coconut sugar cookies

Delicious vegan sugar cookies made with coconut oil. These are perfect for cut-outs!

One of the best things about making vegan cookies is that you can eat all the dough you want without any salmonella concern. You can bet the three of us girls were licking the spoons. And your dairy free friends will have happy tummies.

Reindeer sandwiches

A heart shaped cookie cutter turns a regular old Pb&J sandwich into an adorable little reindeer sandwich. Pretzels for antlers, chocolate chip eyes, and a red M&M nose make this reindeer as cute as they are tasty. The kids will love them and request them every day until New Years! Make them for school, for a fun lunch at home, or for a kid friendly dish to pass at any holiday party.
