“When life gives you lemons, add sweet tea!” ~ unknown

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! 🙂
