Vegan Lemon Sugar Cookies

Vegan Lemon Sugar Cookies

Christmas is the time for decorating biscuits! We end up with tins of them; all ready for family and friends dropping by. Molly loves this time of year; and seems to really enjoy having biscuits she's decorated to eat. It's a lovely family tradition to start - you really only need a few sprinkles to get going!

These are a lovely crisp cookie - we roll them quite thick (greedy) but if you prefer thin then they work that way too! The recipe is straightforward so a good one to start the little ones with.  The dough really does need to be chilled for an hour so do bear that in mind.


3/4 cup Pure Sunflower Margarine - any diary free margarine will do

1 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp Organ egg replacer (plus 4 tbs water)

1 tsp vanilla

2 1/2 cups plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

Finely chopped zest of two lemons

1 tsp lemon extract


Mix together the margarine, sugar, egg replacer and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Blend in flour, baking powder, salt and water.

Chill for 1 hour

Preheat oven to 400° F/200° C

Roll out dough to 1/8 inch thick (we do 1/4 but we're greedy) and cut out into desired shapes and decorate as you like.

Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 6-8 minutes or until light brown.
