The combination of vanilla and almond extract in these cookies is the best thing ever – it makes the smell and taste all that much better!

 

One this I love about these cookies is that can customize the frosting and sprinkles for any occasion.

 

Think red and green for Christmas, red and pink for Valentine’s, yellow and green for St. Patrick’s Day, etc.

If you’ve never had Lofthouse sugar cookies before, they are the lightest, fluffiest, most cakey cookies ever, with a delicious flavor.

 

They are as light as a cloud with a classic buttery sweet flavor.

 

I wanted to recreate this childhood favorite with a dairy-free and egg-free version that would look and taste like the iconic cookie.

 

The result is these bright and soft sugar cookies that are so tasty and similar you’ll never be able to tell they are completely vegan.

Lofthouse Sugar Cookie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Flour – All purpose is best for this recipe; bleach or unbleached.
  • Sugar – Simple white sugar is best for color and taste!
  • Butter – Be sure to use vegan butter sticks and not from a tub, these are available at many grocery stores.
  • Vanilla & Almond – This combination is absolutely delicious and makes these cookies next level!
  • Plant Milk – Any kind is fine, I usually use oat or almond.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar – Just a little goes a long way, you can also use white vinegar. Really helps when you’re not baking with eggs to get the perfect textures.
  • Baking Powder & Soda – This combination is perfect for soft and chewy cookies.
  • Salt – To bring out all the butter, vanilla and almond flavors!

How to Make Sugar Cookies

Making the Cookie Dough

To make these delicious vegan Lofthouse cookies, start by mixing your dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

 

Then mix your butter and sugar until creamy, and then add in the vanilla and almond extracts.

 

Add the plant milk and vinegar and mix until incorporated – it’s okay if there is some slight separation at this point.

 

Pour the dry into the wet mixture and mix just until combined.

 

Then you’ll want to let this chill for thirty minutes in the fridge to prevent too much spreading while baking.

Baking Sugar Cookies

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

 

Take two tablespoons amounts of dough and roll into balls using the palms of your hands, rolling the dough in circles until smooth.

 

Then place on a baking tray covered in parchment paper two inches apart.

 

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are just slightly browned – you can also gently poke the middle of a cookie, and if it springs back up they are done.

 

Allow the cookies to cool for five minutes on the tray, and then transfer to a cooling rack.

Once your cookies are completely cooled, add any frosting you’d like to the tops – or try my Vegan Vanilla Frosting recipe with some food dye!

 

I love adding some food dye to mine to really get that classic Lofthouse sugar cookie look, and then of course add on some rainbow sprinkles and enjoy!
