Easy Vegan Christmas Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

The holiday season is among us my friends! Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. Not just because of the presents, but because of the decorations and baking!

How to Make Vegan Christmas Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

Making Vegan Christmas Sprinkle Sugar Cookies is really easy, which is why they’re one of my favorite cookies to make! To make these, you’ll just need nine ingredients. Most of which (if not all) you probably already have waiting for you in the kitchen.

To make these Vegan Christmas Sprinkle Sugar Cookies, you’ll start by preheating your oven and creaming together the sugar and vegan butter until it’s fluffy. Next, you’ll add in all other remaining ingredients with the exception of the Christmas sprinkles.

Once everything has been added to the mixing bowl, combine the ingredients until the dough is formed and pulling away from the sides. If you think your dough is still sticky, try adding in small bits of flour at a time (1 tbsp or so) until it no longer is.

Using a cookie scoop, scoop out a portion of the dough at a time and roll into a ball using the palm of your hands. Once the ball has been formed, toss the dough around in a small bowl with your sprinkles until all sides have been covered. To get them fully covered, gently press the dough into the sprinkles in order to fill in any uncovered areas.

I’ll be the first to admit, making these Easy Vegan Christmas Sprinkle Sugar Cookies took a lot more sprinkles than what I initially thought they would! Wanna cut down on the amount of sprinkles you’re using? Try only rolling half of each cookie into the sprinkles and then bake them with the sprinkles side facing up so that the sprinkles remain on the top.

Once your cookie dough is covered in sprinkles, transfer the baking pan to your preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes. Once they’re finished baking, allow them to cool for a few minutes, then you’re ready to enjoy!

Tips for the best Vegan Christmas Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

  • Be sure that your softened vegan butter isn’t too soft. Vegan butter is a little different than dairy butter. In my experience, it melts much faster than dairy butter. For that reason, whenever I’m trying to soften vegan butter, I avoid putting it on the stove or right beside it. Instead, I’ll put it on the counter where it’s able to get a little sunlight, but not too much and leave it there for a few hours (checking on it intermittently). If your vegan butter is too soft, your cookies will spread more than intended.
  • To save sprinkles, try only rolling half of each cookie into the sprinkles and then bake them with the sprinkles side facing up so that the sprinkles remain on the top.
  • Allow the cookies to cool for the best experience. I know, I know. Coming straight out of the oven, these cookies will smell and look amazing, but don’t be so quick to devour them straight out of the oven! Not only will they be hot (obviously), but they will most likely fall apart. Be patient my friend 🙂 Try cleaning up the kitchen first, then go back to them once you’re done.
