Being a vegetarian, it's always difficult to find recipes, especially for baking, that retain the texture and taste without eggs. I found a recipe for sugar cookies on recipezaar a few months ago, and every time I used it, I would tweak it just a little. Over time, it has developed into this awesome recipe which results in fluffy, light, sugar cookies - emphasis on the fluffy. (I'm not a huge fan of flat, hard cookies.) Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Combine butter and sugar in a bowl, and mix until it gets lighter and fluffier. (Either microwave the butter for about 45 seconds or make sure it's soft enough to whisk).
  3. Add vanilla and milk to butter/sugar mixture. (You can be flexible with the amount of vanilla you use).
  4. Combine salt, flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.
  5. Combine the dry and wet ingredients, using either a spatula or your hands. (Dough should be a little bit sticky at this point).
  6. Add extra flour as needed until dough becomes less sticky (I used about 3 T.) You don't want dough to be too tough or sticky.
  7. Form 12 equal-sized balls, flatten to about 1/2 - 2/3 inch in thickness. Coat one side with sugar. (Lay about 1/8 Cup sugar on flat surface and lay each flattened ball of dough on it, pressing gently).
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until bottom is lightly golden.
