It's not the holidays in my mind until these Spritz cookies come out of the oven. My Mom and I got together for our traditional Swedish baking fest, and my main goal of the day was to successfully veganize these family favorite cookies.
These cookies are so simple to make, and work best if you have a cookie press. You could make these into any shape, but over the years we have perfected these little circle wreaths and find they come out the best.
adapted from love like a vegan
2 1/2 C all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 C sugar
1 C vegan butter
1/2 C plain soy yogurt
1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
variation - use almond extract instead of vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 F.
With an electric mixer, cream together the sugar and butter. Add the soy yogurt and vanilla, and mix well. Sift in the flour and salt and mix until a dough forms.
Put your dough into a cookie press and form cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Watch carefully so they don't start to burn.
These cookies came out just right! They're perfectly buttery, crunchy cookies with a little touch of vanilla. From my little corner of the internet to yours, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!
Thanks for stopping by!
