Sugar Cookies

22 Nov

Cream together until light and fluffy:
1 cup Earth Balance margarine
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup vegan yogurt
1/4 tsp salt

Mix together in separate bowl:
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 – 3 cups all purpose flour*
(1 Tbsp minced lemon zest)

*use the smaller amount if you are making drop cookies, use the larger amount if you want to roll them out. If you roll them out, you will need to chill them 45 minutes before rolling.

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a large baking sheet with a silicon mat or parchment paper; set aside. Mix the flour mixture into the creamed mixture 1 scoop at a time, until just combined. Using a 1 1/2 teaspoon cookie scoop, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with sanding sugar, if desired. Bake at 350˚F for 8-9 minutes. Cool completely before decorating as desired.
