|Lemon cookies getting powdered sugar love.|
Lemon Powdered Sugar Cookies are straight forward- meaning fairly simple to make and are packed with citrus goodness. It's lemon meets sugar cookie. Chewy, moist, and soft, I had a little difficulty keeping my limit at trying out two. Of course, memory served that these were for Mom and hope that she loved them just as much as I enjoyed baking them.
That she did. Seeing as she received package this afternoon. :)
Vegan Lemon Powdered Sugar Cookies Ingredients and Preparation
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
zest of 1 large lemon (about 1 heaping tablespoon)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup apple sauce
2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 325 and prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper or oil.
Mix dry ingredients together- whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
Separately stir lemon zest, olive oil, applesauce, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
Combine wet into dry- don't overdo mixing.
In a bowl, pour powdered sugar.
Using a tablespoon or hands, form dough into balls and roll them into powdered sugar.
