Strawberry Sugar Cookie Bunnies {Vegan}

Thank you for sharing!

I love this recipe for strawberry sugar cookies. Not only are they shaped like bunnies, which is cute, but they sound awesome, too...

So, I’m getting ready for Easter, right? I mean, it’s a week out and I feel like I need to go ahead and have some things ready to go, so I’m not rushing around, last minute, trying to get our family brunch all set. The first place I go? My recipe box. And, as I’m thumbing through, I thought, “Well, here’s a great recipe for vegan sugar cookies that won’t spread, and icing that will.” So, I set it aside and kept going. But, something kept drawing me back to that recipe. Something was calling me–and that call? Strawberry Sugar Cookie Bunnies {Vegan}. I mean, imagine this: a bunny that tastes like summery-strawberry-yum. Isn’t that just the perfect Easter treat? It’s got my vote! LOL!

Now, if you have a bunny-shaped cookie cutter, you can use that. But, if you don’t have a cutter, you can use this free printable cookie stencil. Just print out the stencil and cut it out with a pair of scissors. Then lay the cutout on top of your rolled out cookie dough, and trace around it with a knife. If you’re going to make more than one batch of cookies, you may want to make your stencil out of something more stiff than copier paper–like a cereal box. And, I like to line mine with wax paper, to make it less stick-onto-the-dough…but, that’s totally up to you. Can you tell I’ve done this before? LOL!

Ingredients

  • Cookies
  • 1 cup coconut oil, room temperature
  • 6 tblspn aquafaba, bean juice, for those of you that don't speak latin
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tspn baking powder
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tspn strawberry flavoring
  • Icing
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1 tblspn coconut milk, like what you use in cereal is fine
  • 2 drops red food coloring
  • 1 tspn Strawberry flavoring

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Cream sugar and oil together.
  4. Add bean juice and flavoring. Mix thoroughly. Set aside.
  5. Mix flour and baking powder together well in a separate bowl.
  6. Add flour/baking powder mixture to the sugar mixture in 1/3 increments.
  7. Mix thoroughly.
  8. Dough will be crumbly, but turn it out anyway and simply work with it the way it is.
  9. Using a roller, roll out the dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Do not work any thinner than that or the dough will crumble apart when you try to transfer it to the baking sheet.
  10. Cut your cookies out and place them on the baking sheet.
  11. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. The cookies will not be brown, but you don’t want them to be. If they’re browned, they’ll be too crispy and they’ll fall apart when you try to ice them. So, just 10 minutes. Nothing more.
  12. Once you've got the cookies in the oven, make the icing. You'll want to let the cookies cool for a few minutes before you put the icing on, anyway.
  13. Mix your coconut milk, powdered sugar and ⅓ cup of your corn syrup together. If it's still too dry, add more corn syrup. (The mixture should be the consistency of white glue, or maybe a little thicker.)
  14. Add a couple drops each of food coloring and Strawberry flavoring. Stir.
  15. Taste the icing and add more color or flavor as you prefer.
  16. Using a small spatula or knife, spread the icing on your cooled bunnies.
  17. Enjoy!
