Lemon Cookies

Lemon Cookies created by wicked cook 46

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 :)

  • Place carefully on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 6 to 10 minutes until they are a pale golden color.

    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. ;-)

    I think it would of been better using the grams. I had to guess at the 3 7/8 ounces LOL and I was using a scale LOL. But they turned out . Very delicate and crisp cookie. I topped them with a lemon frosting for extra lemon zip. I like that they make a small batch . Could you repost the recipe with the grams ?? I will make these again. Made for Everyday is a Holiday

    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)
