Crisp Lemon Cookies 1



When we were at our friend's house, her little girl arranged a little tea party for my girls. Oh yeah, a real tea and lemon cookies that she made herself, even served in a real tea set. Luckily my girls didn't knock over the tea or break the tea cup! The most memorable thing about this tea party for Evy was of course the lemon cookies. She couldn't stop telling me how tasty the lemon cookies were. So since she loved it so much, I went online and made her some lemon cookies. I would say the first batch that I tried, I didn't like it because the cookie was soft. I preferred my cookie crispy. Nevertheless, both my girls finished all the lemon cookies in a day. Since I was dissatisfied with the online recipe, I tried to create my own crispy lemon cookies. So, I came out with this recipe that I thought was pretty good. And I hope you will like it too!



Ingredients:


(A)
1 1/2 cup. all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/3 cup. powdered sugar

2 Tbsp. powdered milk


(B)
1/2 cup butter, softened (or 1 stick), cut into 4
2 tsp. Pure lemon extract

2 Tbsp. milk


(C)
Decorating color sugar or sprinkles (optional)

Method:

1. In a food processor, add (A), pulse to combine.

2. Add (B) and process until a dough formed around the blade. Take out the dough and give it a few knead to combine.

3. Roll into 1/4 inch and cut with a cookie cutter. Arrange on a lined baking sheet (with parchment paper) and decorate the cookies with (C) as desired.

4. Bake in preheated 350'F oven for 10-12 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cool completely on a wire rack. Keep in air-tight container.


This is my first batch of (failed) soft lemon cookies.

Those are very pretty cookies and it is lovely to catch up with friends. How old is her little one to have baked those cookies for her friends?

Can you please advise the equivalent weight for 1 stick of butter? Thanks. Beautiful cookies. I am going to make them with my two girls.

I can imagine the cute tea scene :)
Your cookies looks so cheery, I bet your girls adored them! Just like you I prefer my cookies quite crispy. Not sure if you're aware of the Original Recipes event I'm hosting but it's about recipes we create ourselves, your recipe fits the bill perfectly. Great job!

Thanks Blur Mommy. My girls surely enjoyed the tea party.

SiG, her little one is 10 years old. Very sweet and caring little girl. Even tried to make pancake breakfast for us.

Charming, 1 stick of butter here is equal to 113g. Hope you like it!

Thanks Lore. Let me hop over your blog to check out the Original Recipe event. I was not aware of it. :)
