I’ve decided that I really like making cookies.
Strike #1,343,987 against my goal of losing a few pounds.
Oh well, I’ll worry about that tomorrow.
Because of this new cookie obsession, I have a feeling I will be trying out several recipes this holiday season. This week was no exception.
Lemon Crinkle Cookies (adapted from LDS Magazine)
- ½ cups butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 whole egg
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest
- 2 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- ¼ teaspoons salt
- ¼ teaspoons baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoons baking soda
- 1½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350º and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cream together sugar and butter until fluffy.
Next whip in vanilla, egg, lemon juice/zest.
In another bowl, combine dry ingredients through flour and slowly add to cream mixture. Thoroughly combine.
Put powered sugar on a plate, roll batter into heaping teaspoon balls and roll in powdered sugar.
Place on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 9-11 minutes until barely brown and they have a matte look to them. Cool on sheet for a bit, then transfer to a baking rack to finish cooling completely.
This was a very simple recipe that makes delicious cookies! They would make great gifts this holiday season! The problem with this is keeping myself and the DH from eating them before I can get them wrapped up! 🙂
