Elderberry Sugar Cookies
Fun kid baking project from Katie's Coldpress with a #berryboost thrown in.
3/4 cup butter softened to room temp, vegan butter spread works too.
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, room temp flax seed egg replacement works too.
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp Carmel Berry Co Elderberry Syrup
2 Tbsp milk plant based works well here
2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together the first 5 wet ingredients.
In a separate bowl mix the dry and then add to the wet. Mix together, roll out to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut the cookies.
Bake on ungreased pan for 9 minutes. Let cool.
For the frosting, mix a 1:1 mixture of elderberry syrup and your choice of milk (I used almond) into powdered sugar until it reaches an easy-to-spread consistency.
Grate lemon zest over the cookies once the frosting has dried to make them extra-special.
