Dairy-Free Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies
Dairy-Free Sugar Cookies
1 cup palm shortening
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat palm shortening, sugar, almond milk, eggs, and vanilla together in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add baking soda and salt. Slowly beat flour mixture in to make a smooth dough.
Now you may either use a cookie scoop like we did, and flatten slightly with a flat-bottomed glass. Or roll dough out 1/4-inch thick on a floured work surface and cut into shapes. Arrange cookies on baking sheets. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are firm, about 8-10 minutes. Let cool. Frost and decorate once fully cooled.
Beat palm shortening, confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and almond milk in a bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until frosting is spreadable and slightly fluffy. Frost cooled cookies. Add sprinkles or colored sugars if desired.
