Over the holidays, I really wanted to prepare some cut-out cookies, but I was having a really hard time finding anything that was healthy, vegan, and cuttable. Luckily, I stumbled across something that I could tweak to become a healthier version and was able to create some fun, holiday sugar cookies...without the guilt!
These came out really great, and while you don't necessarily have to cool the dough before rolling out, though cooling will make it a little easier to work with. I used raw nuts, raisins and cocao nibs to decorate them. If you haven't discovered cocao nibs, I suggest you give them a try. They are crushed up pieces of cocao beans, and when added to baked goods, bring in a nice chocolaty flavor without any additives. They are a little bitter alone, but pair perfectly in sweet baked goods, like this recipe.
