These simple cut out cookies have only a few ingredients and are free of dairy, eggs, and includes vegan friendly and gluten-free alternatives!
It just doesn’t feel like Christmas, unless we’ve spent at least one day baking up cookies. We love all the cookies, but my kids look forward to decorating cut out cookies the most. Over the years I’ve collected quite a few cookie cutters. I’m a sucker for after holiday sales too, so my collection grows each year. Like, do I really need another snowman cookie cutter? No, but at 75% off, why not?! 🙈
It’s been a busy season, but I finally busted out our big box of cookie cutters this past week and baked up a few dozen Christmas cookies. It’s a tradition we’ve had since the kids could hold a piping bag. Although I’ve managed to make our cookies with maple syrup instead of sugar, I haven’t found a good replacement for a simple powdered sugar icing for piping. You can opt to leave off the icing, but I included the easy recipe in the notes below if you’d like to give it a try.
We have so much fun decorating cookies and, as usual, now have several dozen cookies in the kitchen calling out to me!
I hope you enjoy these! Please let me know if you give them a try!Print
