growing up every Xmas me and my mom would bake sugar cookies with my Nana who is no longer with us (R.I.P.)
ever since my mom has made them every year but they are obviously not vegan.

i asked my mom to send me the recipe to see if i could veganize it but looking at the actual recipe im not sure it's worth the effort and maybe i should just use the Isa/Terry sugar cookie recipe. i mean a sugar cookie is a sugar cookie at the end of the day, right?

any thoughts on how to replace the eggs?

(please note this recipe makes like 300 cookies so that's why the measurements are so large)

this is what my mom sent me:

1 lb butter
2 lb sugar=4 cups
8 eggs
small bottle of vanilla=2 tbsp
8 tsp baking powder
7-8 cups of flour (I usually use the 8)

If you quarter the recipe to make a more normal amount, you'd only be left with two eggs, which you could probably just leave out (or add a little tapioca starch, cornstarch or arrowroot for binding, mixed with a little water). And then use Earth Balance or a mix of half Earth balance and half shortening for the butter.

you think there would be enough moisture leaving out the eggs? looking at the Isa/Terry recipe there is milk in it.

Well if there isn't you could just add some milk or water a teeny bit at a time until the dough feels right!

yeah, starches work well in sugar cookies. you'll need about 1/2 cup of liquid to replace the eggs.

oh. sorry. yeah. for the 1/4. (eggs provide about 1/4 cup of liquid to a recipe.)
