  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter I used Earth Balance vegan butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2-3 tsp lime zest from 2 limes
  • 3-4 tbsp lime juice from 2 limes
  • 1 flax egg 1 tbsp of flax meal mixed with 2.5 tbsp of water
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour blend
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 tbsp poppyseeds


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar with a mixer.
  • Then, add in the flax egg and lemon juice. Mix until combined.
  • Gradually mix in the flour mixture, scraping down the bowl in between each addition. Then stir in the poppyseeds until incorporated.
  • Scoop dough into balls slightly larger than a tablespoon and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes, until cookies are set just at the edges. Allow to cool on the pan for 5 minutes and then move to a wire rack to finish cooling.
