Milo got together with a friend and decorated cookies. I couldn’t go over there empty handed, so I made the gingerbread cut out cookies from vegan cookies invade your cookie jar. These are so delicious, especially if you cut them a little on the thicker side. …and yes, those are millenium falcons, in case you were wondering 😉
1/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup non dairy milk
2 cups flour
1/2 tspn baking soda
1/2 tspn baking powder
1/2 tspn salt
Whisk together the oil and sugar for about three minutes. Add molasses and non dairy milk. Sift in all the other dry ingredients and mix until a stiff dough is formed (I needed to add a little bit more milk and mix with my hands). Flatten the dough into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap and chill for an hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
On lightly floured surface, roll the dough out and make shapes with your cookie cutter. Move to prepared pan and bake for 8 minutes. Remove cookies and let them cool for two minutes on the baking sheet. Wait until they are completely cool before icing.
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
2-4 Tablespoon non dairy milk
Whisk all the ingredients using a fork or wire whisk until smooth. Add the milk one tablespoon at a time….Combine to form a glaze that can easily be spread with knife or piped from a pastry bag.
