photo by Ali R.
- Ready In:
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 cups butter
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 1⁄8 cup sugar, for topping
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- 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).
- Add vanilla and milk to butter/sugar mixture. (You can be flexible with the amount of vanilla you use).
- Combine salt, flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.
- Combine the dry and wet ingredients, using either a spatula or your hands. (Dough should be a little bit sticky at this point).
- 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.
- 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).
- Bake for 8-10 minutes, until bottom is lightly golden.

There is a common social norm that eggs are crucial for cookie making. Let me set the scene for you. My flatmate and I had no eggs, disaster. We asked ourselves what we had done wrong to deserve such an atrocitie. As always we turned to our most reliable friend known to you as Google. We came across this life changing recipe, after continuous hesitation and multiple trust issues we decided to embark on this adventure. Life is too short and hunger was creeping in, overpowering our souls. We stared forlorn at the cookies in the oven, no eggs? How could this work we asked ourselves, tears in our eyes and stomachs rumbling. To our surprise, these cookies have become a landmark of what it means to be human with all of the joys associated with this beautiful life. God gives us the obstacles he knows we could overcome, hard eggless obstacles for that matter. These cookies enabled us to get a little taste of heaven, my grandma is doing great by the way, if only these cookies could pierce through the veil of death so she could have tried them too. Amen. Thank you jmann_07. My flatmate and I had no idea what an eggless existence would be like, but now those chicken babies can get lost.
My son has an egg allergy. Every year I watch him watch family eat Christmas cookies. This year I was determined to find and make eggless ones. These cookies were delicious, and he had a blast using the cookie cutters. The cookies can be crispy or soft depending on how long you leave them in. Great recipe. Thank you.
I'll start with suggestions, refrigerate dough for easy handling and leave in oven for the lower time if you want your cookies to be on the softer side, just crispy around the edges . overall- I thought it was an awesome sugar cookie recipe- eggless or not, even without my vanilla adaptions (see below)! I hate sugar cookies that taste floury or like butter cookies- I thought these cookies were light, sugary and beautiful. The extra vanilla is a nice touch and it was the only thing I adjusted as the recipe suggested, to taste. I blended three varieties of vanilla – vanilla beans, regular vanilla extract, and a Latino version of vanilla extract from the Dominican Republic.
