Hi, I'm Marisa Voorhees. I'm a caterer and a party planner and I do it all gluten and dairy-freely. You can find me at MarisaVoorhees.com. So today, we're making dairy-free sugar cookies. Sugar cookies are a good thing to have on hand. I love to make a batch and keep it in the fridge or freezer so that I can roll them out, frost them and get them to a party celebration or just with my morning coffee. So this is a pretty easy one. My trick to making it dairy-free is I like to use the Earth Balance vegan buttery sticks. They work quite nicely in cookies and are a great butter alternative. So for this recipe, it's one cup of buttery sticks, and you have a different one that you prefer, that is just fine too. But this is my preferred one. So you're doing one cup of butter sticks. You're doing two and three-fourths cup of any sort of flour that you like. I happened to make a gluten-free flour mix, that's because I'm gluten-free, but you can use any preferred baking flour that you'd like with this. With that, it's three fourths of a teaspoon of baking powder. It's one teaspoon vanilla, one cup sugar. I like to stay a little light on sugar because I like to frost mine, and one egg at room temperature. All this goes in along with your flour mix and you'll mix that up and you'll have a lovely dough. So once you've made your dough, you can chill it for a little bit if you like a firmer cookie or if you want to roll and cut these out. If you do choose to roll and cut these out, I suggest that you dust your board and your rolling pin with powdered sugar and look for powdered sugar that is gluten free, that isn't cut with things like wheat flour or corn starch that could be contaminated. I found one that has tapioca flour that works nicely. You're going to roll them into two inch balls. You're going to press them down. They spread a little bit, but they like a little bit of help, and then bake them and I actually prefer mine frosted and with sprinkles and it turns out a lot of people do. I asked on Facebook and that's what they wanted. So next up we're going to frost them. So once you've rolled out your cookies and placed them on your cookie sheet, I like to use parchment paper, and you're going to want to bake them at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes. They'll have a light brown to the edge. Once they're out and they've cooled a little bit, you're going to do a simple butter cream frosting, this is a dairy free butter cream frosting, and you can find both the recipe for the dairy cream butter frosting as well as if you'd like to make yours gluten free like mine, the cookies gluten free, you can find the recipe for the flour mix on my website. And that is MarisaVoorhees.com. So once you frost them a little bit, you're going to add frosting and I did a poll on Facebook and it turns out people feel that it should be frosting or frosting with sprinkles, but it should never be just sprinkles. So there you go. Frosted sugar cookies that are dairy free. Again, I'm Marisa Voorhees, the food sensitive foodie. Thanks for watching, I wish you a delicious day.
