Elderberry Sugar Cookies

Fun kid baking project from Katie’s Coldpress with a #berryboost thrown in
Servings 25 cookies


  • 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 [BUY NOW]
  • 2 Tbsp milk plant based works well here
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together the first 5 wet ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl mix the dry and then add to the wet.
  3. Mix together, roll out to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut the cookies. Bake on ungreased pan for 9 minutes. Let cool.
  1. 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. ?
