So here I share with Vegan peeps and those who have Vegan loved ones in their lives:
Vegan Lemon Sugar Cookies
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2/3 cup sugar + 1/4 cup
- 1 cup earth balance or vegan margarine
- 1/3 cup lemon zest
- 1/4 cup silken tofu
- 3 tbsp lemon juice, preferably fresh
Preparation:Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl.
In a separate large bowl, beat together the 2/3 cup sugar, vegan margarine and lemon zest until smooth and fluffy. Add the tofu and lemon juice, and whip until well mixed, then add the flour, baking soda, and salt.
Add the flour mixture to the margarine mixture and stir until well combined.
Form dough into one-inch balls, and roll into the 1/4 cup sugar until well coated. Flatten slightly, and bake for 8-10 minutes, until lightly golden brown. ( I sprinkled sugar on top of the cookies when they were shaped, just before putting in the oven. This helped me control how sweet they would be.)
I will leave you with the felt heart guys my friend made...Happy Valentine's Day!
