Dairy Free Rolled Sugar Cookies {Valentine's Day}


My toddler and I were invited to a Valentine’s Day playdate/lunch and we signed up to take cookies. However one of the kids is allergic to dairy and my daughter is allergic to soy. I needed to come up with a dairy free, soy free, semi healthy cookie. And I did, and it’s delicious! I also made one in a Hidden Veggie form which I think is actually even more delicious (yes I’m serious!), you can find that recipe here.

A delicious version of the Rolled Sugar Cookie that is dairy free and soy free.
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar (I used organic cane sugar)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp butter extract
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt (optional)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  1. Mix the coconut oil (make sure it is softened or melted completely) with the sugar in a mixer until smooth. Add egg, vanilla, and butter extract continuing to mix on med-high.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients together. Slowly add the dry into the mixer and mix together.
  3. This mixture is very crumbly so most likely you will need to do a lot of kneading by hand. If it’s way too dry, add a tiny bit of almond milk.
  4. Continue to knead the dough until you can form it into a large ball. Cover with saran wrap and put in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. When you are ready to roll the dough out, make sure your surface and rolling pin are floured. You will need to knead the dough for a little while in order to get it soft enough to roll, it will be crumbly at first.
  6. Heat oven to 350 and bake for 7-9 minutes, depending on your oven. Check at 6 minutes. 7 was the magic number for my gas oven.

This recipe actually makes a lot of cookies. I made them of various sizes but it still made a lot! The cookies did not spread at all while cooking and they cooked beautifully. They taste very buttery/rich – delicious!

Make sure you wait until they are completely cooled before icing them. I always find this hard as I want to ice them as soon as they are out of the oven!


5 tbsp almond milk

4 cup icing sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp butter extract

Mix all in electric mixer until smooth. You may need to add a tiny bit of milk or add more icing sugar until you get the consistency that you want for your icing.

I then divided mine into 3 bowls and used food coloring to color them.
