Delicious Dairy-Free Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 19mins
Recipe by Jen in Victoria

I found this recipe on the Crisco website and was happy to have found a recipe that doesn't use butter or margarine as my son is allergic to all milk products. This is a delicious cookie and perhaps even better than ones made with butter! So easy to make as well.

These Dairy-free sugar cookies were amazing. I've been looking for a delicious alternative since finding out my son is lactose-intolerant.. although I made some minor changes to the recipe.. I used two sticks of earth balance butter and almond milk. I rolled them into balls then patted them down to about 1/4" think and baked until the bottoms edges were a bit brown. About 8-9 mins. I also added chocolate chips to the last batch and they came out scrumptious.. definitely my go to cookie recipe ?? Very delicious
