LEMON CRINKLE COOKIES


 LEMON CRINKLE COOKIES





A delicious refreshing lemon flavor sprinkled with powdered sugar. These are always a huge success!

 

Ingredients:

For the cookies:

  • 30 g melted unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100 g all purpose flour
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 50 g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

For the crinkle effect:

  • 150 g icing sugar

 

Instructions:

For the cookies:

  1. Mix the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar using a whisk.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix with a spatula.
  3. Take the mix to the fridge for an hour so it becomes more solid.
  4. Make small, one tablespoon balls between your hands.

For the crinkle effect:

  1. Pass the dough balls through the icing sugar and let it form a thick coat around it. Place them on a tray with baking paper with 4 fingers between each other as they tend to spread out.
  2. Take them to a preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 6-8min. Test the time with one cookie first so that you get the time for the rest. It's important not to overcook them so they don't go dry.
  3. Wait a couple of minutes before lifting the cookies off the baking paper because they come out soft still. Enjoy your dessert!
