You'll Need

For the Cookies:
1 egg
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup melted butter (can sub vegan butter)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup Purecane™ zero-calorie Baking Sweetener
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped

For the Icing Drizzle:
1/4 cup Purecane™ Confectioners Sweetener
1-2 tsp almond milk

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line the bottom of a baking pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients: egg, lemon juice, melted butter, vanilla, and almond milk. Whisk until well combined.
  3. Once combined, add in Purecane™ zero-calorie Baking Sweetener, flour, baking powder, and salt and mix with a rubber spatula until a soft dough starts to form. Fold in the chopped strawberries and mix until well incorporated.
  4. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, scoop two spoonfuls and place them directly on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 22 minutes. While the cookies bake, make your icing. Combine the almond milk and Purecane™ Confectioners Sweetener until you've reached the desired consistency (the more almond milk you add, the more liquidy the icing). Drizzle on top of cookies and enjoy!
