Easy, soft, and delicious vegan sugar cookies packed with lemon and lavender flavor.
- 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
- 3 Tbsp warm water
- 1 cup room temperature vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp lemon extract
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp dried culinary lavender
- 1 Tbsp corn starch
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup sugar for topping (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a small bowl mix together the flax seeds and warm water and set aside.
In a large bowl cream together the vegan butter and sugar using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer until light and fluffy. About 1 minute.
Add in the flax seeds, lemon extract, and vanilla extract and beat again until combined.
Add in the flour, lavender, corn starch, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Then mix again, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally, until just mixed.
Roll the dough into one inch balls and roll them in the remaining sugar. Place them on parchment- lined baking sheets and bake for 10-12 mins or until lightly golden on the bottom.
Allow them to cool on the baking sheet.
