Lemon Crinkle Cookies

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

These cookies are SO GOOD. Seriously, soooooo good. They are dense and chewy, the edges perfectly crispy, and the lemon flavour isn’t overpowering. It builds in your mouth, like a sugar cookie and a lemon had a baby and it was the cutest, sweetest baby ever that would never turn into a 13 year old that talks back and slams doors. That’s a totally normal analogy for a cookie.

So, obviously I’ve been hiding them. Saving them to show you on a day like today. The first day back after a long weekend. An overcast, cloudy day, threatening rain with every lick of the wind. This is the kind of day that needs a new cookie recipe. A bright, fresh, summer filled, lemon cookie recipe.

These don’t take a ton of extra work to whip up either. They’re your standard cookie – cream the butter and sugar, beat in the rest of the wet ingredients, mix in the dry ingredients, and that’s it. Then just use a cookie scoop (best invention ever for these kinds of recipes) to scoop out into balls that you can roll into icing sugar.

I don’t like my cookies to be supper puffy in the center, so I always flatten them a bit. Not a lot, just a little push.

After a quick trip in the oven you are left with a perfect, bright, chewy, and VERY addictive cookie. I’m sorry (for the addictive part), but you’ll thank me for it (the taste).
