da392d01fbe5926ce65aa7b37b585cca

Loved the idea of having these lemon curd filled cookies for breakfast!! With my cup of morning coffee….. Can’t think of anything better right now… ūüôā

The recipe is great and it’s here, but going dairy free I ‘ll need to change it a bit to have the chance to try them!

In fact I think I won’t have to change much…. I’ll follow exactly¬†fraulein-Klein’s recipe and I’ll replace only the milk with a plant one and the cheese with coconut yogurt.

Ingredients:

350 gr. of all-purpose flour
1 tsp of baking powder
70 gr. of sugar
1 pack. Vanilla sugar
1 egg
2 tsp zest of an organic lemon
and 1 tablespoon lemon juice
75 ml of coconut oil, or olive oil
60 ml of almond milk
250 gr. coconut yogurt

Dust:      Icing sugar
1 pack. Vanilla sugar

Filling:    Lemon Curd

As for a dairy free lemon curd option, I decided that this one will be great!!! You are only gonna need: 2 eggs, 2 egg yolks, 1/3 cup of raw honey, half a cup of lemon juice, zest from two organic lemons, 6 tbsp of coconut oil and a pinch of unrefined sea salt.

Preparation:

  1. First you have to make the lemon curd as described on savorylotus.com. You better make this the day before and keep it in your fridge.
  2. Shift flour with baking powder in a bowl.
  3. Beat lightly the egg, add the sugar, lemon juice and zest and whisk.
  4. Add the almond milk and coconut oil and mix to combine.
  5. Finally, add the flour mix along with the coconut yogurt and knead  until you have  a smooth dough.
  6. Dust your working surface with plenty of flour.
  7. Roll the dough about 3 mm thick.
  8. Cut your “eggs”¬†with an oval shape cookie cutter.
  9. Additionally cut out a small circle ¬†in the middle of the half “eggs”.4
  10. Bake  (sub / top heat) until golden brown for about 15 minutes.
  11. Allow to cool.
  12. Sprinkle the egg halves with the hole with a mixture of powdered and vanilla sugar.
  13. Spread lemon curd onto the eggs without a hole,  and cover with the other half.
  14. EnJoy!!!!

Fraeulein-Klein had this perfect idea to put them into egg cartons…. just fantastic!!!! ‚̧5
