Recipe: Vegan Blackberry Basil Lemon Cookies

Perfect for Valentine’s Day or any other day – and I believe every day is cake day. As Valentine’s Day is coming up though, I chose my hearts cookie pan. The more important decision to me was that I wanted to try and make vegan cookies. In the end that turned out far easier than expected. Nowadays there are so many substitutes for dairy products. I easily found vegan butter and also cream. The one I used is a mix of coconut cream and almond milk.

To be honest, this is the first time that I have baked since Christmas. We had that agreement that my baking goods were possibly one of the main reasons why we put on weight. But Valentine’s cookies are surely a great reason to make an exception. These blackberry basil lemon cookies are really fruity. Because I made them in the mold, they are a little thicker than your average cookie and therefore very fluffy on the inside. They also take longer in the oven.

I think the cookies might look a little more even if I had puréed the blackberries before adding them to the dough. But this would change the cookie color to a more purple greenish shade – just that you are aware if you try it.

As I made the cookies a few days in advance, we can enjoy them sensibly until Valentine’s Day – or at least we’ll try (and possible fail).

  1. Very tasty. The basil adds a distinctly different flavor from other similar lemon poppy-seed type cookies Also makes very good scones.
