31 Jan Valentine’s Day Eggless Sugar Cookies
Sugar cookies are the perfect holiday baking staple, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. Just like their traditional counterpart, eggless sugar cookies can be customized in almost any shape and decorated with icing and sprinkles.
Well-made sugar cookies are light, airy, and delicious. They are easy to bake and contain staple ingredients like butter, sugar or powdered sugar, flour, vanilla, baking powder, and salt.
Regardless of your reasons for baking eggless, we’ve got you covered. We’re linking to four different versions of the classic eggless sugar cookie recipe below. Give one a try and bake up a delicious treat for your Valentine.
Veena likes her sugar cookies light and airy. She insists that an important part of getting them to come out that way is using a good mixer to cream the batter. Once they are ready to go in the oven, she uses a light baking tray with parchment paper spread over it.
She cautions not to overbake the cookies. They bake fast. Veena takes them out right before the ten-minute mark because she finds that slightly underbaked is better than overbaked.
Finally, Veena includes a simple recipe for eggless sugar frosting using powdered sugar, milk, corn syrup, and vanilla extract.
Oriana of Mommy’s Home Cooking includes cream cheese in her recipe for tender and buttery sugar cookies. She prefers to concentrate on the presentation. She leaves the cookie dough in the fridge for a while before cutting them to create crisp shapes with well-defined edges. Oriana likes to cut the dough on parchment paper or a well-floured surface if parchment paper is not available. The dough must be rolled out evenly to about 1/8 of an inch thick.
Manali bakes sugar cookies specifically for the holidays. She cuts her cookies into festive shapes. Manali then decorates them with vibrant eggless royal icing for a beautiful result. Finally, she suggests adding nonpareil sprinkles and sanding sugar for a finishing touch.
The recipe from Madhuram’s Eggless Cooking is all about simplicity. It calls for classic sugar cookie ingredients and adds a bit of white vinegar. She notes the dough is loose, so she refrigerates the dough, rolls it out, and then refrigerates it again. She claims the result is cookies with “the perfect texture.” She uses colored sugar to decorate her cookies.
