TWD - Lemon Sugar Cookies



This week's Dorie's Cookies recipe is Lemon Sugar Cookies.  These are really simple mix, roll and bake cookies, but the are delicious.

The lemon sugar cookies contain lemon juice and rind so that they definitely taste lemony.  The hardest thing to manage with these cookies is that they spread a lot.  Dorie says as much, as she means it.  I ended up only being able to bake 5 cookies at a time on a tray.  The first tray of cookies, with eight cookies on it, spread into one another.

From a half batch, I only got 18 cookies - according to the recipe, it should have made 30.  This was not a problem, as I don't want or need 30 cookies - just mentioning it as part of my experience in making these cookies.

The resulting cookie is caramelised and chewy - I loved them.

To see what everyone else made this week, visit the LYL section of the Tuesdays with Dorie website.

  1. the cookies in the pic look perfectly cooked - I am glad you got the hang of spacing them - this is always a challenge for me but I cope with square cookies luckily :-)

  2. These were tasty weren't they? And whoah re: the spreading. Normally I don't pay attention to the warnings about this but for some reason I did and glad I did - they spread so much! I'm already thinking of different ways to change the flavour!

  3. I can imagine the taste of these and they sound and look delicious. It's lucky you spaced them so well as your pictures look as if they are perfectly done!

  4. It always makes me wonder when recipes say you'll get X number of cookies and you get so many more or less! They do look good :D

  5. I loved these. I made them mini, but mine ended up more puffy than everybody else's. I wonder if it was an issue with the baking powder?

  6. These were very good. I used a tiny scoop so I got more than 60. Plenty to share.

  7. I'm glad I read your warning about spreading. I can be a little fast and loose with spacing, so I'll be sure to follow the instructions when I make these ones. They look so good!
