    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    I made these lemon cookies for my Christmas cookie tray this year. They are a light a delicate cookie with a texture a bit like shortbread. I cut them into various shapes, including people and made them a bit like 'lemon bread men'. The recipe originally came from the UK TV cook Rachel Allen. I originally posted this trying to convert from grams to ounces and it was too confusing. So, I have put it back to grams :)

      6 1/4 ounces plain flour = 1 cup plus 7 tbsp (1½ cups less 1 tbsp) 3 7/8 ounces butter, soft = 1/2 cup (1 stick) 1 2/3 ounces sugar = 1/4 cup (using granulated white sugar)

      These were delicious and SO quick and simple to make! I added in a squirt of lemon juice and a drop of vanilla essence, and used a combination of buckwheat and coconut flour to make them gluten free. YUM!

      Very good. I found them a bit crumbly, but that is likely because I softened the butter too much. :-) On the bright side, it meant I could just squish them into little circles and bypass the rolling and cutting! I also squeezed a little extra lemon juice in there and sprinkled with powder sugar... shhhh. ;-)
