I have been making these for years. They are really light and wonderful with a cup of strong tea.
Make and share this Lemon Tea Cookies recipe from Food.com.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Stir vinegar into milk. Cream butter and sugar together until fluffy. Beat in egg and lemon peel.
- Sift together dry ingredients and add to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Beat after each addition.
- Drop from a teaspoon 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes (don’t let them brown). Remove from sheets and immediately transfer to cooling racks.
This is a wonderful recipe! I've been making these for years from a BHG cookbook. I was glad to find that someone posted it online since I don't have the book anymore. One thing I remember doing differently is adding a topping to the cookie for more lemon flavor. Just mix a little sugar and lemon juice together (not sure of the ratio) and brush over the cookies while they are still hot.
I liked these. Good and homemade. They were light as a feather and all gone in a flash! Really moist, little cookies. I love lemon and will increase lemon zest a bit next time. Thank-you for posting.
