Ginger Icebox Cookies (Vegan)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

From Southern Living. Times given don't include refrigeration or freezing. Edited 12/10/08: I just made these with the following changes - Reduce sugar by 1/4, use whole wheat pastry flour for 1/2 the flour, and I skipped the water. I am not sure what purpose the water served, but removing it made a firmer dough, especially because I reduced the sugar (which took out some of the dry ingredients which would've only made the dough softer!).
