Today was my first day of class though, and so I think there’s no point in bemoaning this Monday. Instead, I’m celebrating with a sweet cookie treat.
Sugar cookies, that is. Always in season. Always the one cookie you can count on to give your tastebuds a light and fluffy pick-me-up on any given day.
Adapted from Chocolate-Covered Katie’s multiple-serving version, this single-serving recipe makes three (because one little cookie is just not enough, especially when it’s healthy!).
a pinch of baking powder, salt, baking soda, and vanilla
2 heaping t milk
1 T stevia
2 t vegan butter (room temperature)
Optional: a little cinnamon (good for the blood sugar)
-Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet and set aside.
Note: for softer cookies, you can refrigerate these until they get very cold.
-Bake for 7-9 minutes. Be sure not to overbake sugar cookies though; they’re supposed to be soft.
Decorate as you like! I”m not a big fan of modified sugars and food dyes, so I opted for a healthy cream spread and good old chocolate chips, but feel free to get as cute and creative as you like.
