If you need a recipe for Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies, you just found it. These cookies use coconut oil to replace butter and are naturally sweetened with maple syrup. They are plant-based and vegan, and even better: beautiful and delicious! Enjoy these cookies plain or decorate with vanilla flavored icing and colorful sprinkles for a festive look.

These vegan cookies are super simple to make. You just combine the wet ingredients, add in the dry ingredients, and mix until the dough forms. Now chill, roll, cut, and bake. You can choose to bake the cookies fluffier and softer or bake them for 2 minutes more to make them more crispy. Once baked, transfer to a wire rack to cool. While the cookies cool, make the icing by stirring together confectioners’ sugar, non-dairy milk, and vanilla until smooth. Spoon the icing over the top of each cookie and add sprinkles if you wish. Wait for the icing to set before serving. 

To make the Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies, you will need the following ingredients:
