Lemon Curd Thumbprints


Lemon Curd Thumbprints

These are special for holidays, but easy enough for everyday.

These beautiful vegan cookies are perfect for holidays all year round, but they're easy enough for an everyday-cookie treat. I like to prepare my Vegan Lemon Curd the night before I prepare to make my cookies, but feel free to do it the same day as long as your curd has time to chill in the refrigerator to set.

Makes 2 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 1 Recipe Vegan Lemon Curd (see Headnote)
  • -----------------------------------------------------------
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup finely ground almonds or cashews
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2/3 cup agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup canola oil


1. Prepare the Vegan Lemon Curd according to the recipe's instructions, allowing for 2 hours chilling the refrigerator.

2. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, sift together the flour, finely ground almonds and salt until well combined, making a well in the center. Add the agave nectar and canola oil to the center, and, using a wooden spoon, stir the mixture until it forms a dry dough that just holds together (is should not crumble, but it should not be wet).

4. Form the dough into small 2" balls, a place each onto the prepared sheet, pressing a "thumbprint" into the center of each and slightly flattening. (The cookies will not spread, so make them the size that you want!) Add about 1 to 1 1/2 T. of the Vegan Lemon Curd to each thumbprint and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Let cookies cool for several minutes on the sheet before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
