Can you have a holiday season without sugar cookies? They are just kind of a staple around this time of year. I have a fun recipe for plant based sugar cookies that I'd love to share.
Holiday Sugar Cookies with Essential Oil
1 1/2 cups organic powdered sugar (I like to make my own using coconut sugar refined to a powder in the blender)
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup softened coconut butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 drops essential oil (make sure yours has nutrition facts on the label) Some ideas to try: Peppermint, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Ginger, Wild Orange, etc.
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp corn starch
2 1/2 cups flour
1/8 tsp salt
Mix together sugar, almond milk, coconut butter, vanilla, and essential oil. Blend well. Combine cream of tartar, baking soda, corn starch, flour, and salt. Add to oil and sugar mixture until a dough forms. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Let dough warm a little till pliable. Roll and cut shapes. Bake for 7-8 minutes and cool.
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp almond milk
2 drops essential oil
Combine until smooth and frost your cookies. Let dry to harden the frosting. Yum!
I made an illustrated version and decided to make it into a little printable gift set. Share the cookie love and make it even more special by adding some of your favorite essential oils. Just make sure you are using oils approved for internal use and remember to use them sparingly. A little essential oil goes a long way!
This gift set includes some stickers, the illustrated recipe postcard, some tags, and a full sheet of my cookie illustrations made into a repeating pattern to use for wrapping paper, tags, cards– whatever you'd like! You can find the printable HERE.
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! Thanks for being a part of my essential oil community!
