Ingredients

Instructions

  • Mix the flour, organic powdered sugar and organic cornstarch together. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl beat the vegan butter until creamy.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients and almond extract. Mix well.
  • Separate the dough into two balls. Wrap in plastic wrap and slightly flatten.
  • Place in the refrigerator for one hour.
  • Take one of the balls out of the refrigerator.
  • Place the ball onto a cookie sheet and roll out to about 1/3" thick.
  • Cut stars close to each other on the cookie sheet but not touching.
  • Remove the excess dough between and around the stars. You will reuse this dough.
  • Sprinkle the stars with the colored sugar before baking.
  • I placed a smaller star on top of the cut out star and sprinkled sugar inside the cutout. This gives a pretty nice edge and keeps the excess sugar from going onto the cookie sheet.
  • If you don't have a smaller star cookie cutter just sprinkle on the sugar.
  • Bake at 350˚ for 12 minutes.
  • Cook on wire rack. Repeat the process until all of the dough is used.
