Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 1/4 cup flour

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1-2 Tbsp. water

  • Vegan icing (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Combine the flour, sugar, and baking soda well. Slowly add the vegan butter, vanilla, and water, mixing well. Add extra water if the dough seems dry.
  • Divide into two even pieces, rolling each out onto the parchment paper on the cookie sheets. It should be about ¼ inch thick. Cut into shapes, dipping the cookie cutter into flour between cuts. Remove the excess dough. Freeze the cookies for 30 minutes.
  • Bake for 7 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely. Spread with the icing (optional).
  • Combine the remaining scraps of dough and make more cookies, repeating the steps above.
