My girls couldn't get enough of these cookies. They are soft on the inside with a slightly crunchy outside. They loved rolling the balls, decorating them with sprinkles and marbling the dough.
Sugar Cookie Balls
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup dairy free margarine, softened
1/4 cup soy milk mixed with 3/4 tsp lemon juice - allow to set for 5 minutes or until thickened
1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
Food coloring and/or sprinkles, optional
Use an electric mixer to cream the sugar and margarine. Add the soy milk-lemon juice mixture and vanilla then beat until combined. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture then beat until thoroughly combined. Shape the dough into 1 1/2" balls then press them down lightly on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 14-16 minutes or until lightly golden.
* These cookies barely change their shape during baking, so you can choose if you want them rounded or flat.
* You can sprinkle the cookies with additional sugar or sprinkles before baking.
* To add color to the cookies, you can add food coloring with the vanilla extract for a uniformed color to the cookies or you can stir the food coloring in right before rolling to make marbled cookies.
