Dairy Soy Free Sugar and Cinnamon Sugar Cookies







UPDATE: Please make sure to double check ingredients each time you buy. I hope I never overlook anything but it’s possible and ingredients can change. A lot of my posts are over two years old and since I have gone back dairy soy free I have discovered a few items I use to buy all the time that now have soy in them.


With fall on it's way everyone likes their house to smell like baking cookies. Sugar cookies are great because you can use cookie cutters to make them into the holiday shapes or you can use frosting, sprinkles, and decorative sugars. The kids can help make and decorate so it's great family time. Just because you're dairy soy free does not mean you have to miss out. These are yummy dairy soy free sugar cookies that will have your house smelling like the holidays. Even if you're not dairy soy free you should give these simple cookies a try. Just keep the kids (and adults) from licking the spoon since there are raw eggs in the batter.

Dairy Soy Free Sugar Cookies

Ingredients:

2 large eggs
2/3 cup oil (100% Corn or Canola)
2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup white sugar
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
(Extra Sugar & Some Cinnamon to Roll Cookies In)






Directions:

Beat together eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar.

Mix flour, baking powder, & salt in separate bowl. Mix well.

Then combine all ingredients.






I roll mine into balls and coated half of the batch in sugar and the other half in a sugar & cinnamon mixture.







Tip 1: I let my dough set about 20 minutes in the refrigerator to firm up a bit (also put the dough back in the fridge between batches).

Tip 2: It helps if you wet your fingers a bit when rolling the dough into balls and in the sugar (keeps the dough from sticking to your hands).

Drop heaping spoonfuls about 3" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.






Bake at 400 degrees for 6-10 minutes until lightly golden (mine took 10 minutes).










Yields 24 Cookies

As you can see from the pictures, cookie uniformity is not a priority at our house. I like all different shapes and sizes, they feel more homemade to me. But if you are taking cookies to a get together you can use a cookie scoop or small ice cream scoop to get perfect sized cookies every time.
