optional but delicious
Cream together butter and sugar in a large bowl using a hand mixer or stand mixer.
Beat in applesauce and vanilla extract (and orange extract if you choose.)
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and arrowroot powder.
Fold the flour mixture into the butter and sugar bowl.
Mix together well. I use a hand mixer.
Divide dough into 2 or 3 sections. Form into discs and wrap in plastic wrap or parchment paper. Place in fridge for at 2 hours, or overnight.
Pre-heat oven to 325F degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Take one disc of dough out of the fridge and roll out to about 1/4-inch thickness. I like to roll out dough between two pieces of parchment paper to avoid the rolling pin sticking.
Cut with cookie cutters.
Place the raw cookies onto the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. The cookies should be just barely starting to brown on the bottom.
Repeat with the other discs of the dough.
Let the cookies cool.
For the icing, whisk together the powdered sugar, plant milk, and vanilla extract until the sugar is totally dissolved. If it's too dry, add a little more milk. Too wet, add more powdered sugar.
Frost and decorate!
