Vegan Soft Sugar Cookies

"I was trying to come up with a recipe that resembled those Granny B's sugar cookies. You know, those soft ones with the pink frosting? I think these are similar but even if they're not exactly the same, they're still good!"

Ready In:




  • Cream margarine and sugar for about 5 minutes until fluffy.
  • Add mashed tofu and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the mixture.
  • You can either roll out the dough and use cookie cutters or make cookie dough balls and flatten the dough with your hand onto an ungreased cookie sheet. You want the dough to be almost the thickness you want your cookie because these don't rise much.
  • Bake for around 10 mins in 350 degree oven.
  • Note: You might need to adjust the flour a bit if the dough feels too wet. Also, these cookies aren't super sweet. If you like them that way, or if you aren't frosting them, you might want to add 2 more tablespoons sugar.

    These turned out amazing!!! My husband really enjoyed them and the new neighbor did as well!! I really didn't want to open a thing of tofu for just a couple tablespoons and we really weren't in the mood to eat the left over so I just used the same amount of applesauce which I had open & it turned out great!! Rolled them in cinnamon sugar & they are almost gone. Thanks!!!!

    I made this recipe and then pressed it into a nine inch cake pan for one really big cookie, which worked out great. <br/>Will be my go-to sugar cookie for sure--thanks!

    These cookies were quite the HIT!!! I ended up using regular tofu (blended till smooth with a touch of water) instead of the silken tofu, and it worked just fine!!<br/>I made a double batch and they were gobbled up lickety split at the small party I went to!

    This is a GREAT recipe! Easy to make and amazing taste! (tofu is really a surprising ingredient!) It was my first time making vegan cookies and I am glad that it was successful!
