Vegan Lemon Cookies | Soft | Sublime

What should Vegan Lemon Cookies taste like?  We think they should be soft, fluffy, decadent, sweet (but not too sweet!), and tart (but not too tart!).  Our lemon cookie recipe fits all of those points.  They’re pretty much the best cookies we’ve ever made, and I’d say they are totally sublime.  And trust me, we’ve got some really good cookie recipes, so that says a lot!

Preparing Soft & Delicious Vegan Lemon Cookies Is Easy

We made these cookies so easily.  Here is what you’ll need to make them:

  • 2 lemons
  • 1/3 cup of aquafaba (the magical juice from a can of chickpeas)
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter (or alternative Vegan butter)
  • 1 cup organic sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup organic confectioner’s sugar (if you’re making the frosting)

Mix these dry ingredients together into a medium-large bowl:  flour, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate large bowl cream the butter and sugar together.  Add the vanilla, non-dairy milk, zest from 2 lemons, and juice from 1 lemon (juice from the other lemon is used in the frosting).

In a small bowl whisk the aquafaba for 30-60 seconds until it’s frothy, and then add it to the wet mix.  Mix well and then gradually stir the flour mix into the wet mix.

Spoon the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, silicone mat, or cooking spray.  Bake at 350 degrees for ~9 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let them cool on their baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

What About The Frosting?

These cookies are good without the frosting, but the frosting does take them to the next level.  It’s a super simple frosting that just needs 1 cup of organic confectioner’s sugar and juice from 1 lemon.  Simply stir them together until you get a frosting consistency.  The frosting gives these cookies a sweet tangy kick, and it’s so delicious.

Lemon Cookies Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium-large bowl mix 3 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda, and 1/4 tsp salt.
  • In a large mixing bowl mix 1/4 cup coconut butter (or Vegan butter) with 1 cup organic sugar. Stir until mixed well.
  • In the large bowl add these other wet ingredients and mix: zest from 2 lemons, juice from 1 lemon (juice from other lemon is used in frosting), 1 tsp vanilla, and 3/4 cup non dairy milk.
  • in a small bowl whisk 1/3 cup aquafaba for about a minute until it's frothy. Then stir it into the large bowl with the other wet ingredients.
  • Gradually add the dry flour mixture into the large bowl with the wet ingredients. Stir to combine. The dough should not seem very thin or very thick. If it seems too thick, add a little bit more non-dairy milk. If it seems too thin add a little more flour.
  • On a baking sheet use a silicone mat, parchment paper, or cooking spray and spoon clumps of the dough onto it. We could fit 9 cookies per sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes. Remove and let them rest on their baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Lemon Frosting Instructions

  • Combine juice from 1 lemon with 1 Cup of organic confectioner's sugar. Mix well until a frosting consistency is made.
  • Apply the frosting as you wish with a piping bag (we just cut a small corner off of a ziploc bag), or spread it on with a spatula, knife, or spoon.
