Vegan Sugar Cookies

Dessert, Vegan

I baked these wonderfully delicious Vegan Sugar Cookies this weekend.  They were tasty and crunchy, and they had a delicious vanilla icing.  These cookies were also quick and easy to make. My kitchen smelled like an old fashioned bakery.

I can find all of my baking ingredients from Whole Foods MarketWegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market.  They have an excellent assortment.
