I don't know about you, but I love citrus fruits. Lemons, grapefruits, limes...I just can't get enough!
So when I heard about these lemon cookies, I just had to give them a go!
They are tangy yet sweet, and oh so lemon-y! And ever so easy to make!
Next I want to try these but replacing the lemon with grapefruit, just to see what happens!
Recipe adapted from here
Makes 12 large cookies
1/2C vegan margarine
1Tbsp cornstarch mixed with 3Tbsp water
1Tbsp fresh lemon zest
Juice from 1/2 a medium sized lemon
Pinch of salt
1/4tsp baking powder
1/4tsp baking soda
1 1/2C plain flour
Cream together the margarine, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice & zest and salt. Add the flour and baking powders and mix until everything is well combined. The mixture will be quite stiff.
Spoon onto baking sheets lined with grease-proof paper using an ice cream scoop and bake at 180/350 for 15-20mins, until the edges are slightly browned.
Remove from the oven and while still on the baking sheet sift powdered sugar over the top of the cookies, and be as generous as you like! After a few minutes on the baking sheet, transfer onto a wire rack to finish cooling and serve.
The lovely @jessicahilzey on Instagram tried out the recipe and loved it!
