I have been craving something sweet…..so I decided to try out lemon cookies for the 1st time. When they were all done…..I called my super tasters to try them out. They gave the recipe a thumbs up…..so that means it’s time to share.
6 tsp butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup Squash Puree
1 teaspoon lemon zest*
3 tablespoon fresh lemon juice*
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a food processor or large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add squash, lemon juice and lemon zest. Beat until well combined. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until they are combined. Place the powdered sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
Scoop about a tablespoon of the cookie dough and roll into a ball. Repeat with the rest of the dough, press dough with your fingers to flatten a little. Bake for about 10 minutes, or just until the bottoms of the cookies begin to brown and the cookies are no longer shiny. Remove from the oven and let rest for a minute or two. Next transfer cookies to a wire rack to completely cook. Store cookies in an airtight container.
Enjoy & Until Next Time,
