Vegan Lemon Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by subaruthie

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!

These cookies are AMAZING!!! I pretty much just followed the recipe and they turned out fantastic. Only thing I did differently was to replace a third of the oil with applesauce and use a little less zest than indicated. Although my teeny, tiny, temperamental studio oven bakes really unevenly and some cookies ended up a little more well done than the others, they all turned out to be delicious! I put a little store bought icing on them and that was great but they are scrumptious and plenty sweet without icing. Thanks for a great recipe!
