These vegan cookies are amazing, in both flavor and texture. One of my daughters has been vegan for about 2 years and honestly, we have found most vegan cookie recipes to be pretty awful. Fortunately, this one is a keeper! The finished cookies are pleasantly crisp and taste super rich and buttery. They're delicious by themselves, but we made a vegan glaze for a little something extra.
Whatever you do, don't skimp on the lemon rind! I thought 4 teaspoons would be overpowering in such a small amount of dough, but the flavor of these cookies was a hit with everyone in my family.
Note: Despite following the recipe exactly and using 2" round cookie cutters, I came out with only 40 cookies (instead of 50).
