I am very excited to be apart of the first annual holiday Blog Hop Cookie Swap, led by the talented Sarah Gibson of Room For Tuesday! When she asked me to be apart of this swap, I thought my kitchen renovation would be completed, but it’s not quite done yet, so I had to snap pictures of nothing more than the cookie itself. I normally don’t just post food, but that’s what’s happening today folks! Along with a slew of talented design bloggers (all mentioned below), I’m giving you one of my favorite cookie recipes to share. Make sure you click through the entire lineup below.
Because I am gluten free, dairy free and mostly grain free, I wanted to share a recipe that is very allergy friendly. I don’t have a name for these, so I guess I’ll call them Coconut Sugar Cookie Drops. Honestly, I made this recipe up while trying to make sugar cookies and forgetting to purchase some of the ingredients. Here’s what you need for the recipe.
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Whisk GF flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Beat coconut sugar, 3/4 cup butter, and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract together in a bowl using an electric mixer; beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until mixture is smooth. Mix vegan butter mixture into flour mixture and form dough into a ball. Wrap ball with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
3. Roll dough onto a lightly floured surface and cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Arrange cookies on a baking sheet.
4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Cool cookies on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Now, the frosting is the EASIEST frosting to make. All you need is powdered sugar and water. That’s it! Empty a bag of powdered sugar into a bowl, begin adding water and start whisking away. You will eventually find the perfect consistency after adding more water and whisking more times. After you’ve made the frosting, use a spoon and lightly drip the frosting on the cookies.
That’s it! Super duper easy. These cookies will stay fresh for a few days. I also love them because you can freeze ahead of time and bake them whenever you’re in need of a treat. Hope you can use this recipe this holiday season! Check out my friends below for more YUMMY recipes! And share your favorite cookie recipes below in the comment section.
