Unbelievably simple fool proof recipe! The cookies are light and tasty and dangerously addictive. I actually picked this recipe because my 8yr old niece wanted to cook something all on her own – no adult help. They turned out so good no own believed she did it by herself! Forget storing them, she barely had any to take home. They also take flavoring well just a tsp or three (to taste) of any extract does wonders. We like lemon, almond and vanilla.
I was looking for a recipe like my grandmother’s cornstarch lemon cookies that we always ate at Christmas. These cookies have the perfect consistency. I added the zest of one lemon, a capful of vanilla, and since I used unsalted butter, I added a pinch of salt. These are great! They’re not overly sweet, but grandma used to put a lemonjuice/confectioner’s sugar glaze on them, which would probably make them that extra bit sweeter and tangier. They probably won’t travel all that well, but this kind of cookie never does.
I recieved some Melting Moments in a Christmas cookie exchange last year and loved them. The texture of these cookies isn’t as good, but I still liked them. I added 1/4 tsp. salt. I made them lemon by adding the zest of one lemon to the dough and frosting with a lemon butter frosting.
I have been making this exact recipe for years. It is one of our family’s favorites. Very simple, but wonderful. The only thing I do differently is I indent the dough before baking then fill it with a dap of homemade or store bought frosting. I use food coloring to make the frosting green and red for holidays. Looks and tastes incredible. You can also use jam/jelly.
These are lovely, perfectly crisp and crumbly shortbread cookies. I think they might benefit from a pinch of salt, since I used unsalted butter. Make sure to really whip that butter before combining.
- 175g of softened unsalted butter.
- 40g of icing sugar.
