Christmas season means cookie season! These star wars cookies seem to be our new annual cookie tradition. I tried out anew recipe this year, and we dyed the dough green instead of making frosting.

Found original recipe here and I halved it below for our cookie needs.

3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup vegan margarine, softened
1/8 cup vanilla soymilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

In large bowl, beat powdered sugar, the margarine, soymilk, and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed to combine. Stir in flour, cornstarch and baking soda until blended. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Heat oven to 375° F. Lightly grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. Divide dough in half. Roll each dough half to1/4 inch thickness on generously floured surface. Cut into desired shapes with 2- to 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters. On cookie sheet, place cutouts about 2 inches apart. Add sprinkles now if you arent doing icing.

Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
