My husband and I own a business, and we had a client based in the U.K. for several years. One of my fondest memories of our time spent there was afternoon tea. I have tried for years to perfect a vegan version and think I finally have a recipe worth sharing.

There is a vast difference between salted vs. unsalted butter and I  would highly recommend using Miyoko’s Unsalted Butter. I have used Earth Balance and they are good but there is something special about Miyoko’s variety when making these cookies.

I ordered a special shortbread cookie cutter, available here. However, you can use any cookie cutter or simply roll the dough into a rectangle and cut it into slices after baking. If you do use the cookie cutter, the dough can tend to stick into the crevices. I would advise lightly tapping the cutter on the counter to release the cookie from the cutter.

I also recommend using parchment sheets that are available through Amazon.

There is also a fantastic deal on stand mixers through Walmart, called Beautiful by Drew Barrymore. The motor is almost as powerful as the Kitchen Aid but the Beautiful version is so lighter and much easier to lift in and out of the cupboard. Plus, now priced at $99 it is $200+ less expensive than the Kitchen Aid brand.

Lemons are in season! Summer seems to bring the best lemons to every corner of the United States. My 9-year-old grandson, unlike other kids his age, loves anything lemon. He, like his grandmother, is not a huge chocolate fan and prefers sweet and tart flavors.

We were celebrating his birthday and he requested a lemon cake. The recipe is entirely vegan and makes a super moist and delicious dessert. Since the frosting contains cream cheese (I used Trader Joe’s brand), I recommend storing it in the refrigerator under a covered cake stand.  However if refrigerator space is at a minimum and you don’t have a cake stand, opt for putting the leftover cake in a deep bowl and covering it with wrap.

ENJOY!

Absolutely amazing…if I may say so myself!

I am so thankful to Kite Hill for inventing Vegan Ricotta. My Italian life is so much easier and happier!

These cookies are fairly simple to make and a little cookie is just the right amount to satisfy your sweet tooth…although it is hard to eat just one!

Feel free to add more lemon zest to the recipe but I personally think this recipe has just the right amount, without being overpowering.

Enjoy!
