Traditional Sugar Cookies

What you need: 

3/4 cup vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance)
1 cup sugar
2 Ener-G Egg replacer "eggs"
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups all purpose or pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

What you do: 

1. Combine margarine and sugar with a fork until creamy/fluffy. Add "eggs" and vanilla or lemon extract.
2. Separately, combine dry ingredients. Blend into wet ingredients 1/2 cup at a time. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least one hour.
3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out 1/8" thick. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters or with the rim of a jar or juice glass. Grease or parchment paper cover cookie sheet.
4. With a spatula, move cookies to prepared cookie sheet Bake 6-8 minutes or until golden. If you'd like, you can put sprinkles on them just before baking.'

These came out great. I made pumpkin shaped ones for Halloween, the only thing is that I used whole wheat flour rather than all purpose so they had a bit of an "earthy" texture but still delicious.

Its true that they are not super sugary, but thats fine with me because I don't like sweets that are too sweet (unless its chocolate I suppose), plus when you add the sprinkles they get sweeter.

Best of all the ingredients are super simple, which is exactly what I wanted. No tofu, no shortening, just stuff I had already in my pantry. :) Thanks so much!!!

Also I just wanted to add: this made about 16 medium size cookies for me. Good for sharing!

I got mine at a Canadian store called 'the bulk barn'...not sure if they exist in the US
little piggies look so cute,  I must try to find that cookie cutter.

I made these for work in Easter bunnies shapes & they were a hit!  I actually liked them not being as sweet....especially once I added a powdered sugar glaze they were plenty sweet but not overpowering. For the glaze I took some powdered sugar, about 1 tsp egg replacer, 1 tsp vanilla and added water until it was consistency of a thick glaze and then separate and add food colors, etc for cute shapes :)

For being sugar cookies, these aren't very sugary.  This recipe isn't bad, but it leaves something to be desired.
