Vegan Shortbread Ingredients

You need flour, vegan butter, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract to make the shortbread cookies.

Make the lemon curd first by mixing all the ingredients together in a saucepan on medium heat. Whisk until the mixture has thickened and then put it in the refrigerator.

Step 1

Beat the butter until it is smooth. Then, add the sugar and cream until it is light and fluffy. Then, mix in your flour on low until a dough forms.

Step 2

Once the dough has formed, shape it into a ball and let it chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 350F. Roll out the chilled cookie dough to about 1/8 inch thick and cut out about 24 cookies. Use a piping tip to cut the middle out of half of them. Then bake!

Step 4

Let the baked cookies cool completely. Then, pipe about 1 tablespoon of lemon curd into the center of each shortbread cookie with the middle in tact.

Step 5
