Tomorrow is the last day of school before the holidays for my kids. Of course the last day usually calls for parents to bring in multiple treats! Being vegan means my children can not partake in most of the food. So I decided to make them some vegan sugar cookies! I even got a little bit creative and shaped them like eggs and decorated them with icing. Of course I tried a couple and the were absolutely delicious! Super easy to make and we got a decent amount out of one recipe. The one recipe not doubled made 16 large size cookies! Really that is not too bad at all. I really hope they all enjoy them and are happy with my substitution! I thought this was a perfect thing to share for #veganwednesday hosted by @heart-to-heart because being vegan means making substitutions. It means even though we can't do the usual holiday stuff like painting eggs, we xan come uo with new and exciting things!
