Ford needed treats for his art class so this is what I came up with!
Sugar Cookie Sandwiches
Sugar Cookies –
- ½ cup canola oil
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup original almond milk
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 350°.
In a stand mixer bowl beat the oil, sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Add in the flour and baking powder, beat on low until the flour mixes in, turn up to high until smooth.
Lightly flour a work space and divide the dough into half. Knead in some dough (it will be sticky) and start rolling out. I rolled out thick cookies, cut with a favorite shape of cookie cutter. Gently roll back out as needed, until all have been cut.
Place on baking sheets and bake for 8-12 minutes. You want a pale white, barely any golden brown on the edges.
Gently lift to cooling racks.
“Buttercream” Frosting –
- 1 stick Earth Balance buttery stick
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
In a stand mixer whip the Earth Balance until fluffy, add in the powder sugar one cup at a time, beating in each addition. Add the vanilla and beat on high for a couple of minutes until light and fluffy.
Spread the frosting between the cookies and top together.
Makes about 23 sandwiches (46 cookies) but will vary depending size of cutter used.
