Ingredients

For the glaze:

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. To a large bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Add Pompeian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, vanilla extract and almond extract. Stir until a crumbly dough forms. Add 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk; stir until a soft dough ball forms, adding more milk if needed.
  4. Place the dough ball onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough until it is ¼-inch thick. Using a circular object (I used the lid of a jar), cut out cookies; place onto the baking sheet. Repeat until all the dough is used up.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes; do not overbake or they will be too crispy! Set aside to cool.
  6. In a small bowl, add powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons juice and salt. Stir until a thick glaze forms. Add more juice if needed to thin out the glaze, or add more powdered sugar if needed to thicken it.
  7. When the cookies are cooled, glaze the cookies. Top with slices of blood orange and a pinch of sugar!

Notes

*Some cane sugar is not vegan, as it can be processed with animal bone char. I use Trader Joe’s Organic Sugar. Go here for vegan cane sugars: https://ordinaryvegan.net/vegansugar/.

**To make your own powdered sugar, simply put cane sugar in a blender or food processor and blend until a fine powder forms. Cheap & easy!
