Iced Lemon Drop Cookies

Iced Lemon Drop Cookies

These are not like any ordinary lemon cookie.  They came out so perfectly and actually tasted like little cakes.  I kept them in the fridge and they were cool and refreshing.  They freeze well also.  Easy to make and delicious, even without the icing!!  Enjoy!

  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 2 t lemon juice
  • 1/3 c nondairy milk
  • 1/2 c vegan butter
  • 1 3/4 c flour
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1 T ground flax mixed with 2 T water
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t salt
  • for the icing
  • 1 t lemon juice
  • 1 T nondairy milk
  • 3/4 c powdered sugar
  • shredded coconut – optional

Preheat to 350.  Stir 2 t lemon juice into milk and let sit 5 minutes.  Beat vegan butter. Add half the flour, sugar, flax with water, baking powder, baking soda, zest and milk mixture.  Beat until well combined.  Beat in remaining flour.  Drop teaspoon size balls onto lightly oiled baking sheet.  Bake 10-12 minutes.  Let cool.

For the icing – combine lemon juice, milk and sugar.  Spoon onto cooled cookies.  Sprinkle shredded coconut over top if desired.
