Stars Shortbread Cookies

Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 cups dairy free butter softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar organic
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract organic
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch non GMO organic
  • red and blue sugar sprinkles natural vegan options

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. This gives a pretty nice edge and keeps the excess sugar from going onto the cookie sheet.
  • If you do not 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.
