  7. Place into preheated to 350 F/180 C degrees oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let sit on a baking sheet for 10 minutes to cool and firm up, then transfer to a cooling rack.
    Once the cookies are cooled, decorate them with royal icing. For vegan royal icing I mixed 1 cup of powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons of almond milk and 2 teaspoons of corn (or agave) syrup. If desired, use food coloring.
