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!
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
1/2 cup butter, softened (or 1 stick), cut into 4
2 tsp. Pure lemon extract
2 Tbsp. milk
Decorating color sugar or sprinkles (optional)
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.
