In stand mixer, mix soy margarine and sugars and vanilla extract until light and fluffy, scraping sides often. Add in the salt, baking soda and coconut flour, mix until just combined. Add in the spelt flour and mix. Divide dough into two, mold into disks, wrap in plastic and fridge for 30 minutes, or up to 2 days.


Preheat oven 350F.


When ready, on the counter have parchment paper on the ready and sprinkled with flour. Take one ball of dough and roll out until it’s about 1/4 – 1/8” thick. Slide dough, still on the parchment paper, onto a baking sheet. Cut dough with 2” cutter, square or circle, and then cut another shape/heart/whatever using a 1.5” cutter in center of half the cookies. (aim for 12 cookies) Do not remove the centers yet. Remove dough scraps from around cookies and freeze the cookies for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, do the 2nd disk like the first.


When ready, switch up the trays. Transfer frozen cookies to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silphat. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Cool on wire rack.


Assemble cookie sandwiches like so: sprinkle powdered sugar on cookies with cutout centers. spread uncut cookies with jam or curd and sandwich with powdered cutouts. Serve Immediately. Boom


Store in an air tighter container until ready to spread with jam or curd; will keep for up to five days.

The secret to this standard lemon curd: a little dollop of vanilla bean paste. With the first lemons from my family's lemon tree and some careful tending by the stove, leftover egg yolks become something to brag about and make breakfast all the more worthwhile.
