These are soft melt in your mouth cookies and very hard to stop at just one. Nice with a hot cup of tea or a cold glass of milk.
50g Icing Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla
3 tsp dry Lemon Peel or zest of 4 lemons
225g Plain Flour
3 Tbl Cornflour [Cornstarch]
Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and peel until light and fluffy. Sift the flour and cornflour into the butter mix.
Roll into small balls and lightly press with a fork.
You can also pipe these onto the tray, but i find it a pain and too much clean up after.
Cook 175 Celsius or 350 Fahrenheit for about 12 mins, these do not need to be brown.
Let them firm up a bit before placing on a wire rack to cool.
125g Icing Sugar
1 1/2 tsp dry Lemon Peel or zest of 2 lemons
Mix in enough juice to make a soft spreadable icing but not too runny, just add more icing sugar if its too soft. Spread over cold cookies or you can sandwich them with icing in the centre.
I hope your not all sick of lemon recipes yet as i have a few more to come.
Why so many, you might ask well i do love anything lemon but as there is so much juice, peel and seeds when you process the lemons then you also need recipes to use them up.
If you make these you will not be disappointed, the flavour is delicate yet tart.
