2½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup organic sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
½ tsp baking soda
1 cup vegan margarine
3 to 4 Tbsp water
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup icing
1/3 cup vegan margarine, melted
3 cups powdered sugar
2 to 4 Tbsp water
vegan food dye, optional
Preheat oven to 350°.
Line 2 or 3 large baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat.
In a food processor, combine all-purpose flour, organic sugar, and baking soda. Add vegan margarine, water, and pure vanilla extract. Pulse until soft and doughy. If needed, add 1 more tablespoon water.
Working with half the dough at a time, on a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out until it is ¼ inch thick.
Using a 3-inch cookie cutter*, cut out as many shapes as you can. You can combine any remaining scraps to roll and cut more cookies.
If the dough gets too soft to work with, refrigerate it for 10 to 15 minutes.
Place the shapes on the prepared baking sheets about ½ inch apart and sprinkle with organic sugar.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly golden around the edges. Let cool on the pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk vegan margarine and powdered sugar.
Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it reaches a smooth consistency.
Whisk in a few drops of vegan food dye, if desired.
