These Vegan Citrus Cookies are bursting with bright citrus juice and zest. The perfect cookie for springtime or Easter.
There is no denying that I am a big citrus fan. I am always adding some sort of fresh citrus juice to my recipes. I honestly can’t get enough. My three go-to citrus fruits are: lemons, limes and oranges. I try to buy organic whenever possible, especially if I am using the zest of the citrus fruit. In these Vegan Citrus Cookies, I used a combination of my three favorite citrus fruits. If you love citrus as much as I do, then these cookies are for you.
The base of the cookie is a simple sugar cookie. Instead of using vegan butter, I like to use coconut oil for these cookies. The cookie dough is infused with fresh lemon, lime and orange juice and zest. I like to add both the zest and juice to achieve a really, bright flavorful citrus cookie.
After the cookies have baked and cooled, they are topped with a sugary citrus glaze. To make these cookies festive, more citrus zest is sprinkled on top!
These Vegan Citrus Cookies are perfect for any springtime celebration.
