Sugar Cookies for Everyone

Sugar Cookies for Everyone
This recipe is sweetly nostalgic, but also designed to be incredibly versatile! To make a gluten-free variation, just use Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour instead of all-purpose flour. To make a vegan variation, use vegan butter, opt for granulated cane sugar instead of honey, and add 1/2 cup melted coconut oil instead of egg.

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
