Fresh Lemon Cookies!

Weird that I’m making summery, fresh lemon cookies the only 2 days it’s actually raining in Los Angeles, but hey, they still taste good 🙂

Found this via Whisk Kid, which turns out to be a pretty cool blog on top of having an awesome lemon cookie recipe!

Recipe adapted from Whisk Kid

  • Lemon juice, from half a lemon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

Ingredients for lemon icing:

  • 3/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • Lemon juice, from half a lemon

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Cream together the butter and sugar, then add the egg, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla. Sift in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

    These look fun … and happy. 😀

  5. For years I didn’t like lemon at all…not even sure why. But now, I can’t seem to get enough of it! These are gorgeous and look delicious. I can even make them gluten free and dairy free, thank you! Will have to put this on my baking list for tomorrow. 🙂

    • Lately I have been cooking & baking with a LOT of lemon – but this is the first time I’ve made lemon cookies, and it won’t be the last! Love that you can make everything into gluten & dairy free 🙂

    If this doesn’t look scrumptious, I don’t know what does!

  7. These look like they’d bring sunshine into any dull, cloudy day! Esp. with the cute decorations. 🙂

  8. These look so good, I’m going to make these this weekend!
