Dairy Free Sugar Cookie Recipe

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays! As a kid, our parents would always make it so special for us. We would get flowers from our Dad, our Mom would make heart shaped pancakes and we would exchange those cheesy little Valentines.

Even as an adult I love to give my galentines at work special Valentine treats and those cheesy little notes! Did your families have any special traditions?

As a wife I am learning fun ways to show my hubby I love him and if you know my man, he LOVES cookies! One of his favorite cookies is the sugar cookie. In our house, we are dairy “avoidant” so I had to figure out a recipe that did not have butter or milk and this is what I found!

It is a tasty one and SOOO easy to make! I hope you love making them as much as we did! Better yet, check out our sprinkle recipe and make your own to add to your cookies!

*Pro tip for making something sweet… use a bit of powdered sugar on your counter and rolling pin instead of flour! This helps you not get that powdery texture on your sugar cookies.

Happy Valentine’s Day!


Here’s a couple pictures we took while decorating. This is my sister, Hailee’s, two daughters helping me frost the cookies! And my little Ellie girl is napping!!
