  • 1 1⁄2 cup confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 1⁄3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. vegan margarine
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable shortening
  • Egg replacement equal to 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon zest
  • 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. unsweetened lemonade drink mix


  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Cream together 1⁄2 cup confectioners' sugar, granulated sugar, margarine, shortening, egg replacement, vanilla extract, salt, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and combine until the dough is crumbly. Form into 1-inch balls and place about 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes.

  • Cool completely.
