I would like to make some roll-out cookies ( to use with cookie cutters) that are dairy-free. Can I just substitute margarine? Has anyone had any luck with this?

Ginger bread cookies are a tradition in my family, so here is a basic Ginger-Bread Cookie recipe. It's dairy and egg free, and quite tasty!!! :P

enjoy!


INGREDIENTS

* 1 cup white sugar
* 1 cup shortening
* 1 cup dark molasses
* 2 teaspoons baking soda
* 1 teaspoon ground ginger
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 4 cups all-purpose flour

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening until smooth. Stir in the molasses. Combine the baking soda, ginger,cinnamon and 3 3/4 cups of the flour; blend into the molasses mixture. Add more flour if necessary to make dough stiff enough to roll out. Use remaining flour to dust rolling surface. Roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with cookie cutters.
3. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven. remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.
:P :P :P

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

Is the dough easy to roll? I want to make this with some 3 and 4 year olds.

It's a pretty manageable dough, but I find that if I cool it in the refrigerator for at least an hour (but usually, I'll just leave it overnight), it's even easier to roll. Doesn't tend to stick to the rolling pin or surface as much...

Enjoy!

I bought 3 D Christmas cutouts at a store in Bedford last week and the lady there gave me this wonderful recipe for Sugar Cookies and ginger bread cookies. I mentioned to her that I loved the cutouts but I haven't had luck with the sugar cookies because usually calls for butter which has milk in it. She gave me this recipe which calls for shortening instead of butter and said she made 200 of them last year for her husband's work. I figure they must be good and plan on making them this year. I don't have a kitchen Aid but I'm sure that is not a problem. Cheers

Sugar Cookies
In your Kitchen Aid beat: 2/3c. crisco shortening...3/4c. sugar...1T. + 1t. milk (I'm sure you can use water or soy milk)...1t.vanilla
Add: 2c. flour...1 1/2t. baking powder....1/4t. salt
Mix well...make 2 balls...flatten...wrap in saran...refrigerate 1hr.
Roll 1/2 disc at a time on lightly floured board.

Bake 350* 7 - 9 minutes
