The Best Vegan Christmas Cookies Recipe

by | December 12, 2018

One of my favorite things to do every year is to make vegan  Christmas cookies with my kids. They love to cut out the shapes and decorate them. We always leave a couple on a plate for Santa, and every year he devours them.

Leave to cool on a wire rack while you make your icing.

  • Vegan food coloring

Directions

Mix the powdered sugar, corn syrup and almond milk in a bowl with a fork until smooth. If it seems too thick, add more almond milk 1/2 tsp at a time. If it looks too runny, add more confectioners sugar 1 tsp at a time. (Consistency should be thin enough to drizzle but thick enough to retain its shape and your best yet vegan Christmas cookies)

Separate into small bowls and add a tiny bit of food coloring if you want to use a few colors.

Transfer your icing into an icing bag and decorate your cookies.

Leave to set for about 5 minutes.
