I’ve been enjoying playing with vegan baking and cookies are such a great way to experiment! I was in the mood for something lemony and as I was whipping up this batter I thought ‘how about lavender lemon!’
Ta-da!!! Lavender Lemon Cookies 😀 They are light and chewy and delicious and I am having a hard time not eating ALL of them!!!
These are also super fast to make so they are perfect for making any time you are in the mood for a treat ❤
•½ cup Earth Balance vegan butter (or other vegan butter)
•1 cup sugar
•1tsp vanilla extract
•1Tbs lemon zest
•1Tbs lemon juice
•1¾ cups flour
•1Tbs dried lavender flowers
•¼tsp baking powder
•⅛tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350°
Mix first 6 ingredients together until smooth.
Add flour, flowers, baking powder, & baking soda and mix again.
Scoop tablespoon sized pieces of dough onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. (Seriously 2 inches…these will spread and touch if too close!)
Bake for 12-17 minutes, or until they begin to brown. **They will take closer to the 17 minutes if you use the airbake cookie sheets** Basically, you just want them to start to brown!
Cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet then move to a cooling rack.
Eat. Enjoy. Love.
