Lemon thyme cookies (vegan option)
Summer in cookie form.
300g/10 ½ oz plain flour (all-purpose flour)
80g/2 ¾ oz icing sugar (powdered sugar)
170g/6 oz margarine (vegan option)
¼ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons chopped thyme leaves
Zest from 4 lemons
Preheat your oven to 350F/180C/Gas 4.
Grease an 8” square baking tin and line with baking parchment. Leave an overhang so you can use the edges to lift the cookies out.
Mix together the flour, sugar, salt, thyme and lemon zest. Add the margarine and mix until combined, it will be a crumbly mixture. Press the dough into the prepared pan and smooth the top.
Bake for 20 minutes until lightly golden around the edges.
Allow it to cool in the tin.
Once cool, lift the parchment paper to release the mixture from the tin.
Cut into squares.
Replace the thyme with basil or rosemary.
Substitute the lemon for orange or lime.
