This butter cookie recipe is the same one my mom used every Christmas. (With the little exception that it’s been veganized.) I couldn’t imagine using any other recipe. This recipe creates delicious, mouth-watering butter cookies every time. It’s impossible to eat just one. Even my husband, who isn’t a cookie lover by any definition, can’t resist these. While these are sensational naked, I top these cookies with delicious cookie frosting… the same that my mother used (veganized). My sister tried these and agreed that they taste just like the non-vegan version. Woohoo!
Each un-frosted cookie is approximately 54 calories. Be careful though, it’s not hard to eat many in one sitting. Check out the nutritional information section at the bottom of this page.
