Vegan Snickerdoodles

Vegan Snickerdoodles

Makes 45 cookies

Snickerdoodles are just sugar cookies rolled in cinnamon sugar. Try adding ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg or allspice to the cinnamon sugar to boost flavor.
Cookie Dough
  • 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 stick (4 oz.) vegan margarine, softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup vanilla soymilk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Cinnamon Sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 Tbs. ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. To make Cookie Dough: Whisk together flour, cornstarch, and baking powder in bowl. Beat margarine in separate bowl with electric mixer until soft. Add sugar, and beat until fluffy. Beat in soymilk and vanilla extract 30 seconds or until smooth. Add flour mixture, and beat 30 seconds or until smooth.

3. To make Cinnamon Sugar: Combine sugar and cinnamon on large plate.

4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in Cinnamon Sugar, and place 1½ inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies look dry on tops and are lightly browned on bottoms. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Store in airtight container.

Hi. I followed your recipe and directions to a T. WHAT HAPPENED!? :( Your recipe didnt yield 45 cookies. It came out to about 28 maybe 30. :/ They didnt flatten out as shown in comparison to your photo of Snickerdoodles. They were just balls. lol Will some kindly let me know what went wrong? They did taste good I guess. They tasted like small little sugar and cinnamon biscuits. Thanks for the recipe, it was nice of you to share. I dont think I'll be using this recipe again. Oh well. :)

These turned out really yummy but the one thing I had trouble with was the amount of cinnamon sugar I barely use like half of it and that's me like going overload and with the baking time I baked them like seven extra minutes

Wow! How exciting! I had no idea you could make cookies without any sugar!

substitude sugar with natural sugar or date sugar use wheat flour or another kind vs white refined. I never use cooking spray. use the vegan butter. when using natural sugars use less than refined.

the dough doesn't contain sugar?

Just made these for my meat-eater relatives. I didn't tell them the cookies were vegan until they were all down the hatch! They loved them! This is going in my personal cookbook. An absolutely amazing recipe! Thank you!

Thank goodness I found this recipe! It was super quick and easy to make and my kids didn't leave a speck! I didn't have cornstarch so I used a whole 2 cups of flour and added 1/2 teaspoon of cream of tartar as someone else here suggested...SCRUMPTIOUS!!!

No. Snickerdoodles are not just sugar cookies rolled in cinnamon-sugar. They are made distinctive, both in texture and in flavor, by the use of cream of tartar amongst the leavening. Without the cream of tartar, they lack snickerdoodle's lemony tang...and they aren't snickerdoodles at all.

These turned out really yummy! Perfect crunchy outside and chewy middle. They didn't last long at game night!
