Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

These lemon and poppy seed cookies call for spring. They are sweet and tangy at the same time and as smooth as you want; I'm sure they will be popular with everyone in your family. Again, a simple recipe with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. If you don't have poppy seeds, don't hesitate to make them anyway since they are optional.

Ingredients (14 cookies)

5 tbsp Vegan margarine, softened
1/2 cup Granulated sugar
1/4 cup Plant-based milk
Half a lemon's juice
Half a lemon's zest
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Pure Organic Camu Camu
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp Vegan Pro - Maple Vanilla
1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
1 tbsp Poppy seeds (optional)

1 tbsp Vegan margarine, softened
1/2 cup Icing sugar
2 tbsp Plant-based milk
1/4 tsp Vanilla extract


1. Start by preheating your oven to 350 °F (180 °C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Reserve.

2. In a large bowl, soften your vegan margarine for about 20 seconds in the microwave. Then add the granulated sugar to it and cream everything with a mixer.

3. Finally, add the lemon juice and zest, the plant-based milk, then vanilla extract and mix again with the mixer.

4. In a small bowl, mix the dry ingredients together (from the baking powder to the poppy seeds). Gradually add these to the liquid ingredients, stirring with a fork.

5. Using a small ice cream scoop, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet until you get 14 cookies.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 14 minutes. When out of the oven, mash the cookies with the back of a fork and let cool completely before glazing.

7. For the icing: Soften the margarine in the microwave, then add the icing sugar as well as the plant-based milk and the vanilla extract to it. Blend until smooth.

8. Lightly glaze your cookies. Let the icing set before eating.

Store at room temperature in an airtight container or freeze without worries.
