Vegan Pretty Pink Swirl Kool-Aid Sugar Cookies

I wanted something different for dessert this Shabbos and for whatever reason, my mind went to the stash of Kool Aid that's been sitting in the cupboard here for over a year.  And the only flavour of Kool Aid that counts, as far as I'm concerned, is Strawberry.

Feel free to make these with any colour you want!

Anyway, an image of these swirly cookies swirled into my mind and I knew exactly how I was going to make them.

All I needed was a decent sugar-cookie recipe that didn't rely overly much on butter.  I've used a couple of pareve sugar cookie recipes in the past, including this one from Couldn't be Parve, which uses margarine, and these ones which use shortening. 

But here in Israel, I don't like the taste of the margarine, there are no "healthier" margarines available, and shortening simply doesn't exist.  My substitute has become coconut oil, or (sometimes) half and half margarine and coconut oil.  So I started looking around for recipes... and found another one from Couldn't be Parve looked absolutely perfect. 

I wasn’t consciously looking for a vegan recipe, though I was delighted by the idea that we could nibble on the dough to my heart’s content!

(Vegan goodness? demerara sugar, coconut oil, Kool Aid, coconut milk…)

This recipe uses coconut oil and coconut milk, which I was leery of but
