Vegan Chocolate Sugar Cookies Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 40 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 10 minutes


Chocolate Sugar Cookies:

3/4 cup Vegan Butter (170g)

1 cup White Granulated Sugar (200g)

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

2 cups All Purpose Flour (250g)

3/4 cup Cocoa Powder (63g) Unsweetened

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/4 tsp Salt

5 Tbsp Soy Milk 1 at a time, only as much as needed


2 cups Powdered Sugar (240g)

2 Tbsp Vegan Butter

2 Tbsp Soy Milk

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Red Food Coloring Optional




1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

2Add the vegan butter and sugar to the bowl of an electric mixer and cream together. Add vanilla and continue to whisk.

3Sift the flour and cocoa into a mixing bowl and add baking soda and salt.

4Add dry ingredients to wet and mix in by hand until crumbly. Add soy milk (or other non dairy milk) 1 Tbsp at a time until it forms a big ball of cookie dough that will stick together if you roll some of it into a ball. You may not need all 5 Tbsp of soy milk, this will entirely depend on the brand of vegan butter that you use.

5Dust a baking mat with cocoa powder and transfer the ball of cookie dough onto the mat. Roll out with a rolling pin to 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick and cut out your cookies. If you just want round cookies, you can skip this step and just roll them into balls, using the bottom of a glass dipped in cocoa powder to press down on them to flatten into neat round shapes.

6Place the cut out cookies onto a parchment lined baking tray.

7Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

8Allow the cookies to cool completely before frosting.

9Add all frosting ingredients except for the red food coloring into an electric mixer bowl and starting at slow speed gradually increase speed until perfectly smooth. Your frosting should be quite thick, yet still spreadable. If it's too thick add a drop or two more soy milk, if it's too thin, add some more powdered sugar.

10Separate the frosting into two bowls. Add a drop of red food coloring to the one bowl and mix it in, which will create a pink color. Add a few more drops to the second bowl creating a darker pink or red.

11Spread the frosting on the cookies and then top with vegan sprinkles or other decorations.
