If you love lemon flavor then hurry!
At home, we love lemon dessert, it can be lemon tart or lemon cake, we just love them! So hubby decided to make those delicious easy lemon cookies for an afternoon time full of flavor. Oh yes! There is not only me that cooked around here. Small and big, we all cook. Those cookies are really easy to make, they are crunchy outside and soft inside.
100g of soft butter
The juice and the zest of one lemon
120g of sugar
300g of flour and 4g of baking powder
Sugar and icing sugar in 2 separated bowl
In a mixing bowl, mix the butter and the egg. Add the juice and the zest. Pour the sugar and mix, then add the flour and the baking powder. Mix until having a consistent dough. Put the dough in a bowl, cover with a plastic wrap, let it chill in the fridge during 30mins.
Once it has chilled, preheat your oven to 180°C
Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and the 2 bowls of sugar. Take a small part of the dough with the help of a spoon, then shape them into a small ball of around 4cm diameter in your hands. Make them roll in the sugar, then in the icing sugar.
Once they are all shaped, let them chill in the fridge for 15mins. Then place them on the baking sheet and bake them for 15mins.
Voilà! Enjoy them with a hot tea.
