    subaruthie's Note:

    This recipe was given to me by a friend when I was starting to cook for my boyfriend (now husband) with food allergies. I used her original written recipe so often I had to post it here so I wouldn't lose it before it became unreadable (Thanks, K!) These don't last long around our house! Try substituting lime for some of the lemon!

      I'm so glad these came up when I googled "Vegan Lemon Cookies." I wanted something easy, fast, and lemony and this fit the bill perfectly! I only made 1/4 of the recipe, which gave me 9 med/large cookies. I also replaced 1/3 of the oil with unsweetened applesauce. I may try reducing the sugar a bit next time. I needed to bake them for 12 minutes and they came out chewy wih a little crunch on the lightly-browned bottoms. The lemon taste was very prominent, which is great. Lots of thanks to the recipe poster!

      Great recipe! I only used 1 cup of sugar and will probably only use 3/4 cup next time. A review above suggested less sugar and I am glad I read that. I also replaced a 1/4 cup of regular flour with coconut flour. These were really good!! Thanks for sharing!!

      This is a great recipe! I used lemons from my lemon tree. It took about 5 medium sized lemons to equal the 2 Tbsp of fresh zest. I used my juicier to juice the lemons; I had leftover juice so I made fresh lemonade with it. Cookies are very easy to make, I followed the recipe but added 1/2 tsp of Sea Salt instead of 1/4 tsp. I baked it for about 10-12 mins in my gas oven. If you cook it until edges are brown then you get a crispy cookie. If you bake it no more than 10 mins, you will get a chewy cookie (which I prefer). My husband and 3 yo daughter loved the cookies. My mom-in-law thought they had a buttery taste, lol! I only bake vegan desserts, so this is a keeper! Thanks for the recipe!
