I was trying to make lemon cookies, but ended up making something totally different and I was glad with the outcome.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Cream sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Whisk flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl; gradually beat into creamed butter mixture until just combined. Beat eggs, 1 at a time, into butter-flour mixture until dough is thoroughly mixed; stir in lemon extract. Drop small scoops of dough onto a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies spring back when touched, 10 to 12 minutes.

I loved these cookies! I did add lemon zest to the batter because I didn't think it could hurt to have more lemon flavor. I must say that I think 400 degrees is too high to bake such a delicate cookie. I baked mine at 350 for 9 minutes, and they were perfect. They were light on the bottom and perfectly set. I don't like the taste of glaze made with lemon juice (too tart), so I made my glaze with powdered sugar, water, and added lemon extract (and tinted it yellow), so it made a very pretty cookie (glaze had a nice lemon flavor without being so sour). Going in my "keeper" file!

I made these exactly as directed and I thought that they were just OK. If I make these again I will definitely add in some lemon zest. I did make a lemon glaze and drizzle on top, and it was very tasty. The cookies turned out moist and had a great texture, however the bottoms got very brown, very quickly - and I baked on parchment lined cookie sheets. I even cut the time down to 8 minutes of baking but the bottoms just got really dark, almost burnt. I used a tablespoon size cookie scoop and I got exactly 30, uniform cookies. They still get four stars though because my kids really liked them.

These cookies are delicious! I followed the tips that were left in the previous reviews (bake @ 350 for 9 min, add lemon zest to batter). My husband, brother-in-law and son loved them. For my glaze, I melted butter, combined with powdered sugar, milk and lemon juice. Not too tart with just enough lemon flavor. Will bake again, thank you!
