  • Mix flour, cacao powder, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and lemon zest in the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • Add the dairy-free butter and milk. Mix, with a flat beater attached, until you have a smooth dough. → Feel free to mix the dough by hand if you don't have a stand or hand mixer.
  • Form it into a ball or disc, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes. → The dough can be refrigerated for up to two days. If so, let it sit for 15 minutes at room temperature before rolling it out.
  • Preheat your oven to 355°F (180°C).
  • Place the dough on a floured surface and roll it out, using a rolling pin, to about ¼-inch (½ cm) thickness.
  • Using a linzer cookie cutter, cut the dough into shapes. Re-roll the remaining dough and continue cutting until all dough is used. → Make sure that you have an equal amount of bottom and top cookies.
  • Transfer the cookies to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven.
  • Remove from the oven, allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Sprinkle the tops with powdered sugar (optional) and spread ½ teaspoon of jam on the bottoms. Place the tops on the bottoms, and you are done!


Store them in a cookie tin at room temperature.
Keeps fresh for at least one week.
Make-Ahead: You can store the cookie dough after step 3 for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Let it sit for 15 minutes at room temperature, then continue with step 4.
