Lightly adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction: Soft Cut-Out Sugar Cookies
Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
In a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients.
In a small bowl, mix together the flax or chia, and the water and set aside to thicken which will be almost instant if using chia, but take about 10 minutes if using flax.
In a third bowl beat the vegan butter and sugar together until creamy, about 3 minutes. Add the remaining wet ingredients including the flax or chia mixture, and mix well. Add the wet mixture into dry and combine until a dough is formed. I used Earth Balance vegan butter, but I have found that sometimes the moisture levels in vegan butters are different, so if your dough does not come together, add up to 1 tablespoon of water until the dough just comes together.
Add the powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons of non-dairy milk or water, and food colouring if using, to a bowl. Mix together. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons more non-dairy milk or water if needed to reach desired consistency. Let cookies cool completely before decorating.
