Ingredients

  • 3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp corn flour
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup vegan butter (2 sticks)
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • Red or pink food coloring (optional. You can also use half a teaspoon of beet powder instead)
  • 3 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • Sprinkles for topping

Instructions

  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.
  • In another bowl using electric beaters, or in the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together the sugar and butter until it is all light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally to ensure everything is mixed together.
  • Add enough food coloring to get a bright pink color, vanilla extract, lemon juice and the non-dairy milk. Whisk again till mixed.
  • Add the flour, mix with a spatula first, and then with the electric beaters until the dough starts to pull away from the sides.
  • Lightly spray an 8 by 8 inch baking pan with oil.
  • Turn out the cookie dough into the pan and press down with your fingers to make a very even, smooth layer.
  • Press sprinkles into the dough, as many as desired.
  • Using a sharp knife, lightly score the dough in the shape and size of bars you'd like.
  • Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven for 35 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let the pan cool on a rack. After it has cooled, cut all the way through the scores you made earlier to cut into bars.
