Fluffy Sugar Cookies (makes ~12)

Don’t you love when you can make something that you loved before you’re food allergies in a way that makes it okay for you to eat? Even better, don’t you love when that something is just as good, if not better, than the kind you remember? These sugar cookies are reminiscent of the ones my grandma used to make and I actually think they are better than any sugar cookies I could buy at the grocery store!  Here’s how to make them:


1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

2 tbsp almond milk

2 tsp vanilla extract or imitation vanilla

1 cup flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

a pinch of salt

3 tbsp of flour

1/8 cup sugar



1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Start off by melting the butter for about 45 seconds and mix it with the sugar in a large bowl until it’s lighter and thicker.

3. Add in almond milk, sugar, flour, vanilla, baking powder and pinch of salt until dough is formed. You may need to add that extra 3 tbsp of flour if it’s still sticky.

4. Place the sugar in a small bowl. Form about a quarter-sized ball and roll it in the sugar, then place it on a greased baking sheet. Should make about 12 balls.

5. Once all the balls are on the baking sheet, press them with a fork and sprinkle a little sugar over the top. Bake them for 10-12 minutes until the bottom is golden brown.
