Lemon Cookies

Lately the cold days make me want oven recipes and sweets … many many sweets! I feel like a bear accumulating energy for the coming spring. I don’t bake cookies very often (it requires a dose of patience that I naturally don’t have), but this time I told myself I wanted to do something like this!

Kettle on,  fireplace rady … and we’re ready for a perfect evening!


TIME: 45min

2 eggs
Zest of 1 lemon
300g plain flour
1 tbsp of ground cinnamon
100g of melted butter
150g Sugar
1 egg for brushing

100g Sugar (powder)
Lemon Juice
Sugar for dusting

Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
In a bowl beat the eggs with the sugar. Add the melted butter, lemon zest and cinnamon.
In another bowl place the flour and add the liquid mixture. Mix and knead until an uniform dough ready to be worked. You may need to add more flour.
Set aside for 30 minutes.
In a sprinkled with flour surface, roll out the dough to 1 cm, and cut it in the format you want. Do not forget that any format you choose should allow a cavity to take the lemon icing.
Bake until golden brown (about 15 minutes).
Remove and let cool them completely.
In a bowl place the powdered sugar and add a few drops of lemon juice, stirring until the desired consistency. Pour it in the wells and allow to dry before storing the cookies in a sealed flask. Dust with the icing sugar (optional).
