    Lemon Filling for Cookies

    Mon Nov 28, 2011 2:00 am Groupie
    In trying to come up with my Christmas cookie list this year, I had the idea of making a lemon thumbprint rolled in coconut.

    I'd like to make a lemon curd type filling that would end up setting firm and thick enough to hold up on a tray, and not stick to other cookies, with a top that would remain smooth. My experience with curds, both bought and home made, just wouldn't set thick enough.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    What about folding lemon curd into marshmallow fluff? That was my first thought.
    Then I saw this and seems to me you could just substitute yellow food coloring and lemon extract for the raspberry and red coloring and use it as a filling instead of cutting it into candy :

    After the cookies are baked, you could fill the depressions with:

    A- melted white chocolate chips to which 1 teaspoon (or to taste) of lemon flavoring and a drop or two of yellow food coloring has been added.

    B- use liquidy (before it sets) lemon fudge to fill the baked cookies.

    (I'm sure there are lots of recipes for lemon fudge in the database and online)

    The white chocolate or fudge seem like a perfect idea. Thanks!
