Vegan Vanilla Sugar Cookies [Egg / dairy-free]

Last time I said I am on a spring cleaning spree, right?  It began with things that had been neglected due to work and blogging, and then the cleaning bug bit me so hard, I took on the computer.  Well.  That was just the beginning.  The bug is still there.  It has taken over the blog.  And that precisely is one of the reasons why you are seeing a cookie recipe for the second time!

To clarify further, here is how the cleaning spree takes over the site:

I am making efforts to streamline things on the site, and that includes beginning things at the beginning.  Ya, ya…. very much like the song from ‘Sound of Music’!  When it comes to baking, cookies are considered the easiest to start with. Last time I made savoury herb cookies, so it seems right to feature sweet cookies this time, and as usual we begin with the simplest kind. I have been baking lots of vanilla sugar cookies lately, at the slightest pretext. Last week presented another excuse. I needed something sweet to carry with me to Delhi as I was going to attend a wedding, and it is customary to take sweets.  Cookies were a sensible choice for many reasons. I am going to list them here so that it will entice you to try this recipe. I am being devious, outright.  I also made a huge batch of cashew barfis, and they have always been a hit.  What is not to like about cashews?  But that is another story, and it has already been told.  Today is all about cookies;

Why should you make my vanilla cookies?

How to make vegan vanilla sugar cookies

Vanilla Sugar Cookies | Vegan | Dairy-free | @


1. One batch makes about twenty-five cookies, and four batches make a century. Yes, these are done very quick!

2. These last long. Mine lasted ten days, and they stayed crisp all along.

3. Many of my blogger-friends have tried it, and given me positive feedback, but the best feedback was when L’ll Rehan, Lalita’s young boy, ate one, and did not stop till his mum hid the cookies, and when my relatives in Delhi did not realize that these were vegan or homemade.

For the recipe, my dear readers, you and I must pay a visit to Susmitha, a sweet-natured, peppy, friend of mine. She has been a vegan for over eight years, is also an animal activist. She is a very talented crafts person and retails through etsy. You might remember the ragi and jaggery recipe she did as a guest post for me.

I would love it if you accompany me. She really has no idea who is coming along with me, so its going to be a surprise! Come with me, and be quick. The cookies are packed and ready, and I am already late, so we have to hurry! I will tell you more about Sush, and the cookies when we get there.  Quick, hit on this link!
