hands.
  3. Divide dough in two pieces because sections of dough are easier to roll out.
  4. Roll out cookie dough to 0,6 cm (1/4 inch) thick and cut into shapes.
  5. Chill cookie dough for about 10 minutes. Without chilling, these cookie cutter sugar cookies won’t hold their shape.
  6. Bake for 10-13 minutes in oven preheated to 175 degrees Celsius / 347 degrees Fahrenheit.
  7. After 10 – 13 minutes take them out of the oven and leave them to cool in a cold space and then decorate!  

Decorating suggestions:

  1. cover them in powder sugar,
  2. cover them with chocolate and sprinkles,
  3. bake half of cookies with a hole in the middle and put apricot jam in between cookies (linzer cookies) ,
  4. cover them with icing (this one is too sweet for me, but they look beautiful in colour)
