Can anyone recommend some recipes for soft frosted sugar cookies. I want to make some X-mas cookies this year, but we don't like hard cookies.

Thank you for any suggestions!

Oooh, I hope suggestions come! I'm with you on the soft-are-better-than-hard sugar cookies thing.

I really like the recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking. It also has a really good recipe for royal frosting.

I don't suppose you'd be willing to share the recipes?

Or, I found this: http://www.vegan-nutritionista.com/vega ... cipes.html
What's different in the original?

I thought the key to softer cookies was just baking them a bit less long.

I like the buttery lemon biscuits from Vegan With a Vengeance (in the book they're called cookies, but my rule of thumb is that it's a cookie if you blob spoons of it onto a baking tray, and a biscuit if you roll out the dough and use cutters).

I always use Vegan Heartland's recipe. They actually get better after a few days, which makes them good for crazy holiday baking times.

I think the texture of the pistachio rosewater cookies in v'con is just like the soft sugar cookies I used to love from the grocery store. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm pretty sure you could easily modify the recipe to be a lovely soft vanilla sugar cookie. But I don't think you could make cut outs with them.

Any other suggestions? We don't bake often so we don't have any cookie specific cookbooks.

If you frost them they will also soften up as the cookie absorbs some of the moisture from the icing. I always make the cookies and ice them then let them sit all night before eating any of them.

I made Carly's (from A Profound Hatred of Meat) frosted sugar cookies this year, and they were a glorious revelation. I underbaked them a tiny bit to make them soft enough (and they did soften some more after being iced and sitting overnight). They are the best sugar cookies I have made as a vegan. They were identical to the (non-vegan) sugar cookies I ate growing up, and they made me so very happy.

I know this is late, but perhaps it will help someone for next year. Or whenever! I liked them so much I might make them for Valentines Day!
