I have always been fond of Citrusy flavors and while baking cookies for my grandkids I made these Lemon Cookies . These cookies are my Day 2 post under the theme Cookies for your Sweet Tooth.
I have noticed that the kids always want something with chocolate , but I wanted a slight diversion and baked these . Surprisingly the kids loved them , more then the kids it is we grown ups that enjoyed them . The cookies have a wonderful aroma and the zesty lemon flavour is very very pleasant . If you want to turn them vegan just substitute the butter to almond butter . Enjoy these Lemon Cookies today , tomorrow I shall bring you one more Cookie recipe that the kids will love .
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp cornstarch +3 tbsp water
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
11/2 cups flour
Powdered sugar for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix the first 7 ingredients in a mixing bowl .
Add flour and baking powder at the end and mix again.
Drop tablespoons sized pieces of dough onto a prepared parchment sheet.
Make sure you keep these about 3″ apart , as the cookies will spread.
Bake for 10 minutes or till done.
Remove the cookies and let cool.
