After the success of my vegan royal icing, I decided to try to give vegan sugar cookies a try. When I made the vegan royal icing, I did it only because I was fascinated with the idea of making something delicious out of the liquid in a can of chickpeas. I didn’t have anyone who follows a vegan lifestyle to make it for, it was pure curiosity.
After consulting Google, I found a recipe that looked interesting on Gretchen’s Bakery’s website. It was a bonus that it too called for aquafaba. I made minimal changes. We love roasted chickpeas so it was no hardship to open another can of them. Directions on how to make roasted chickpeas can be found here
This cookie dough is a little different to work with than my normal sugar cookie recipe. You must work additional flour into the dough after chilling it to be able to successfully roll it out, as is stated in the recipe. I found that we liked the cookies better when they were allowed to brown slightly. Link to Vegan Royal Icing
I would definitely make them again. Let me know how you like them
