It’s been many years since I got the “can you make cookies for a school event” email. Oh I have missed it 😉 Mostly homemade treats are not allowed in schools here and more so, are not anymore for celebrations (which, really I am OK with….otherwise it is like cupcakes every week!). But this was for a special event at Kindergarten, The Three Piggy Opera, and after the concert everyone headed over for cookies and Mama presents!
Classic Egg Free Sugar Cookies
- 4 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp fine sea salt
- 1½ sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 1½ cups granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp Ener-G Egg Replacer + ¼ cup warm water
- 1½ tsp pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°, line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together, set aside.
Whisk warm water into Ener-G, let rest.
In a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in Ener-G mixture, and vanilla. Add flour mixture in thirds, beating in well. If your dough is not coming together, you can add in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, while beating, until the dough pulls together into a smooth stiff dough.
Roll out a bit of the dough to your desired thickness, cut out and place on sheets. Repeat with scraps, rolling back out.
I baked my large circles for 10 to 12 minutes, until set and with a whisper of a golden color. Let cool, then transfer to a cooling rack.
Frost once cooled as desired.
How many cookies depends on your thickness and size of cookies. I made 36.
