6 1/2 oz. vegan margarine (try Earth Balance brand)
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup almond or soy milk
1/2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
In a large bowl, whip the vegan margarine and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Mix in the baking powder, followed by the nondairy milk and vanilla extract.
Slowly add the flour and mix until well combined.
Roll the dough into two logs that have the diameter of a cookie.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a cookie tray with cooking spray.
Cut each log into 1/4-inch-thick slices and place on the cookie tray.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until light brown on the edges.
I really, REALLY love cookies, but I don't love spending a ton of time making them. This recipe is super-easy, and the dough can be made ahead of time and then sliced and baked into cookies in a flash!
