I don’t generally like lemon flavored foods, I love the smell of lemons, and the taste in a beverage, but to eat, not as much. I know that I am in the minority when it comes to that, so I was happy to find a unique recipe that caters to those lemon lovers out there, and hope it tastes divine.
- Follow the below recipe for classic sugar cookies, and make the substitutions as needed.
- Make Classic Sugar Cookies with 1 cup granulated sugar total (omit confectioners’) and lemon zest instead of orange; omit baking powder. Chill. Pulse 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon lemon zest in a food processor. Roll dough into two 1-inch-thick logs and roll in the lemon sugar. Freeze logs 20 minutes, then slice 1 inch thick. Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 325 degrees.
Happy baking, eating, and holidays!
