These Vegan Blackberry Cookies are extra soft, thanks to the coconut milk. The marriage of the blackberries and orange flavors in this recipe is to die for. For this recipe I used fresh blackberries and would not recommend using frozen one as they might soak the cookies.
Vegan Blackberry Cookies
- Preheat the oven to 375°F.
- In a bowl, combine butter, orange zest, sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
- Add vanilla extract and flax egg. Beat well.
- Sieve together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to wet mixture, alternating with the coconut milk, and mix well.
- Gently stir in the blackberries, being careful not to crush them.
- Refrigerate the dough for 2 hours.
- Make balls the size of a golf ball, and place them on cookie sheets lined with silicone mats.
- Bake in the top of the oven, 12 to 15 minutes.
- Let cookies stand 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before placing on a rack. Let them cool completely. During that time mix powdered sugar and coconut milk in a bowl.
- Pour the frosting over the top of the cookies with a spoon.
